Music Victoria’s nominees for the 2022 award have been revealed.

“The nominees that have been announced today are those that have been determined as the very best of their category by experts in the field”, said Music Victoria CEO Simone Schinkel.

“I was lucky enough to be allowed in the room during the judging process. The passion with which the decisionmakers discussed the music gave me goosebumps – it has to be the greatest part of my job.”

“Victorians should be so proud of the music that is being made right here – now let’s give these artists the recognition, love and respect they deserve – go give them a listen, or better yet, grab a ticket to their next gig.”
