We are absolutely thrilled to announce that the 2019 ARIA Week will be presented by Mitsubishi ASX. Supporting the Australian music scene is not only super cool (who wouldn’t want to be surrounded by some absolute legends of music?!) but also brings plenty of attention and support to showcase the amazing wealth of talent we have to offer Down Under!
