BIGSOUND’s already-stacked lineup of speakers for their 2018 event has just gotten even bigger, with the conference announcing another round of industry professionals who will be joining the ranks this September.

With BIGSOUND’s first announcement revealing that none other than Dave Grohl’s mum – Virginia Grohl – will be delivering a keynote this year, attendees could already tell that things were off to a good start. Then, when the first artist lineup revealed a stunning array of artists heading up to Fortitude Valley later this year, it was all but confirmed that this year is set to be one of the conference’s biggest. Now, BIGSOUND have upped the ante and announced another huge range of speakers.

Kicking things off is none other than Aussie music icon Paul Kelly, who will deliver a keynote interview which will see him reflect on his career and the future of Aussie music, giving those in attendance a reminder of why the Aussie music scene is the greatest in the world.

Also joining the ranks are Lagwagon frontman Joey Cape and Fat Wreck Chords label founder Erin Kelly-Burkett, two of the most influential names in punk music over the last few decades, who will also deliver keynote speeches.
