2021 Aria Awards
2 weeks ago 97 Tyson

The Aria Awards (Annual Australian Recording Industry Association Music Awards) were held last night, the awards show looked even more different this year taking on a whole new format, compared to last year where they took place in the usual sound stadium (obviously with no audience).

This year they adjusted the format even more, creating it into an online only awards event sponsored and provided by Youtube Music, and could be viewed on Youtube and 9now which you can watch here and it was held at Toronga Zoo in Sydney, NSW, Australia, on Cammeraigal Country.

The pandemic may still be effecting the Arias, we are still amazed by some very talented artists each year.

The Arias featured Australian artists like Tones and I, Amy Shark, The kid Laroi, Genesis Owusu who performed his latest tracks and at the same time took home 4 Arias, now lets go through some of the few main categories that took place.
