The Music Victoria Awards are on once again, taking place at the stunning Melbourne Recital Centre on Wednesday 20 November as part of Melbourne Music Week.

This year’s Awards night performers include 2019 Hall of Fame inductees Vika and Linda Bull and first-time Awards nominee Gordon Koang, who is up for a whopping five nominations this year. They will be joined by dark-folk metal act and Best Heavy Album nominee Suldusk and Bad Apples powerhouse, Philly as well as former Triple R Album of The Week recipient and AMP nominee, Grand Salvo. Each of these artists will hit the Melbourne Recital Centre stage to perform their own standout tracks from the past 12 months.

“What an honour to be given the Hall Of Fame award by Music Victoria, we’ve loved every one of our 35 years of being part of the vibrant Melbourne music scene.” – Vika Bull

“We are genuinely surprised to be given this most precious Hall of Fame award. To be included alongside our heroes is the biggest honour and we are so happy and proud to be recognised by Music Victoria.” – Linda Bull

Excitement is building around the event thanks to Bendigo Bank, which is once again offering generous cash prizes of $3,000 for each of the winners in the industry-voted categories for the Best Regional and Outer Suburban Act, Best Regional/Outer Suburban Venue (Over 50 gigs per year) + Best Regional/Outer Suburban Venue (Under 50 gigs per year).

“We are excited and honoured to support this fantastic event for the second year running.
