The 2024 ARIA Awards will be televised on Wednesday, 20 November, and will be held for a third year running at Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion.

The event, which will be held in partnership with YouTube and coincides with the venue's 100th birthday, will celebrate 38 years of awards and big moments.

This year’s ARIA Awards will premiere live on Stan before a special television presentation airs on Channel 9. Meanwhile, the official ARIA YouTube channel will feature performances and other moments on-demand.

After the official live stream airs, the awards will be available to watch on-demand on Stan, and YouTube will exclusively premiere the red carpet and then showcase this year’s ARIA Awards to an international audience.

Last year’s ARIA Awards saw pop music megastar Troye Sivan sweep up four awards, while Genesis Owusu won the coveted Album of the Year, G Flip and Forest Claudette took home two awards each, Kylie Minogue won the Pop Music Release award, and, of course, Jet were inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame.

Stay tuned for this year’s award nominees and Hall of Fame announcement.

In a statement, ARIA CEO Annabelle Herd said, “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 Pavilion. We’re also tremendously grateful to all our partners and everyone involved in helping us give Australian music a global platform.”

The New South Wales Minister for the Arts, Minister for Music and the Night-time Economy (as well as Minister for Jobs and Tourism), John Graham, commented that he’s “delighted” to see the awards returning to the Hordern Pavilion.

Graham continued, “NSW is already the nation’s capital for recorded music, but we want to elevate the industry’s role in our state’s story, which the ARIA Awards do each year by showcasing our world-class talent. I want to thank ARIA for their advocacy for the industry and for allowing our state to be part of that work.”

Melanie Silva, Google Australia's vice president, said on behalf of YouTube, “There's never been a more important time to spotlight Australian artists and their impact on the global stage. We are so incredibly proud to partner with the ARIA Awards for a sixth year and to help showcase the incredible music coming out of our country.”

Adding that YouTube has become the place where music fans “discover the sounds they love,” Silva said that the company is “honoured” to amplify artists’ voices and give them an essential platform. Silva added, “I hope everyone is as excited as I am to tune in on November 20 as we celebrate the best of Australian music and stream the red carpet glamour live on YouTube.”
