The famous Fortitude Valley Live Music Precinct will be alive with activity as Australia shows off its musical wares to the world as well as welcoming breaking international acts including Yumi Zouma (NZ), iNCH (Singapore), In Each Hand A Cutlass (Singapore), .gif (Singapore), NAATIONS (USA), Prateek Kuhad (India), Fazerdaze (NZ) and more.

“It’s hard to explain what the Bigsound experience is like because there’s nothing else like it in the country,” said Bigsound producer Joel Edmondson.

“Imagine taking over a whole inner-city suburb and turning it into a treasure hunt for the best new music Australia has to offer. Add to that one of the best party vibes there is and you start to get the drift.”

Get down to Bigsound Festival 2016 from Wednesday September 7 to Friday September 9 in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane.
