The 2015 Carlton Dry AIR Awards were held on Thursday night, showcasing the best of the best of Australia’s independent musicians and record labels. It was a fabulous night, hosted by the very funny Dylan Lewis who ensured we all got totally drunk and had a rad time.

The big winners of the evening included Courtney Barnett scoring 3 gongs including Best Independent Artist, #1 Dads won Breakthrough Independent Artist of the Year, Seth Sentry won Best Independent Hip Hop Album and Milk Records walked away with the Best Independent Label award.

We were also delighted by some great performances by Airling, Dead Letter Circus, John Butler Trio, Bad//Dreams and Harts.
