Music Events That Celebrate Our Aussie Culture

The Aria Awards were a night of glitz and glamour as home grown music legends and rising newbies strutted down the red carpet for this nationally captivating event. Amidst the local award winning acts, British sensation Robbie Williams put on a spectacular high energy performance to wow the crowds. And of course, fans saw some of their favourites claim some highly contested titles, with Empire of the Sun taking home four awards including Album of the Year, and Aria favourite, Jessica Mauboy winning for Highest Selling Single and one of the best selling albums of the year.

The Aria's are a celebration of Australia's enthusiasm and pride in its music and arts. We've produced some international recognised sensations, including Silverchair, Powderfinger and of course AC/DC. Meanwhile, we have also spawned a number of truly "Australian" music events, such as the Big Day Out and Homebake. These festivals are a celebration of the greater Australian community and demonstrate how music has the power to bring together a nation.

Big Day Out - By far the most anticipated national event of the Festival season, the Big Day Out had its debut in 1992, with headline act Violent Femmes, supported by Nirvana. Since then, the day has been taken up nationwide and is now also hosted in Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, the Gold Coast, and even Auckland. In 2010, the Big Day Out features an impressive line up including Powderfinger and Lily Allen to be headlined by Muse. Sydney will host two shows, with the first day's tickets selling out in record time. The second show will be the 100th Big Day Out celebration to take place.

Homebake - In its 15th year, Homebake is another national classic featuring an all-Australian line up and that shows why we're proud of our "homebaked" acts. Originally hosted in Byron Bay, the festival has now found its home in Sydney and is held every week in December. This year's sold out line up includes unbeatable acts such as Powderfinger, JET, and Silverchair with a special best of performance from Tim Finn. Another great reason to love home bred Australian music.

Tamworth Country Music Festival - Recognised as one of the Top 10 music festivals in the world by Forbes magazine, this festival sees the city of Tamworth open its doors to some of the most celebrated country music artists and their fans. Celebrated over 10 days, attendance numbers rival the Nashville equivalent, as over 1000 events and performances are spread across the city streets and beyond. This year's highly anticipated performers include Kasey Chambers, The Bushwakers, Cash Only and newcomer Harmony Jones performing at various venues and then meeting their fans as they line up to buy music and support their favourite acts. Some say it's where dreams come true and legends.

The list goes on and on, including Festival of the Sun, Soundwave, Blues and Roots, Good Vibrations and many, many more.

Festivals have become the beating heart and soul of Australian music culture where hardcore musos, professional musicians and casual appreciators can come together and celebrate their love for good entertainment.
