The Australian Record Labels Association is thrilled to announce the 2018 Best Independent Label nominees and a game-changing prize for this year’s winner.

Thanks to moshtix; Australia’s most trusted independent ticketing company and supporting partner of the 2018 AIR Awards, the recipient of this year’s Best Independent label award will receive a digital marketing package valued at $20,000 to help showcase their talent to the music public.


The 2018 AIR Awards Best Independent Label nominees are:

ABC Music

Milk! Records

Dot Dash Recordings

Bad Apples Music


The Best Independent Label award category was introduced in 2012 to celebrate and pay tribute to the great work that is done by our homegrown labels. To be eligible, labels need to have artists or releases nominated for awards in the given year. This forms the long list of nominees, from which AIR members vote.

Thanks to the continued support from the South Australian Government, the winner of the Best Independent Label Award will be announced at the 2018 AIR Awards on Thursday 26 July at the Queen’s Theatre, Adelaide, joining the list of previous winners Pieater, I OH YOU, Milk! Records, Future Classic and ElefantTraks.
