ARIA Music Awards of 1988


ARIA Music Awards of 1988

The 2nd Australian Recording Industry Association Music Awards (generally known as the ARIA Music Awards or simply The ARIAS) was held on March 29, 1988 at the Sheraton Wentworth Hotel in Sydney. Cliff Richard was the host of the event. There were no formal nominations for the awards, hence only winners are listed. The awards were not televised. Bryan Ferry, Feargal Sharkey and Molly Meldrum were among the presenters.

Some significant changes were made for the 2nd ARIA Awards. In addition to the categories for the inaugural year, the category of "Best Children's Album" was added. The ARIA Hall of Fame was also created, with several artists being inducted, including AC/DC and Slim Dusty. Finally an "Outstanding Achievement Award" was created and first awarded to John Farnham.
