The Age Music Victoria Awards will celebrate its 11th year with a huge line up of Victoria’s best talent at 170 Russell on Wednesday 16 November.

In 2016 the event falls within the Melbourne Music Week program, with all of the Awards formalities completed earlier in the evening to allow for one big After Party open to the general public from 8.30pm.

Co-presented by Triple R 102.7FM and PBS 106.7FM, the After Party will feature live sets from Melbourne Ska Orchestra, Camp Cope and Tash Sultana.

Continuing with past traditions, members from the RockWiz Band will once again form The EG AllStars, who will be joined on stage by guests Paul Dempsey, Gareth Liddiard, Kylie Auldist, REMI, Pierce Brothers, Alex Lahey, Gawurra and Freya Josephine Hollick, performing their best songs of the year.

A carefully selected panel of industry experts select the nominees for the Awards each year in categories representing a variety of genres, venues and festivals.

Music Victoria and The Age are also delighted to welcome iconic community broadcaster Triple R 102.7FM into The Age Music Victoria Hall of Fame. Celebrating their 40th birthday, Triple R has shaped and inspired the culture of Melbourne since 1976, housing over 60 diverse programs with over 440,000 listeners per week.

Once again, $5 from every ticket sold will be donated to charity partner Support Act Limited, which has received almost $50,000 from the event over the last ten years.

Nominees are announced and public voting is live on The Age website from 7 October to 4 November 2016.

Tickets $30 + BF via or phone 1300 724 867
