Back for their 12th year, The 2017 Age Music Victoria Awards will once again celebrate and acknowledge the efforts of Victoria’s musicians, venues, and festivals in the midst of Melbourne Music Week – concluding with a massive After Party.
The evening is set to feature live sets from Harvey Sutherland & Bermuda, local post-punks Gold Class, fast-rising powerhouse Cable Ties and some of the best songs of the year as performed by the legendary EG Allstars Band - featuring members of the Rockwiz Orchestra and a huge rotating roster of talented guest musicians.
This year’s event will also see the induction of respected producer, sound engineer, and three-time ARIA award-winner Tony Cohen into The Age Music Victoria Hall Of Fame.
