We’re not far off from the 2018 edition of BIGSOUND kicking off, and as usual, the annual conference have done what they do best and expanded with a huge announcement of stunning local acts.

Just last month, BIGSOUND revealed its first lineup of artists heading to this year’s event. With the likes of Eat Your Heart Out, Arteries, Sleep Talk, Kwame, Gabriella Cohen, and Rachel Maria Cox all making their way up to Queensland, you could be forgiven for thinking that the lineup couldn’t get any bigger.

Now, the conference’s second announcement has expanded once again with a huge list of artists that include the likes of Didirri, CLEWS, Arno Faraji, San Mei, Bad Juju, and Robbie Miller. Needless to say, if you’re into stunning Aussie musicians who are right on the cusp of exploding onto the global music scene, this lineup is for you.

“Brisbane has been the incubator for many international music acts over the decades and we’re proud to once again stage BIGSOUND in the Fortitude Valley, the city’s hub of live music and emerging talent,” explained Lord Mayor Graham Quirk.

“Performers, buyers, speakers, talent scouts and visitors converging on Brisbane will discover a great place to live, work and relax, and BIGSOUND will add to the 50,000 annual festivals, markets and events that contribute to our vibrant and creative city.”

With countless speakers, artists, and music industry veterans heading up to Fortitude Valley from September 4th to 7th, now is the time to start planning your trip to ensure you see the best of what the world of local and international music has to offer.

Tickets to this year’s event are available now from the BIGSOUND website, with this week serving as your last opportunity to grab a BIGSOUND Purple Pass at a discounted rate, with pricing going up to its full rate on August 1st.
