Austin Music Awards
For 36 years, the Austin Music Awards have honored the local music community and recognized the best Austin artists, bands and industry masterminds which have forged Austin’s international music reputation. This event recognizes Austin’s outstanding live music achievements of the previous year as voted on by the Austin Chronicle readers in the annual Austin Chronicle Music Poll. From its earliest years, AMA has presented numerous genres of music emanating from Texas, including rock, country, blues, Latino, folk, punk, pop, world, and classical.
Legendary performers, guests, and presenters like Robert Plant, Chrissie Hynde, Fab 5 Freddy, Terry Allen, Blondie, Bruce Springsteen and Pete Townshend have taken the stage at the Austin Music Awards to celebrate 36 years of Austin musicianship. Who will the surprise guests be this year?
Proceeds from the event benefit the Sims Foundation.
