It’s that time of year again friends. That’s right, aside from being the time of year where you spend the rest of the months left debating over who’s album was better, Jamie XX or Tame Impala etc etc, it’s also awards time.

And our good friends over at Sydney’s cultural tastemaker radio station FBi Radio have just announced the nominees for their annual SMAC Awards for 2015.

Running since 2008, the SMAC Awards have celebrated the best and brightest when it comes to Sydney based music, arts and culture. Spread across 11 categories, the nominees are ones that work hard to keep Sydney’s proverbial heart beating each day.

Public voting opens today (Nov 18) and will close on 5pm, December 18, and the winners will be announced at a private ceremony on Tuesday, January 12. You can check out more info here.

We’re so stoked to not only be part of this incredible station, but to also say that our good friend and long time PS guy Moonbase Commander is nominated for the FBi Click award for Best Producer. Huge news!

FBi are doing things a little differently this year too. As part of Sydney Festival, they’re going to be running a public festival on January, 10 at Carriageworks with the help of some of their favourite Sydney acts such as Cosmo’s Midnight, Black Vanilla, Palms and Fishing. Tickets are on sale now and you can grab them from here.
