Voting is entirely up to the public, and of course we want you to make an educated decision. So we’ve made this playlist of all the nominees for you to enjoy, with their nominations listed below. (Aside from Dispossessed, nominated for Best Live Act, who you can get familiar with here.) Enjoy!
Which Sydney track could you not stop listening to this year? Which record did you have on repeat? Who played a live show that you’ll never forget? Which producer took you to another dimension? You decide…
