Bigsound Announce First Live Acts For 2016

Bigsound has announced the first instalment of live acts for their fifteenth anniversary festival.

With a whopping 89 acts ready to descend on Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley this September, and a stack more still to come, Bigsound 2016 is going to be one heck of a celebration.

The annual music conference has already garnered a reputation as being the place for taste-makers and music lovers alike to get a glimpse of the next big things in the country’s music scene, and just a quick glimpse through the lineup proves exactly that.

With acts including Sampa the Great, Alex Lahey, Wallace, Gabriella Cohen, Tigertown, Tash Sultana, BANFF, Tiny Little Houses, and Owen Rabbit, all taking the stage across the festival’s three days, as well as international visitors including NAATIONS (US), Fazerdaze (NZ), Groeni (NZ), and Prateek Kuhad (India), Brisbane doesn’t seem like a bad place to get to.

The festival will feature 150 acts across 15 venues, as well as an Industry Conference including UNIFIED’s Jaddan Comerford, Conan O’Brien booker Jim Pitt, music supervisor Marcy Bulkeley (Independence Day 2, Jurassic World), Universal Publishing’s Taylor Testa.

Bigsound will take over Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley from Wednesday September 7 until Friday September 9. Tickets to both the conference and festival are on sale now.
