Proudly presented by Channel [V], NOVA, and MySpace, the fifth Annual JAGERMEISTER INDEPENDENT MUSIC AWARDS (formally known as the Jagermeister AIR Awards) will be held on Friday October 1st at The Forum Theatre in Melbourne.
The event is a rare opportunity to join great Australian Musicians and the Industry at large, as they celebrate success with the Award winners, and enjoy performances by some of the country’s most sought after artists.
The JAGERMEISTER INDEPENDENT MUSIC AWARDS are Australia’s only official independent music awards, rewarding the country’s highest achieving independent artists across all genres, in any given year.
Awards to be presented during the evening include Best Independent Dance / Electronic Release, Best Independent Artist, Best Independent Hip Hop/Urban Release and Best Independent Hard Rock/Punk Release among others, with a number of high profile special guest presenters on hand to help with proceedings.
We are proud to announce local talent Sia Furler, souful jazz-styled pop singer of Adelaide, is also nominated with 3 awards for Best Independent Artist, Best Independent Album, and Best Independent Single or EP. Sia was voted in the list for Most Popular Independent Artist (as voted by Nova listeners).
Now in their fifth year, The JAGERMEISTER INDEPENDENT MUSIC AWARDS continue to grow and are now recognised as a barometer for future ‘big’ acts. Previous winners include Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu, The Hilltop Hoods, The Herd, Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Gotye, British India, Sneaky Sound System and John Butler, many of whom have gone on to major commercial and critical success subsequently.
