Premier showcasing event and mass gathering of the great minds in music, BIGSOUND, today reveals its full showcase, conference and special events schedule. The 2023 event stamps its mark as the place to create change and celebrate the future of the Australian music industry, with a multi-faceted program of discovery, networking and professional development set to take place from 5-8 September in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley.
Already stacked with huge names like Mike Shinoda (Linkin Park), Christine Anu and Omar Grant (ROC Nation), BIGSOUND has added over 50 new speakers and deal-brokers, alongside the full showcase timetable and special event program.
In 2023 the conference returns to its spiritual home, Judith Wright Arts Centre (JWAC) on Brunswick Street, Fortitude Valley, where the speaking events will be held. Following redevelopment in 2019, as one of Queensland’s most dynamic arts organisations, JWAC is once again ready to swing open its to the hustle of hungry music minds.
Hundreds of incomers will gain knowledge from across the musical spectrum at BIGSOUND’s speaker events, with one of the most insightful to be from rock music legend Mike Shinoda, who will sit down with Rolling Stone AU/NZ Editor-In-Chief Poppy Reid, for the opening Keynote on Tuesday afternoon.
