Acclaim Magazine acknowledges the Traditional Owners of this land, and we pay our respects to Elders past and present.

The Acclaim All-Stars initiative was created as a means for the fans and participants across the thriving homegrown hip-hop and R&B scene music to formally acknowledge and celebrate the next crop of emerging of Australian artists. 2023 sees the next iteration of All-Stars, our annual event showcasing who’s next up in Australia’s evergrowing music scene. All-Stars is a production of Acclaim Magazine, Australia’s longest-running media platform dedicated to hip-hop music and culture in partnership with JD Sports.
