The 31st Annual Australian Recording Industry Association Music Awards (generally known as ARIA Music Awards or simply The ARIAs) are a series of award ceremonies which include the 2017 ARIA Artisan Awards, ARIA Hall of Fame Awards, ARIA Fine Arts Awards and the ARIA Awards.[1][2] The ARIA Awards ceremony was held on 28 November 2017 and was broadcast from the Star Event Centre, Sydney around Australia on the Nine Network.[1] The Nine Network last broadcast the awards in 2013.[3][4]

Final nominees were announced on 10 October 2017 at the Art Gallery of New South Wales.[1] ARIA also held the award ceremonies for both Artisan Awards winners and Fine Arts Awards winners at that time.[1][5][6] Gang of Youths won four of eight nominations, while Paul Kelly won four from seven.[2][6][7] The ARIA Awards ceremony introduced a new category: ARIA Music Teacher of the Year Award, which is publicly voted.[1][5] The category is open to any teacher working in a school, kindergarten, early childhood centre, youth centre or private tuition music school running a music program around the country.[8] Daryl Braithwaite was inducted into the Hall of Fame as a solo artist; his band, Sherbet, was admitted to the hall in 1990.
