A couple weeks ago, Fresh had the opportunity to attend the 2017 annual AIR Awards. The AIR Awards celebrate and recognise some of the best and brightest independent artists around Australia and have been running since 2006. It’s an opportunity to showcase the talent and success of independent Australian artists. Adelaide is also lucky enough to host the 2018 AIR Awards next year too!

This week on Wavelength, Holly had a chat with some winners, like A.B. Original, Friendships and Violent Soho about the awards night as well as what they thought about being independent artists.

There’s a lot of respect and support between all of the artists, and they’re happy for each other’s successes. To hear what they have to say, have a listen below.

Catch Wavelength every Monday night, 6-7pm on Fresh 92.7.
