Visual Arts Showcase

Visual artists are an important part of the Australian music industry and we'd like to see BIGSOUND become a place where those artists also benefit from having so many of the world's music industry in one place.

Sept 4-7


#Apply to showcase!

BIGSOUND Festival seeks 15 leading emerging artists from South East Queensland to join the Festival Design team and contribute to a precinct wide activation plan.

Splendour In The Grass Senior Creative Manager Janne Scott and renowned projection technician Lloyd Marsden head up the tutelage and will mentor selected artists to create a precinct-wide lighting, installation and projection plan to bring the Valley to life during BIGSOUND.  

You don't need any prior experience working in the festival context to join the team. Janne and industry guest speakers will facilitate a series of 3 workshops to bring you up to speed on best-practice in festival production design, site-specific design, and materials and construction. The workshop phase will be used to develop your ideas, come up with new ones in collaboration with the other participants, and identify which works are feasible to move through to construction.

In addition there will opportunities to participate in a projection mapping masterclass, a weaving workshop and a large scale group project. 

This is a rare opportunity to learn from the best, and get your work in front of music festival directors from around the world.

Applications close May 20
