After a few long years of award shows and events being cancelled, rescheduled and scaled down, things are beginning to feel like they’re getting back to normal.
This year has marked the Academy Awards‘ return to the Dolby Theatre, and the Sydney Film Festival has been able to launch its first full scale program since 2019. Closer to home, this year will mark the return of the TV Week Logie Awards, the first since 2019.
It’s an exciting time for Australian music’s night of nights, with the ARIAs set to return this November as an in-person event.
“In 2022 we are absolutely thrilled to bring the ARIA Awards back to a full-scale, television event packed with the performances, glitz, and glamour that Australian music fans know and love,” said ARIA CEO Annabelle Herd in a statement.
This year marks the fourth year of the ARIA’s partnership with YouTube, and the streaming giant will once again play host to all the red carpet and pre-show coverage in 2022.
