BIGSOUND Festival has unveiled its full 2019 program, detailing an extensive and impressive list of industry figures, big wigs and titans set to grace the event with their hard-earned expertise. In a true testament to just how much pull the music industry conference has, they’ve announced somewhat of a whale among this year’s keynote speakers: Event guru and Fyre Festival mover and shaker, Andy King.
King, yes, that kind from the doco, will be taking one for the team once more. The team being us, the soon to be enthralled audience and “taking one” is the lousy 24-hour flight it will take to get here. King will no doubt take us on his wild journey which culminated in pop culture icon status for his next-level participation with the infamous festival.
As well as King, some 70+ other speakers, panelists and buyers representing a plethora of companies and organisations including, but not limited to, Spotify, ARIA, triple j, The Fader, Sony Music, Unified Music Group, Secret Service and X-Ray Touring.
You can drool at the entire selection of juicy, industry brains below.
With the speakers comes the announcement of the conferences panels, forums and workshops that the below names will populate. Events such as Women In Music, What Is Music Supervision and Why Should Media Give A Fuck About Australian Music will be some of the many topics picked apart through out the multi-day event.
Once you’ve spent time networking, hobnobbing and pressing the flesh, you can kick back and get amongst some of the 150 live artists who will be taking over The Valley this year, with more than a dozen specially curated parties already confirmed.
