BRISBANE, AUS (CelebrityAccess) – Australia’s famed BIGSOUND Festival returns for another edition September 3-6 in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley Live Music Precinct.

This year’s theme, which has been revealed as ‘The Artist As CEO,’ will see the event acknowledging the new music paradigm in which artists are now truly in the centre of the industry, making empowered creative and business choices around their music.

On the festival side, BIGSOUND will once again be providing three nights of showcases with over 150 bands from across Australia and the world playing in front of global industry tastemakers. BIGSOUND alumni include: Flume, Gang of Youths, Courtney Barnett, Tash Sultana, Rufus Du Sol and many more.

On the conference side, BIGSOUND 2019 will this year be waving goodbye to its traditional conference home at the Judith Wright Centre and saying hello to Cloudland, providing expanded conference and meeting facilities right in the heart of the BIGSOUND Festival precinct.

BIGSOUND Tech also makes its return, expanding and extending to the length of the conference, giving tech entrepreneurs the ability to showcase to the wider conference as well as gain access to greater market feedback, training and support.

BIGSOUND is also expanding the “Hook Up” sessions to provide opportunities for artists and industry to connect through deeper one-on-one face time. This year will also see the introduction of “WTF” micro-workshops for accelerated understanding of important but often daunting subjects such as blockchain or neighboring rights as well as a focus on relatable storytellers, thinkers and innovators.

Lastly, BIGSOUND 2019 also sees the addition of a new programming team with Tom Larkin (Shihad, VVV Management) assisting the conference events and Melody Forghani (Twnty Three) and Tim Shiel (Spirit Level, Double J) joining the live music team.
