First 76
Acts Unveiled

Tones And I, Milan Ring, Tasman Keith, Bad//Dreems, yergurl, EGOISM, and Electric Fields lead a list of 76 artists out of what will become a total of 150 acts heading to Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley this September 3-6.

Produced by QMusic, BIGSOUND brings together over 200 of the top talent scouts from across the world, music fans from across Australia and the hottest 150 bands from across the region in a unique musical speed-dating extravaganza. It's four big nights of a choose-your-own-adventure live music discovery, where no two schedules are the same and where in previous years the lucky public have had a first look at artists including Flume, Rüfüs Du Sol, Courtney Barnett, Ocean Alley, Baker Boy, Tash Sultana, The Temper Trap, Gang of Youths, King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard, The Middle East and more.

Also for the first time, BIGSOUND opens the Artist Village, creating a sanctuary and meeting place for the 150 live performing artists at the event to relax, network and enhance their BIGSOUND experience.

The BIGSOUND Artist Village includes the option of free accommodation on a first-in-best-dressed basis, complimentary breakfast and more. The Artist Village will be open to all BIGSOUND artists from 10am until 4pm daily, including free wifi, conference live stream, artist workshops, safe zone with mental health counsellors, informal interview spaces, instrument repair store, hair and makeup salon, rehearsal room and brand networking opportunities.

“The BIGSOUND Artist Village has turned our festival up to eleven with this game-changing initiative designed to look after showcasing artists.”

Angela Samut – QMusic CEO

“The Artist Village was announced to all showcasing artists and was fully booked in 24 hours with a wait list,” Ms Samut said.  

“We look forward to welcoming BIGSOUND artists to the Village where they can relax, rehearse and with the potential to form new collaborations.”

BIGSOUND’s app has also been refreshed with a unique streaming service integration, allowing attendees to get a personalised discovery playlist from the BIGSOUND lineup based on their own favourite artists, listening history, and genre preferences.
