Canberra Nominees Announced For The National Live Music Awards


I know it, you know it, we all know it: Canberra’s live music scene is on the up and up and it’s not stopping anytime soon. Despite a lack of live performance venues in the Capital and some worrying confusion on the future of others, Canberra bands have proven to everyone around Australia that they’re here to fight for their local music scene.

One group we’ve proven the validity of Canberra music to is the National Live Music Awards. Focussing on state of Australia individually, the NLMAs think Aussie musicians are worth rewarding for their live craft, and we tend to agree!
