Little BIGSOUND may only be in its second year, but its execution was far from amateur. Rather, the one day forum designed to assist youths aspiring to break into the music industry was fantastically programmed, bringing in a range of accomplished figures in the music industry to share their experiences and advice. Constructed to assist with a number of challenges confronting young people aiming to find a place in the industry, attendees are sure to have walked away very much the wiser.
As a vibrant, exciting and highly informative music conference that brings together a vast number of figures in the local and international music industry, Bigsound is an event well worth being a part of. Held at a range of venues and bars in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley from last Wednesday to Friday, the Bigsound program was bursting with an array of interesting seminars and live performances, presenting attendees with some difficult decisions when it came to planning our schedules.
BIGSOUND Live is set to grow again this year, featuring 120 (!) artists taking over twelve iconic Brisbane venues in Fortitude Valley. While the first announcement had the awesome news that Violent Soho was playing a show again, finally, the second lineup has a bunch of the hottest local acts gracing some of the more intimate stages and laneways in Brisbane on September 12th and 13th.
