Chrissy Amphlett announced as The Age Music Victoria 2018 Hall Of Fame Inductee

Co-presented by vital community radio stations Triple R 102.7FM and PBS 106.7FM, The Age Music Victoria Awards 2018 will take over their new home at Melbourne Recital Centre on Wednesday 21 November as part of Melbourne Music Week. Performing live this year are Baker Boy, Mildlife, Evelyn Ida Morris, Sampa The Great and Angie McMahon who will be performing their own standout tracks from the past 12 months. Hosted by beloved radio presenters Lyndelle Wilkinson and Chris Gill.

Each year, The Awards are proud to induct local legends into The Age Music Victoria Awards Hall of Fame, recognising significant contributions to Victorian music and a commitment to sustaining the unique cultural fabric of our state. In 2018, The Age and Music Victoria are proud to announce the induction of Divinyls frontwoman and Victorian legend Chrissy Amphlett, after recently inducting Molly Meldrum at his statue unveiling in Richmond.

The induction will be accompanied by a special performance from Ella Hooper with Dallas Frasca and speech from Little Pattie. Chrissy and Molly’s Hall of Fame entries join past inductee’s Triple R 102.7FM, John Farnham, AC/DC, Olivia Newton John, Archie Roach, Paul Kelly just to name a few.

"Chrissy has a Melbourne city street named after her and a mural in her hometown of Geelong, and it’s about time she was inducted into the Age Music Victoria Hall of Fame," said Music Victoria CEO Patrick Donovan. "While she may have left us five years ago, her influence lives on in acts such as Amyl and the Sniffers, Ella Hooper and Dallas Frasca."
