Recognising The Greats
Each year as part of the Music Victoria Awards, Music Victoria inducts into its Hall of Fame those remarkable people that have made a significant contribution to Victorian music and the cultural fabric of our state.


Inductees can include not only musicians, but broadcasters, producers, journalists, festivals, music managers, labels and more – any person or business that has contributed greatly to the Victorian music scene over 25+ years.

An inductee may have been born elsewhere, but are eligible if they lived in Victoria at a vital stage in their career and made a significant contribution to our culture.


Members cannot self-nominate for the Hall of Fame category, but Music Victoria calls on their membership to put forward suggestions for consideration.


The current Hall of Fame voting academy is made up of an experienced and diverse cross-section of key industry figures including former inductees and chairs for each of the genre panels for the Music Victoria Awards.

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.
