Queensland music’s night of nights at the Royal ICC
The state’s best music artists and rising stars will be recognised at the Queensland Music Awards at the Royal International Convention Centre (Royal ICC) tonight.
Already an ARIA award-winner, popular Gold Coast singer Amy Shark is leading the way alongside Brisbane band The Jungle Giants with three nominations each – Amy in the pop, regional and singer/songwriter categories and The Jungle Giants in the pop, video and Album of the Year sections.
With 23 awards up for grabs, the Queensland Music Awards, run by QMusic, are expected to attract more than 600 music industry identities and fans tonight.
The prestigious awards have been running since 2006 and with industry heavyweights including Petrina Convey from Sony Music on the judging panel, they’ve kick-started the careers of many well-known artists including Emma Louise, best known for her song ‘My Head is a Jungle.’
Brisbane Showgrounds General Manager of Venue Sales and Marketing Jago Coyle said it was the first time the Queensland Music Awards had been held at the Royal ICC.
“The Brisbane Showgrounds is the perfect venue fit – it has been home to some of the most popular music festivals including Livid, Soundwave, Stereosonic and Laneway for years,” he said.
“We’re thrilled to host this event, as it celebrates Queensland music and supports artists and music fans across the state.”
The Queensland Music Awards get underway at 6pm.
The Brisbane Showgrounds precinct is located just 1.5km from Brisbane’s CBD and is
Queensland’s largest indoor/outdoor events site.
