Here are all the winners of the 2022 ARIA Awards, led by Baker Boy

Others who took home trophies include Amyl and the Sniffers, The Wiggles, King Stingray and RÜFÜS DU SOL

Baker Boy emerged the big winner at the 2022 ARIA Awards, which took place Thursday (November 24) at Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion.

The Yolngu rapper won five trophies, including Album of the Year and Best Solo Artist (a gender-neutral category which was introduced last year). Others with multiple wins were Amyl and the Sniffers, with Best Group and Best Rock Album, and The Wiggles, with Best Children’s Album and Best Australian Live Act presented by Heaps Normal.

Natalie Imbruglia was on hosting duties alongside G Flip and Ruel (who stepped in after Lewis Capaldi dropped out), and the night saw performances by Baker Boy, Flume and MAY-A, Vance Joy, Amyl and the Sniffers, and more.

This year’s ARIA Awards also honoured three titans of Australia’s music industry who passed away this year. Tones and I, Imbruglia, KYE and Peking Duk closed out the ceremony with a performance of some of Olivia Newton-John‘s most beloved hits. Budjerah, Jessica Mauboy and Thelma Plum performed Uncle Archie Roach’s Best Independent Release-winning ‘One Song’, while Casey Donovan and Dami Im covered Judith Durham.

Leading this year’s nominations were electronic powerhouses RÜFÜS DU SOL, who won just one of the seven categories they were nominated in (Producer – Best Produced Album). Flume, who had six noms, and Gang of Youths, who had four, walked away empty-handed. Other winners include Julia Jacklin, who won Best Adult Contemporary Album with ‘Pre Pleasure’, and King Stingray, who were named Michael Gudinski Breakthrough Artist, and Tones And I, who snagged Song Of The Year for ‘Cloudy Day’.
