The nominations for the 2015 South Australian Music Awards (affectionately known as the ‘SAM Awards‘, and presented by Music SA) just dropped, and some of our favourite artists were recognised for the hard work they’ve put in this year!

Tkay Maidza is nominated for literally half of the categories – which, y’know, is no big deal or anything. (That was sarcasm. It’s a very big deal, and it’s very well-deserved for a very talented, very hard-working local artist.)

Our main man Motez, our August Come Up Residents SKIES,  and Open House guest speakers Flamingo all copped nominations as well. It shows how far Adelaide’s electronic music scene has come over the last few years, and we’re super happy to see these artists get recognition like this!

The winners will be announced November 11, and there’s an afterparty involving SKIES and The Beards – details for that are below.
