Welcome to AMRA

AMRA - Australian Mustic Retailers Association

Welcome to AMRA

Australian Music Retailers Association

AMRA is the industry association for recorded music retailers.  It works to protect and further the interests of recorded music stores Australia-wide.

Many AMRA members contribute data for the ARIA Chart.

AMRA administers the industry code of practice, which provides advice about the content of an audio recording in terms of adult themes, etc. This involves taking complaints, helping to resolve them, reporting to the Commonwealth Attorney General with an annual report, and presenting to such bodies as the Australian Senate in their commitee proceedings. AMRA also works with ARIA to train the record labels and work with indie artists in how to assess an audio recording and apply the appropriate level.

AMRA stages Record Store Day in Australia which celebrates indie record stores around the world, and the wide community of musicians and music lovers who surround them. It's day of live music, DJs, food and wine and beer, more live music, limited edition specials, crate digging, and did we mention there's live music?

AMRA works with ARIA for the ARIA Retailer of the Year Awards, part of the annual ARIA Awards. Congratulations to the winners for 2016 which are: Red Eye Records in Sydney.
