Aria awards 2016: Flume dominates with 11 nominations

Troye Sivan, Sia, Illy and the Avalanches win six nods each as King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard, RÜFÜS and Violent Soho pick up five

The Australian electronic producer Harley Streten, best known as Flume, has swept the nominations for the 2016 Aria awards, shortlisted for 11 categories in total – and already winning in three.

Flume’s second album, Skin, which he is touring through the US and Europe, won in all three artisan categories on Wednesday: best producer, engineer and cover art of the year. Appearing over video message, he also announced that he will be performing at the November ceremony, where he will be competing for the night’s top awards – including album of the year, best male artist, best dance release and the Apple Music song of the year – a new category voted for by Apple Music subscribers.
