BIGSOUND is back from September 3-6 in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley Live Music Precinct, with this year’s theme revealed as ‘The Artist As CEO’.
The event will acknowledge the new music industry reality where artists are now truly in the centre of the industry, making empowered creative and business choices around their music. BIGSOUND not only creates the Southern Hemisphere’s biggest new live music party, but also tools artists, managers, labels, publishers, bookers and other music professionals with knowledge, inspiration and expanded thinking around their careers.
For the first time in the event’s history, BIGSOUND will also be waving goodbye to its traditional conference home at the Judith Wright Centre and saying hello to Cloudland, providing expanded conference and meeting facilities right in the heart of the BIGSOUND Festival precinct. “Over the years, BIGSOUND has changed, with networking, workshops and other events becoming far more integral to the event, so making the move to Cloudland will give more programming flexibility as well as bringing the conference events closer to the live music that is at the heart of BIGSOUND,” said BIGSOUND Executive Programmer Maggie Collins.
Special rate purple passes for entry to the full BIGSOUND experience are on sale from today. Purple pass access is the only way to get into the BIGSOUND Hook Ups, WTF sessions and other conference events, as well as priority access to BIGSOUND Festival events (did you miss out on last year’s Paul Kelly secret show?).
