"BIGSOUND 2011 was actually one of the best nights and gigs of my life. I had such a great time that I think I said "that was the best gig I've ever done" right after I came offstage. It was a completely packed-out venue and the vibe was just incredible!"
- Lanie Lane, Showcasing Artist 2011 (AUS)

With previous years’ festival line-ups featuring the likes of Clare Bowditch, Ball Park Music, Boy and Bear, The Jezabels, Children Collide, DZ Deathrays, Cloud Control, Emma Louise, The Getaway Plan and Lanie Lane it's easy to see why BIGSOUND Live is the place to be for breaking artists.
