2024 ARIA Awards Announce Date, Venue

The 2024 ARIA Awards will be staged at Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion for a third successive year, and is set for Nov. 20.

The Australian record industry’s flagship awards ceremony, now entering its 38th edition, also welcomes the return of streaming partner YouTube and live-to-air broadcaster Channel 9, which will beam out a “special presentation” on the night.

The ceremony will premiere live only on Stan, followed by the Channel 9 package, with performances and moments available on-demand on the ARIA YouTube channel. Also, YouTube will exclusively live stream the red carpet and the awards.                                 

“Since 1987,” comments ARIA CEO Annabelle Herd, “the ARIA Awards have represented the pinnacle of achievement in Australian music. The past year has seen a huge number of homegrown Aussie talent making their mark locally and globally and we’re very excited to celebrate these achievements,” she continues.

The Hordern at Sydney’s Entertainment Quarter is one of Australia’s most iconic mid-size venues, one that, this year, celebrates its 100th anniversary.

From its grand opening in 1924 until 1983 (when the now demolished Sydney Entertainment Centre first opened its doors), the Hordern, with its 5,500-capacity, was the largest indoor venue in the country’s biggest city. Its reputation for hosting top-shelf concerts remains very much intact, with the likes of David Bowie, AC/DC, INXS and many others filling the room.

“NSW is already the nation’s capital for recorded music but we want to elevate the industry’s role in our state’s story, which the ARIA Awards do each year by showcasing our world-class talent,” explains minister for the arts, minister for music and the night-time economy and minister for jobs and tourism, John Graham.

“I want to thank ARIA for their advocacy for the industry and for allowing our state to be part of that work.”

Destination NSW, the agency that supports the growth of tourism and events across the state, has struck a renewed partnership as strategic sponsor for the ARIAs.

Adds Melanie Silva, VP at Google Australia: “There’s never been a more important time to spotlight Australian artists and their impact on the global stage.”

The 2024 ARIA Awards event team is led by Roving Enterprises (production), and includes executive producer Craig Campbell and event producers Second Sunday. Twofold Media handles PR and red carpet, and White Noise Agency is tasked with sponsorship. That behind-the-scenes team presented last year’s show, widely credited as one of the best in recent memory.

Performers, nominations, hosts and presenters for the 2024 edition will be announced in due course.
