The final five acts who have made the shortlist of The Coopers Amp were revealed tonight at the Amp Alive event at Federation Square.

The $30,000 album prize has added:

Liz StringerWarm In The Darkness
Daily MedsHappy Daze

They join the previously announced:

Grand Salvo Slay Me In My Sleep
Jess Ribeirio & The Bone Collectors
My Little River

Urthboy Smokey's Haunt

The winner of the PPCA-donated cash prize will be announced March.

Prize Director Scott Murphy today thanked the judges, who whittled a 71-strong longlist into the final nine.

He said, “The feedback from the judges favours the new entry/judging system that we put into place in 2012. The judges all fully support all nine titles making this shortlist and have stressed to me that there were in fact many more titles that they were individually passionate about but that obviously couldn't be squeezed in – of note, albums by these artists narrowly missed the final cut: Alpine, Bearhug, Bored Nothing, Dirty Three, Pataphysics and Sarah Blasko.”

The Amp Alive event was hosted by Clare Bowditch and Kevin Mitchell.
