Mia Rodriguez and Tash Sultana have been announced as musical performers for the upcoming Sailor Jerry Rolling Stone Australia Awards. 

The evening, which will grace The Argyle in Sydney on Wednesday, March 31st, is set to be a celebration of the brightest names in Australian music.

The event will feature a broad range of genres represented across five awards categories: Best Record, Best Single, Best New Artist, Rolling Stone Global Award, and the Rolling Stone Reader’s Award.

The Global Award is set to be judged by Rolling Stone’s global staff members. It’s there chance to celebrate the Australian musician they just can’t get enough of. They’ll have an arduous task ahead of them in trying to pick a winner from a list of legends that include 5 Seconds Of Summer, Keith Urban, Tame Impala, Tash Sultana, The Kid LAROI, Tones And I, Troye Sivan, and Sia.

Leading the way in nominations is Perth’s Tame Impala, the Tone Deaf favourite from Perth who is up for three Rolling Stone Australia Awards including Best Record for their fourth album, The Slow Rush.

Also in the mix for a big night is indie-pop artist E^ST, genre chameleon Tkay Maidza, sibling duo Lime Cordiale, global pop icon Sia, hip-hop export The Kid LAROI, and psych-rock “one person band” Tash Sultana, all of whom have two nominations each.

The Sailor Jerry Rolling Stone Australia Awards will see musical performances from Mia Rodriguez and Tash Sultana. Mia has been on a path to complete pop domination since signing to City Pop Records in late 2019.

Meanwhile, upcoming Rolling Stone Australia cover artist Tash Sultana will deliver a searing exclusive performance, having released their highly-anticipated second album – Terra Firma – on Friday.

Your favourite larrikin duo, Ben & Liam, will play MC for the evening. Currently serving as the hosts of the Nova Breakfast show, the pair’s long-lasting friendship and natural rapport have seen them cut their teeth as an iconic hosting duo on triple j’s Breakfast program, to returning to their hometown of Adelaide to take up the coveted breakfast slot.

While the inaugural Sailor Jerry Rolling Stone Australia Awards are set to take place at The Argyle in Sydney, on Wednesday, March 31st in an invite-only event, the nominees for the awards were announced last month, with full details available below.
