Public Events

BIGSOUND offers something for everyone, view our array of free public events thanks to our partners Ableton, JMC Academy and Nod Pods.

#Ableton Masterclasses

Ableton presents two free 1-hour masterclasses covering the songwriting process and making the leap from the studio to the stage.

Beatrice (Haiku Hands, Kardajala Kirridarra) dives into one of the songs from her debut EP and shares some of the techniques she employed in Ableton Live to build the track, while Paces will demonstrate his approach to building a live show in Ableton Live, including insights into the challenges he’s faced with translating his studio projects to the stage and how he’s overcome them.

No booking required, first in best dressed.

#JMC Academy

Visit JMC Academy at BIGSOUND Social Hub to immerse yourself in Songwriting, production techniques and new music. 

JMC Academy staff and students present a range of practical sessions for BIGSOUND delegates and members of the public focusing on Songwriting, recording and music technology. Drop in at any time throughout the conference to track new ideas and try out sounds on a range of gear, plus hear about the performance and production courses at JMC Academy Brisbane or book a one-on-one workshop session below.

#Nod Pods Pop-Up

Come and checkout the latest in innovation at the Nod Pods Pop-Up in the BIGSOUND Social Hub.

Nod Pods will change the expectations of all festival goes when it comes to onsite camping. Nod Pods offer portable fully collapsible accommodation, pairing the convenience of staying close to the action with the comforts of your own home; including alternating 240V & Solar power options, air-conditioning/heating, phone charging, secure lock up, bunks, double beds and more.

To show exactly how comfortable the accommodation is we have teamed with the band we believe will leave BIGSOUND with as much buzz as we will. The band will be living in our very first Nod Pod within the BIGSOUND Social Hub.
