The nominees for the publicly-voted The Age Music Victoria Awards 2014 were announced last night at an industry event at The Age Media House.

The announcement of the nominees for the publicly voted The Age Music Victoria Awards came after the presentation of the 11 specialist genre awards. The winners of the public-voted categories will be announced along with the induction of Daddy Cool and the late music journalist Ed Nimmervoll to the Age Music Victoria Hall of Fame at a sold-out event at 170 Russell on Wednesday 19th November.

The event falling within the timing of Melbourne Music Week and Daddy Cool's induction into the hall of fame will create a fitting occasion to proudly celebrate Victoria's diverse music culture.”
