ARIA Awards 2023: Check out the full list of nominations

The noms are on point

The nominations are in for the 2023 ARIA Awards, and as always, most of the best names in the music biz are in the mix.

G Flip, Matt Corby and Genesis Owusu are a few of the musicians in the running for the Album of the Year while Budjerah, Kylie Minogue and Meg Mac are three of the ten names battling it out for the Best Solo Artist award.

In fact, Kylie has four nominations – and if she were to win any of them, it would be her first in two decades. Her last ARIA win was in 2002 for Fever as the Best Pop Release and Highest Selling Album. The same year she also took home Highest Selling Single and Single of the Year for Can’t Get You Out of My Head.

Check out the full list of nominations for the 2023 ARIA awards.
