With just seven weeks until the 2016 ARIA Awards Presented By Telstra, the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) has announced the nominees in all categories, with the winners to be announced at The Star, Sydney on Wednesday 23 November 2016.

This year, the ARIA stage will feature live performances, unforgettable collaborations, special guest appearances and a very worthy induction of Crowded House into the ARIA Hall Of Fame – the band having come full circle since receiving the very first ARIA Award ever presented for Best Video. ARIA is honoured that Crowded House founding member Nick Seymour has created the captivating commemorative artwork for 2016.

At the ARIA Nominations Ceremony, ARIA Awards were presented to the recipients of three ARIA Artisan Award categories (Producer Of The Year, Engineer Of The Year and Best Cover Art) and four ARIA Fine Arts Awards categories (Best World Music Album, Best Jazz Album, Best Classical Album and Best Original Soundtrack/Cast/Show Album) and Best Comedy Release at the Nominations Event .

Highlights of the ceremony included Flume adding to his ARIA Award collection by winning all three Artisan ARIA Awards for Producer Of The Year, Engineer Of The Year (with Eric Dubowsky) and Best Cover Art (Jonathan Zawada) for his #1 ARIA album, “Skin”. He is also in line for eight ARIA Awards at the ARIAs on 23 November, making him the most highly nominated artist of 2016.
