THE AGE MUSIC VICTORIA AWARDS 2017 
AFTER PARTY LINE-UP 

Gold Class

Gold Class

It’s back! The 12th annual The Age Music Victoria Awards event, part of Melbourne Music Week, the Awards will conclude with The After Party – a massive showcase of Victoria’s diverse musical talent.
 


Featuring live sets from recent Glastonbury-goers Harvey Sutherland & Bermuda, local post-punks Gold Class, and rising powerhouse trio Cable Ties, The official After Party is a chance for all awardees, nominees, music industry professionals and fans alike to come together on the dance floor and celebrate the breadth of Victoria’s thriving music community.

As tradition goes, the evening will also include the famous EG Allstars Band (featuring members of the Rockwiz Orchestra) performing some of the best songs of the year fronted by a prime cut of rotating musical talent including Josh Teskey (The Teskey Brothers), Archie Roach, Gretta Ray, Ella Thompson (GL), Michelle Nicolle, Birdz, Mojo Juju and Jim Lawrie (Performing Big Smoke), as well as DJ sets by MzRizk.

This year, Music Victoria and The Age are proud to induct renowned producer, sound engineer, and three-time ARIA award-winner Tony Cohen into The Age Music Victoria Hall Of Fame. The late, great Tony Cohen worked with some of Australia’s most prolific acts on some of the country’s best records including Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, The Birthday Party, The Go Betweens, Hunters and Collectors, Models, The Moodists, TISM, Paul Kelly, Kim Salmon and the Surrealists, Dave Graney ‘n’ Coral Snakes, Tex Perkins and more. In 1994 Cohen won an ARIA for Producer of the Year for The Cruel Sea’s album The Honeymoon Is Over, and picked up both Producer of the Year and Engineer of the Year at the 1995 ARIA Awards.

Once again, $5 from every ticket sold at this year’s Awards will be donated to The Age Music Victoria’s charity partner Support Act Limited, which has received almost $50,000 from the event over the last ten years. Tickets are on sale now, and after last year’s sold out event; it’d be best not to sleep on it.
