It is with great excitement that The Coopers Amp announces the 71 albums invited as Official Entrants to The 8th Australian Music Prize. Previously considered the ‘Long List’ The Coopers Amp has shaken things up this year by removing the entry fee and automatically considering ALL Australian releases for the prize. Those albums that the judges believe have Shortlist potential are invited to formally enter The Coopers Amp.
We're happy to say that some of the artists on the long list have been generous enough to allow us to provide a free download of their music for visitors to thecoopersamp.com.au. The downloads are very limited and we will be uploading new tracks all the time. You can get your track from our downloads page.
