2016 ARIA nominated artists revealed

October 5, 2016

Flume leads the pack with 11 nominations.

With just seven weeks until the 2016 ARIA Awards Presented By Telstra, the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) today announced the nominees in all categories, with the winners to be announced at The Star, Sydney on Wednesday, November 23, 2016.

The 30th Anniversary of the ARIA Awards provides an opportunity for ARIA and the music industry to celebrate its incredible history, amazing artists and moments that have captured the nation’s imagination.

This year, the ARIA stage will feature stellar live performances, unforgettable collaborations, special guest appearances and a very worthy induction of Crowded House into the ARIA Hall Of Fame - the band having come full circle since receiving the very first ARIA Award ever presented for Best Video. ARIA is honoured that Crowded House founding member, Nick Seymour has created the captivating commemorative artwork for 2016.

The 2015 ARIA Awards delivered increased ratings, was the #1 show for 16-39 year olds on the night, and achieved the most social #ARIAs ever, generating 109 million Twitter impressions around the world.

ARIA Chairman and Chairman & CEO of Sony Music Entertainment Australia and New Zealand & President, Asia, Denis Handlin, AM said:

“On behalf of the ARIA Board I would like to congratulate all of the winners announced today in the Fine Arts, Artisan & Best Comedy categories, as well as those artists nominated for The 2016 ARIA Awards Presented By Telstra. All of the artists nominated in all the categories, truly demonstrate the influence and wonderful creativity of Australian music .

We look forward to a very special ARIAs, at The Star Sydney, to commemorate the successes of the past year and also to celebrate the 30 incredible years of the ARIA Awards.”

At today's ARIA Nominations Ceremony, ARIA Awards were presented to the recipients of three ARIA Artisan Award categories (Producer Of The Year, Engineer Of The Year and Best Cover Art) and four ARIA Fine Arts Awards categories (Best World Music Album, Best Jazz Album, Best Classical Album and Best Original Soundtrack/Cast/Show Album) and Best Comedy Release at the Nominations Event – they became the first of many artists to be acknowledged by their peers for their creative contributions over the last twelve months.

Highlights of the ceremony included Flume adding to his ARIA Award collection by winning all three Artisan ARIA Awards for Producer Of The Year, Engineer Of The Year (with Eric Dubowsky) and Best Cover Art (Jonathan Zawada) for his #1 ARIA album, ‘Skin’. He is also in line for a remarkable eight ARIA Awards at the ARIAs on November 23, making him the most highly nominated artist of 2016. Flume announced via video message, that featured a cameo from Best Cover Art designer, Jonathan Zawada,that he would be performing at the 30th Annual ARIA Awards.

It was also an exciting day for Flume's label-mates, Flight Facilities who won in the Best Classical Album category for ‘Flight Facilities - Live With The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra’.  Classically trained Grammy-award winning composer and violinist, Davide Rossi arranged and conducted the ARIA-Award winning album. This is the fifth time the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra has received ARIA nominations in the Best Classical Album category and ARIA congratulates them on winning the Best Classical Album ARIA Award today, 21 years since they won their first ARIA for 'Simple Gifts' with Yvonne Kenny in 1995.

ARIA congratulates ABC Music whose artists were the proud recipients of the  ARIA Awards in the remaining Fine Arts and Comedy categories. Vince Jones and Paul Grabowsky (Best Jazz Album), Josh Pyke (Best Original Soundtrack/Cast/Show Album), Nicky Bomba from Melbourne Ska Orchestra (Best World Music Album) and Roy & HG (Best Comedy Release) were at the ceremony to collect their ARIA awards and to celebrate their Award winning day.

ARIA Chief Executive Officer, Dan Rosen, added:

“2016 has been a record breaking year for Australian music with 16 Australian artists reaching the top of the ARIA Charts and the likes of Flume, Sia and Troye Sivan featuring strongly on charts and festival stages around the world. This success is celebrated today with the winners of the Fine Arts, Artisan & Best Comedy Awards and the announcement of the nominated artists for the 2016 ARIA Awards Connected By Telstra.

“Congratulations to all of the artists honoured today as winners in the Fine Arts, Artisan & Best Comedy Categories.
