An in-person awards event? In this economy?

You better believe it, folks. The 2022 ARIA Awards are back with their first live event since 2019 to celebrate the biggest night in Australian music; it’ll be kicking off from 7:30pm at The Hordern Pavilion on Gadigal land. 

Pop princess Natalie Imbruglia is hosting tonight’s awards, along with Aussie music icons G-Flip and Ruel. Award presenters include Ayesha Madon, Becca Hatch, Briggs, Genesis Owusu, Illy, Jerome Farah, Josh Teskey, Kye, Lime Cordiale, Matt Gudinski, Montaigne, Peking Duk, Peter Garrett, Ruel, The Wiggles, Tones And I, Troy Cassar-Daley, Vera Blue, and more.

And what’s an awards night without a red carpet? Here’s a running list of the best looks we’ve spotted on the 2022 ARIAs red carpet so far.

Not sure if I’m imagining things as a fellow Korean-Australian, but it’s giving me hanbok vibes? Either way, stunning.
