It has been another successful ARIA Awards for Mushroom Publishing with four artists picking up gongs and Michael Gudinski recognised for his devotion to Australian music yet again. The Star in Sydney played host to Sunday night’s 27th ARIA Awards ceremony and the event was broadcast on the Nine Network’s digital channel GO!
Highlights from the evening included a very special performance of ‘Riptide’ by Vance Joy, Bliss N Eso’s medley including singles ‘House Of Dreams’ & ‘My Life’, & Birds Of Tokyo kicking off proceedings with their astonishing track, ‘Lanterns’.
Congratulations to Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Matt Corby, Kasey Chambers and Shane Nicholson, and Illy who all scored ARIA Awards on the evening, an impressive achievement for a world-class group of artists.
