BIGSOUND will forge ahead against a backdrop of a global pandemic that has caused economic destruction and hamstrung Australia’s entire live music sector costing the income, jobs and livelihoods of many.
Now more than ever our national music industry needs to connect and talk about where we are heading as an industry both domestically and on the international front.
BIGSOUND has always recognised its responsibility to share ideas, conversations, networks and facilitate critical dialogue about the future of the music industry. At the heart of BIGSOUND is a networking event built by the engagement and participation of the Australian music industry. This year we aim to connect and network digitally in this new era of how we conduct business.
This year BIGSOUND will connect the Australian music community to get a better understanding of what’s ahead for our industry in the current and post-COVID era. It aims to stimulate discussion, allow participants to identify new ways of thinking about and doing business and achieve a better understanding of what’s ahead.
BIGSOUND has a commitment to promote and increase the representation of First Nations artists on and off their platform. Supporting Indigenous stories through song and reflecting who we are as Australians is of great importance to BIGSOUND 2020.
