#Amongst the full days of soaking up insight after insight, you can let your hair down with BIGSOUND’s official industry event program.

After announcing over 180 festival artists last month, BIGSOUND continues to turn up the volume, revealing another huge line up of game-changing industry events taking over Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley next month.

With hundreds of talented performers and the entire Australian music industry (plus our mates overseas), you’ll find hidden gems in every corner.

Come celebrate the return of an absolute institution - the Oztix BIGSOUND Party! Now in their 11th year of proudly presenting BIGSOUND, they’ve stacked the line-up with L-FRESH The Lion, VACATIONS, a secret special headliner and loads more.

Move between venues and enjoy hand-picked showcases at Industry Events from Spotify, Live Nation, Music NZ, Made in SA, Ivy League, CADA and UNIFIED x Lonely Lands. Industry Event performers include AKOSIA, Press Club, merci, mercy, Jesswar and KANADA THE LOOP – and yes, there are plenty more names to be found on the event website.

New BIGSOUND friends Brick Lane Brewing will get the good times started, presenting the official opening event, while this year’s Label Happy Hour events will include drinks, showcases and conversations thanks to The Operatives’ and Grand Trine Management, Mushroom Management, [PIAS] Australia and Inertia Music, and Sony Music Australia.

The JMC Academy Country Music Takeover offers a warm welcome to the festival’s new BIGSOUND Country arm, with The Brightside as host for the entire Wednesday night. As part of their continued support of BIGSOUND’s First Nations showcasing artists, Spotify’s Dreaming Loud Party will celebrate the continued rise of Blak electronic music. 

Dew Process invite you to celebrate their 20th birthday, with Secret Sounds once again bringing the goods for BIGSOUND’s official closing party. And there’s still more to be announced!

In addition to BIGSOUND’s spread of conference and industry mixers, over 180 of the finest emerging acts will play to hundreds of labels, publishers, agents, festival programmers, publicists and thousands of fans, all keen to discover the next big thing and the headliners of tomorrow.
