In the early years, the Music Victoria Awards were a relatively small affair, with only a few categories and nominees.

However, as the Australian music scene has continued to grow and develop, so to have the awards.

One of the things that sets the Music Victoria Awards apart is our deep commitment to promoting diversity and inclusivity in the music industry.

In recent years, we’ve introduced new categories and initiatives to the Awards that are specifically aimed at recognizing and supporting marginalized groups.

So whether you’re a headliner, a seasoned pro or an up-and-coming talent, the Music Victoria Awards are your chance to be part of something truly special.

The Music Victoria Awards are not just been about recognizing great music – they’re also about bringing the industry together, creating new connections and opportunities for collaboration, and celebrating the incredible passion and creativity that drives the live music capital of the world.

Music Victoria advocates, celebrates and supports on the unceded lands of the peoples of the Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to Elders, past and present, as well as to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. We deeply respect the role that music and songlines play and have played in the continuation of their culture for the past 60,000+ years.
