The north coast music industry’s Dolphin Awards have re-invigorated themselves and this year the Dolphins have attracted big names in to judge such as Robbie Buck (JJJ and ABC Radio National), Tex Perkins, Dean Sutherland (Skunk Hour), Ash Grunwald, Bianca Lindstrom (worked with Sony BMG music), and Sam Cutler (worked with the Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Eric Clapton and more).

The record-breaking final count for this year is a whopping 434 entries from 119 musicians/bands across the region with 54 judges adjudicating 21 categories including Best Music Video. The Song of the Year category attracted a huge response with 61 entries in total. The hardest to judge has been the 31 albums of the year.

The awards night is set to be an excellent night of entertainment with eight of the best acts performing on the night. There will be the suspense of finding out who the winners are and some of the prizes on offer are outstanding with five days’ studio time, a national advertising campaign with mentorship, as well as cash prizes to mention a few.

So be part of the twentieth year of the Dolphins on Tuesday 4 December at the Star Court in Lismore. 7.15pm. For tickets phone 6622 5005 or go to www.starcourttheatre.com.au.
