QLD Music

The QMAs recognise the diverse people and places that make contemporary popular music an invaluable part of our state's cultural heritage. We invite all Queenslanders to celebrate the artists, industry leaders, festivals and live music venues that keep the joy of music alive in our communities.


Making QLD
Music History

Winning a QMA is a key milestone in the career of many successful Queensland artists. Look back at the past winners of the QMAs and you'll see a host of names that have gone on to forge careers that made us proud.

The 2018 QMAs was the next evolution in the fabled history of the event. Following a wonderful three years at Brisbane Powerhouse, the awards night moved to a new gala format, courtesy of the RNA Convention Centre. We'll also recognise a more diverse group of contributors to Queensland music, including: Live Music Festival of the Year, Live Music Venue of the Year (Metro), Live Music Venue of the Year (Regional).
