The 2023 Brit Awards Are Here, and Here’s Everything You Need to Know


Another week, another award show!

That’s right, the Brit Awards 2023 are right around the corner, returning to the London’s O2 Arena.

The big night brings out some of the biggest names in the industry to honour the best in British music. 

Last year, it was Adele who stole the show, taking home three coveted awards for Best Song, Best British Artist, and Best British Album for 30. On top of that, there were plenty of powerhouse performances, with Ed Sheeran, Dave and Little Simz just being a few of the names to take the stage.

But what’s in store for the 2023 Brit Awards? Well, a whole lot of Harry Styles, of course. Aside from Harry, here’s everything you need to know about the Brits.

What Time Are the 2023 Brit Awards in Australia?

The 2023 Brit Awards will kick off at 7.30am on Sunday, 12 February for us Australians.

How to Watch the 2023 Brit Awards

The awards are being aired on a British TV channel, making it almost impossible to tune in live outside of the UK.

However, videos of the ceremony will be uploaded the Brits YouTube Channel, which can be streamed from anywhere in the world.

A star-studded line up of performers have been announced for the big night, and when we said the night was going to be full of Harry Styles, and we weren’t joking.
