Quotes from BIGSOUND 2010

"BIGSOUND was a great hang, great sounds and great chat. BIGSOUND is where the big guns of the music business go for big fun. BIGSOUND was a great opportunity to have my mind bent by some of the Antipodes up and coming musos and ear bent by some of the most experienced industry people." Brian Ritchie (Violent Femmes/The Break)

“BIGSOUND 2010 was easily the best, most well organized music conference I've been to in a decade. It reminded me of SXSW before it got so huge. For networking, educational panels and discussion groups and absolutely top shelf artist showcases, it was revelatory.” Peter Jesperson (New West Recordings USA)

“BIGSOUND 2010 was a triumph on every level. It's the best music conference I've been to in Australia hands-down! The panels and panelists were excellent. The relevance to the audience and the audience engagement was first class. And the music on display across the precinct of the conference was a great showcase of new and fresh Australian and New Zealand sounds. Bravo BIGSOUND.” John O’Donnell (OdFellows Music/Cold Chisel Management)

“A very focused and intimate festival that really shined with its ability to connect the Brisbane and Australian music community with the world. I hope I am invited back next year.” Joel Carriere (Dine Alone Records/Bedlam Music Management CAN)

“This was my first trip to BIGSOUND, after hearing so many good stories, I made the journey and was not disappointed. The line-up of local artists was second to none as were the panel discussions. I have been to many conferences worldwide and this was one of the best.” Simon Moor (Kobalt Music Publishing)

“It was an absolute honour to be invited to attend BIGSOUND this year. From the quality of the international speakers, to the fantastic new relationships forged with the Australian industry and importantly, the brilliant home grown artists, the entire experience was one which I'll never forget and I am sure will bear both creative and commercial fruits in the future.” Tim Dellow (Transgressive Records UK)

“2010 was my first BIGSOUND and it won’t be my last. It was great to catch up with the key players in the Australian Music industry, see some of Australia and New Zealand’s best up and coming artists, and get involved in some stimulating music conversations with people from all over the world. BIGSOUND has a great vibe to it, one that makes it easy to connect with people from all sectors of the Australasian music scene.” Adam Holt (Universal Music New Zealand)
