ARIA Awards set to return to Sydney this November

The 2024 ARIA Awards is confirmed to return to Sydney this year.

Coinciding with the iconic venue’s 100th anniversary, the annual music industry event will take place for the third year at Hordern Pavilion on Wednesday, 20 November.

The 38th ARIA Awards will also premiere live exclusively on Stan, followed by a special presentation on Channel 9.

“Since 1987, the ARIA Awards have represented the pinnacle of achievement in Australian music. The past year has seen a huge number of homegrown Aussie talent making their mark locally and globally and we’re very excited to celebrate these achievements on 20 November at the Hordern Pavillion,” ARIA CEO, Annabelle Herd, said.

“We’re also tremendously grateful to all our partners and everyone involved in helping us give Australian music a global platform.”

Stan chief content officer, Cailah Scobie, added: “Supporting local Australian talent is at the heart of our content slate and as the exclusive live streamer of the 2024 ARIA Awards for the second year running, Stan is proud to be the forum that provides millions of Australians the opportunity to celebrate our incredible music industry.

“We can’t wait to hit play on music’s night of nights with Stan being the only destination to watch the full show live and on demand.”

This year will also see the return of the Best Use of Australian Music in Advertising award for its second year, which was taken out in 2023 by Innocean Australia and Australian Marine Conservation Society in the over two minute category, while the two minutes or less gong was picked up by 72andSunny with Campfire X for Google Helping You Help Others, with music from Baker Boy.
