After the year we've had we're looking for every opportunity to celebrate local music and the 2021 APRA Music Awards have done just that.

The awards shining the light on song writing proves we have good taste, with rock legends Cold Chisel, INXS and Midnight Oil getting nominated and Aussie favourites The Teskey Brothers, Tame Impala, DMA'S, The Rubens, Dean Lewis and Amy Shark  all being nominated, along with heaps more great Aussie talent.

The biggest gong of the night is the peer-voted APRA Song of the Year with Rob Hirst, Bunna Lawrie and Gadigal poet Joel Davison representing rock for Gadigal Land.
