Also worth noting is that the MAMAs have increased their number of categories for awards from 19 to 26, so if you felt your thing wasn’t represented last year, you may be in luck this year.
MusicACT is proud to announce that The 2013 MAMAS are the first state/territory based music awards to recognise the diversity of Electronic Dance Music.
MusicACT have split this wide umbrella category into three separate awards:
Best ACT Bass Music Producer
Best ACT House, Electro or Techno Producer
Best ACT Psychedelic Electronic Music Producer
(Categories include their derivatives, e.g. Deep House is included in House)
Other new awards include Best Cover Band and Best Music Theatre Production, which join Best Artist, Best Youth Artist, Best Live Performer and Best Live Venue as publically voted categories. MusicACT has also expanded the merged categories so that Blues, Indie, Rock and Jazz each have their own award. This is Canberra’s music industry on an unprecedented platform.
