Cub Sport

Win ARIA Emerging Artist Scholarship

Exciting new for Brisbane four-piece Cub Sport who have been named the first-ever recipients of the ARIA Emerging Artist Scholarship!

Courtesy of Virgin Australia, Cub Sport will receive travel support for both domestic and international legs of their 2018 world tour.

The Scholarship focuses on helping emerging artists take the next step in their local and global touring career and was open to any Australian artist (represented by a current ARIA member) that appeared in the ARIA Top 100 Albums or Singles Chart during the 2017 calendar year and had not been previously nominated for an ARIA Award.

“We would like to thank ARIA and Virgin Australia for this opportunity. The costs associated with touring both domestically and internationally are significant and can be the limiting factor in many independent bands’ careers. This travel support will play a direct and pivotal role in allowing us to continue pursuing our global vision by returning to international markets to play shows, connect with fans as well as expanding our creative and professional network”

I would like to thank Virgin Australia for their support and contribution which will assist in developing the band’s career and help them take their music to the world.”

Dan Rosen
Chief Executive ARIA

“Virgin has a long and rich history with music, and at Virgin Australia we’re excited to support emerging Australian artists like Cub Sport, develop their careers by showcasing their talents to Australia and the world”.
