BIGSOUND continues to cement its place on Australia’s cultural calendar as the place where future stars are uncovered, and the shape of future business is forged.
BIGSOUND Festival runs four nights across Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley, showcasing the next big thing to fans, industry, and international tastemakers alike. Its massive artist line-up has been instrumental in uncovering names like Flume, Rufus, Courtney Barnett, Megan Washington, The Temper Trap, A.B. Original, Remi, Gang of Youths and more.
By day, BIGSOUND’s presents an invaluable opportunity to meet new collaborators and learn from the best from around the world. The conference program presents ideas from some of the international music industry’s most revered and forward-thinking luminaries. Delegates have heard from and rubbed shoulders with the likes of Nick Cave, Neil Finn, Kim Gordon, Simon Raymonde (Bella Union / Cocteau Twins), Billy Bragg, Amanda Palmer, Peter Garrett, Michael Gudinski (Mushroom), Ben Lee, Seymore Stein (Sire), Michael Chugg, and Steve Earle. You never know who you will meet.
