The only difference this year is that we are just celebrating Victorian music now – of all genres. It is still the people's awards – fans can vote for their favourite music of the year, and buy a ticket to the Billboard show to rub shoulders with their heroes, see them perform and cheer for them as they take home a trophy."

 

3RRR Station Manager, Dave Houchin, said "3RRR 102.7FM is very proud to be presenting The Age Music Victoria Awards in 2013. Music Victoria's involvement, the introduction of the genre awards, the Soul Revue format hosted by Triple R's own Chris Gill, and the induction of Renιe Geyer into the Hall of Fame are exciting developments for 2013 and will create a fitting occasion to proudly celebrate Victoria's diverse music culture."
