National Live Music Awards

Nominations are now open for the National Live Music Awards, which will return with a live event in October 2023. The awards contain both national and state focused categories, voted on by the live industry (including fellow musicians, media, venues, bookers) with select public voted categories. Past winners of the awards’ biggest category (Live Act of the Year) include Sampa The Great, Electric Fields, Baker Boy, Gang of Youths and The Smith Street Band. Industry members are encouraged to start contributing nominations sooner rather than later for the judges to consider. Over 60 awards will be handed out on the night.
Nominations close 30 June 2023; learn more and nominate.
