Artists up for this year include Gordi, DMA’S, Tame Impala, Spacey Jane, Washington, The Kid LAROI, and Tkay Maidza. While most award winners will be selected in-house, the recipient of the Reader’s Award will be determined by the magazine’s subscribers.

The revival of the Rolling Stone Australia Awards were first announced in November, following the return of the magazine the same year.

“2020 will undoubtedly go down as one of the most trying, tumultuous years for music. But while our local music is crippled by a global pandemic, it has not stopped local artists from releasing remarkable music,” The Brag Media’s managing editor said at the time.

“To be able to celebrate that music in partnership with Sailor Jerry, our global team, and our subscribers is very exciting.”
