The National Indigenous Music Awards are pleased to announce that Australia’s biggest virtual celebration of Australian First Nations talent will proceed on August 8 across TV, radio and online, ensuring that all Australians can join in. Host TV broadcaster NITV will join with radio and online partners to create a unique presentation live from Darwin, Larrakia Country and locations across Australia, with iconic artist performances both at home and on-country and of course the presentation of 2020’s NIMAs acknowledging success and excellence from across the community.
Viewers will be encouraged to join in on social media and will contribute to the event live, bringing the country together in an ambitious production, letting the NIMA stars shine in every community. Nominations for this year’s awards close this Friday with all songs and albums released before May 31 by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people eligible.
