Thanks to the continued support from the South Australian Government’s Music Development Office, AIR is thrilled to return to the UNESCO City of Music this August for its annual AIR Awards and Indie-Con Australia Conference.

Minister for Arts, Andrea Michaels MP said: “The Malinauskas Government is proud to support the AIR Awards and Indie-Con Australia Conference. It is fantastic to be hosting the awards here in Adelaide again – Australia’s only UNESCO City of Music – and I congratulate all of the nominees. It’s a wonderful opportunity to recognise the work the independent music industry does in providing talented and emerging artists and music businesses with a platform to share their art with a wider audience.”
