December 4, 2011 Leave a comment
Voting in the inaugural Radar Illawarra Music Awards has been open for around a week now, and the amount of entries we’ve gotten so far has been pretty staggering. Thanks to all who have voted so far!
We’ve spent the week finalising the details for the awards event; the plan was to hold off for a little while longer, but since you’ve all been so keen on the concept, it’s only fair that a few of the details get leaked a little early. So, without further ado, the details for the RIMAs!
Radar Illawarra would like to welcome TOMMY M & THE MASTERSOUNDS, PLACES PEOPLE and VULPES VULPES to the band lineup for the evening! All three bands have had massive years: Vulpes Vulpes were selected to play the Foreshore Festival in Canberra (alongside Gotye, Ladyhawke and Boy & Bear); Places People released his debut album, ‘Hid & Hunted’; while Tommy M have won pretty much every band comp in town. Both bands are firm Radar favourites, and will be providing just part of the musical entertainment for the night; we’ve still got a few more acts to announce, and they’re awesome!
The awards will be held at the Patch on December 17. Entry all night is FREE!
In some other exciting news, we’ve been lucky enough to have a few generous sponsors for the RIMAs, with several local businesses generously donating prizes for the winners. Laww Media are donating a $3000 film clip, Main Street Studios will give away a two-day recording package, 55ive Design have gifted us a website design worth $700, and New Millennium Trophies & Gifts will provide some special plaques and trophies for the winners. For the record, these local businesses have been outrageously generous in giving us these prizes, so a massive THANK YOU from Radar is in order!
Voting for the RIMAs is open until December 10. Click here to vote in the categories of BEST BAND, BEST SOLO ARTIST, BEST LIVE ACT, BEST VIDEO CLIP and BEST RELEASE, and help your favourites win some of the awesome prizes on offer!
