ARIA Charts

ARIA Charts

The ARIA charts are the main Australian music sales charts, issued weekly by the Australian Recording Industry Association. The charts are a record of the highest selling singles and albums in various genres in Australia. ARIA commenced compiling its own charts in-house from the week ending 26 June 1988. Prior to this, from mid-1983, ARIA had licensed the 'Kent Music Report' (which was later renamed as the 'Australian Music Report', until it ceased to be published in 1999).

The ARIA charts include:
*Weekly Top 100 highest selling music singles
*Weekly Top 100 highest selling music albums
*Weekly Top 40 highest selling music DVDs
*Weekly Top 50 highest selling physical singles
*Weekly Top 50 highest selling physical albums
*Weekly Top 40 highest selling digital tracks
*Weekly Top 40 highest selling "urban" releases
*Weekly Top 20 highest selling dance releases
*Weekly Top 20 highest selling country releases
*Weekly Top 50 highest DJ spins by registered DJs
*Yearly Top 100 End of Year charts profiling the year in music

The charts are published on the ARIA Chart website each Sunday night after 6:00pm, in order for printed release on the Monday. Each chart is dated according to the Monday of the given week.The first number one song of the ARIA charts era was "Kokomo" by The Beach Boys on January 8, 1989. Its current number-one is "So What" by Pink.

Formulation of charts

The ARIA charts are based on data collected from a number of traditional "bricks and mortar" [http://www.ariacharts.com.au/pages/retail_stores.htm retailers] around Australia. Both the Top 40 Digital Track Chart and the Top 100 Singles Chart include data from online retailers including iTunes and BigPond music. As of 8 October 2006, the official ARIA singles chart included online data as well as physical sales, and is now considered the "official" singles chart for the official radio countdown on NOVA.

In 2006, it was announced that the Brazin retailing group, comprising major retailers HMV, Sanity and Virgin music/DVD stores would no longer contribute sales data to the ARIA charts.

ARIA Awards

There are numerous awards and events for Australian chart topping artist and groups that include:

The ARIA No.1 Chart Awards have been an event on the Australian music industry's calendar for the past 3 years. The Awards were established in 2002 as a means of acknowledging Australian recording artists, and their record labels, who attained the coveted No.1 position on the ARIA album and singles chart

The ARIA Music Awards recognise excellence and innovation in all genres of Australian music. The very first ARIA Awards took place at Sydney's Sheraton Wentworth Hotel in front of 500 industry guests, on the 2 March 1987. Nineteen years later, the ARIAs are held in front of 2,500 industry guests, 5,000 members of the general public, and are watched by almost 2 million people via Network Ten's broadcast.

the awards are broadcast nationally on commercial TV and relayed via PAY TV to international audiences.

"The ARIAs have always been, first and foremost, a showcase for local artists across a broad range of genres, produced by ARIA record company members. They are the highlight of the Australian music industry's calendar, covering a diverse range of talent over 28 categories". Denis Handlin, Chairman of ARIA.

The ARIA Hall of Fame has been an important part of the ARIA Awards since 1988. Traditionally taking place during the ARIA Awards ceremony, a diverse range of artists have been inducted into the Hall of Fame including AC/DC, Dame Joan Sutherland, Olivia Newton-John, Johnny O'Keefe, Paul Kelly, John Farnham, INXS, Slim Dusty, Jimmy Little, Nick Cave and more.

In July 2005, ARIA staged the inaugural ARIA Icons: Hall of Fame event, which was introduced to honour the growing number of legendary performers, producers, songwriters and others who have had an impact on music culture in Australia. In the past, time constraints had prevented any more than one or two artists from being inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame at each ARIA Awards, resulting in a lengthy waiting list of worthy recipients.

While ARIA intends to maintain a Hall of Fame segment within the ARIA Awards presentation, the ARIA Icons: Hall of Fame will become an annual stand-alone event that continues to honour those whose musical achievements have had A significant impact in Australia and around the world.

ARIA certifications

A music single or album qualifies for a platinum certification if it exceeds 70,000 copies shipped to retailers and a gold certification for 35,000 copies shipped. The amount of trade sales to earn a Gold or Platinum accreditation was reduced to these amounts in 1989 after previously being 100,000 copies for platinum and 50,000 copies for gold. Originally applied to LP records, this ARIA certification is now most commonly awarded for compact disc sales and legal digital downloads.

For music DVDs (formerly videos), a Gold accreditation originally represented 7,500 copies shipped, with a Platinum accreditation representing 15,000 units shipped. In 2008, however, this was amended to create consistency amongst all accreditation. A Platinum and Gold accreditation are now the same as that appointed to compact discs/digital downloads: 70,000 and 35,000 respectively.
