National Live Music Awards date and host cities announced

The second annual National Live Music Awards will be held on December 7, with a national gala event in Melbourne.

The gala event will feature awards handed out for national and Victorian recognition, alongside special performances and a keynote speech.

Simultaneous events will again be held in Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane and Adelaide, which will see the local State and Territory Awards handed out alongside a slew of performances and DJ sets.

Launceston, Alice Springs and Fremantle will be host cities for the first time. That’s eight events, in eight states and territories, all on the same night.

The inaugural NLMAs took place in November 2016, with Ngaiire taking out three awards on the night, including Live Voice of the Year.

The Smith Street Band won Live Act of the Year, while events Dark Mofo and the St Jerome’s Laneway Festival walked away with multiple trophies.
