Next weekend’s Australian Commercial Radio Awards (ACRAs), to be held at Jupiters on the Gold Coast, will feature a line-up of well-known Australian stars as entertainment.

Australian songstress, Natalie Bassingthwaighte, will perform her new single, “All We Have”.   Singer, Stan Walker will perform his hit single, “Light It Up” and well-known, Australian group, Sneaky Sound System, will perform a song from their new album.

Chief executive officer of Commercial Radio Australian, Joan Warner, said the radio industry was a big supporter of Australian music. “It is fantastic to be able to feature some of our great Australian talent at the ACRAs and we look forward to some great entertainment.”

Also performing at the ACRAs will be one of the winners of this year’s New Artist 2 Radio (NA2R) showcase, the commercial radio industry’s competition to discover unsigned, independent music artists for commercial radio. The performance will be decided between Gold Coast band, Nine Sons of Dan and Sydney-based pop singer, Danielle Blakey.

The 23rd annual ACRAs, to be held on October 15, is a highlight of the radio industry’s yearly calendar, attracting radio personalities and stars from around Australia.

The event will be hosted by US Emmy Award winning actor, Kelsey Grammer along with Sydney breakfast radio announcer, WSFM’s Amanda Keller.

Presenters at the ACRAs will include Nova’s new breakfast team, Fitzy and Wippa (Ryan Fitzgerald and Michael Wipfli), 2GB’s Ray Hadley, Hot Tomato’s Holmesy and Flan (Paul Holmes and Sean Flanagan), Brisbane’s 97.3 fm's Robin, Terry & Bob (Robin Baily, Terry Hanson and Bob Gallagher), 3AW’s Neil Mitchell, 2Day FM’s Kyle and Jackie O and Olympian, Grant Hackett.

Organised by Commercial Radio Australia, on behalf of the radio industry, the ACRAs include 33 categories, which cover all areas of radio broadcasting including news, talk, sport, music and entertainment. The Awards differ from television’s Logie Awards, in that they are peer judged with judging panels comprised of industry members. Winners are announced in each category across three areas: metropolitan, provincial and country commercial radio stations.
