Each year BIGSOUND brings an elective, mix of musicians, music lovers, and the who’s who of the Australian music industry together for three days of discussion around the future of homegrown and international music in Brisbane’s home of awesome music – Fortitude Valley.

Industry challenges are discussed, new relationships built and an ever-growing list of keynote speakers inspire, educate, innovate and lead workshops, and then it all wraps up in a fabulous festival over 15 inner-city and fringe venues, that the public can also attend where established and new talent perform for the masses. 

BIGSOUND is now in its 15th year, and boasts the biggest line-up yet, with over 150 artists including Tash Sultana, Flowertruck, DZ Deathrays, and Good Boy in fun venues like the Empire Hotel (our personal fave), Heya Bar and the Flying Cock, which also plays host to the Mushroom Official Bigsound Party, ‘Free for All’ on Tuesday 6 September.
