ARIA Awards Aussie music

Recognising the many achievements of Aussie artists across all music genres, the ARIA (Australian Recording Industry Association)  Awards are the music industry’s annual night of nights. 

The ARIA Awards have come a long way since its first appearance in front of 500 industry guests at the Sydney Sheraton Wentworth Hotel in 1987. More than two decades later, the ARIAs are now held in front of 2,500+ guests, 5,000+ members of the general public and to an audience of 2 million viewers of live commercial television.
