Each year, awards are handed out to industry nominated entries covering all genres. From Country, to comedy, to singles and albums, it’s the one time of the year that the Australian music industry can be praised.
However, the quality has slowly degraded. Probably because music tastes evolve and the internet has become more of a public vocal area. Last year, the event was lambasted for being hosted on the Sydney Opera House steps.
Fingers crossed, this year will be an improvement.
The official ARIA Youtube page has uploaded 3 previous awards in full. So if you have about 7 hours to kill, you can compare the decades of content.
