It has been another year of evolution, growth and movement within the Australian music landscape. As the most recognisable acronym within the industry, ARIA has been undergoing significant changes of its own, with regards to structural and cultural development.

As the industry continues to rebuild in the wake of the pandemic, there have been so many positives about the state of play within the music industry in the last year. With a focus returning to international export, as it is about strengthening the Australian touring landscape to be more sustainable for indie and emerging artists, there is much to be excited about moving forward.

ARIA and PPCA CEO Annabelle Herd returns to BIGSOUND for an informative session that will unpack the last twelve months of action and progress, as well as an exploration into how such movements to affect cultural change will roll out as the rest of the year continues.
