Following a stellar 2017 edition of the APRA Music Awards which saw Flume score three nods, APRA AMCOS have today announced the details of their 2018 awards.
Taking place at the International Convention Centre Grand Ballroom in Sydney’s Darling Harbour on April 10th, the 36th edition of the APRA Music Awards will see honours handed out in a variety of categories, including Songwriter of the Year, Most Played Australian Work, and the highly-coveted APRA Song Of The Year.
This year’s festivities are set to be hosted by none other than Julia Zemiro, who will be making a highly-anticipated comeback as host. “For 12 years as the host of RocKwiz, I have had the sweetest gig: working with six generations of Australian artists, watching them work at close range and learning about their trials and tribulations,” Zemiro explained.
“Hosting the APRA Music Awards is a wonderful celebration of many of these artists, their songwriting skills and the publishers who get them out there. The night itself is a joy: listening to five Song of the Year finalists LIVE, not performed by the artists themselves, but by five different artists. Sometimes an homage. Sometimes a re-invention. Always fascinating. It’s a one-off awards event.”
Likewise, Robert Conley will be returning to the awards for the fourth time as the musical director, showcasing the talent gained from many years of working with countless big names in the music industry both here and abroad.
