The ARIAs are pulling out all the stops this year to celebrate 30 years of the Australian music awards.

On awards night in November, performances from current and iconic artists can be expected in both Australia and from around the world.

In 1987, the first awards ceremony was presented by Elton John with John Farnham, INXS and Crowded House all scooping awards.

It's been a massive year for Australian musicians with artists including Flume, Sia, Troye Sivan and The Avalanches featuring on charts internationally and at home.

In Australia, local artists including Hilltop Hoods, Delta Goodrem, Flume, Keith Urban, Sia and The Avalanches have had a big year taking out 19 number one slots over the past year.

Alongside the ceremony itself, 30 performances will take place across NSW for the fifth return of ARIA Week.

*The ARIA Awards will take place at The Star, Sydney on Wednesday, November 23.
