The Age and Music Victoria will welcome 10 acts to this year’s Hall of Fame including John Farnham, The Seekers, Archie Roach and AC/DC.
The 2015 Hall of Fame will be officially launched with a concert at Melbourne’s iconic Palais Theatre, which over the years has been the venue for artists such as The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, The Clash and Joni Mitchell. The theatre will also be awarded a 2015 induction.
“These inductees are the architects of Victorian music and we are privileged to have the opportunity to pat tribute to all in this one never-to-be-repeated event,” said Music Victoria CEO Patrick Donovan.
