BIGSOUND - the largest music industry gathering on this side of the planet - has unveiled the full First Nations Goolwal Goolwal program for 2023. From September 5-8, the program will help facilitate spaces for First Nations music, dialogues, community and connection across the event.
Curated by Goolwal Goolwal Cultural Lead Dan Rennie and BIGSOUND First Nations Music Officer Sue Ray, and guided by Elder In Residence Uncle Kev Starkey, the program weaves a thought-provoking and essential Indigenous-led program of discussions, forums, networking events and of course music.
“BIGSOUND 2023 promises to deliver the most diverse and inclusive program to date, embodying a sense of unity and inspiration and providing a culturally safe space for all attendees. Our lineup of Artists represents an extraordinary blend of cultures and genres, with First Nations-led discussions providing a platform for increased visibility and recognition of talent and for deepening understanding and cultural insights,” says Rennie.
