Broadcast to your home

This year Vision Australia Radio will provide a separate commentary of the nights events alongside audio description for those listening at home.


The AD commentary will extend further to painting a picture of what is happening in the space and how attendees are reacting to performances on stage. The program will air live across the Vision Australia Radio Network from 8pm in Adelaide, Perth, Melbourne and regional Victoria.
