BIGSOUND is Australia’s premier music industry conference and artist showcase, and is regarded by many previous attendees as the best event of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere. Its 15th incarnation in 2016 promises to deliver the same atmosphere of innovation and togetherness that has come to define its essential place in the international music industry calendar.

BIGSOUND is where the world discovers Australian music. For 3 days every September, a vibrant collection of musicians, buyers and experts from across the globe assemble in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley to build their professional networks, explore the challenges of our ever-evolving industry, and experience the next wave of music from Australia and beyond.

By day, BIGSOUND’s conference program features internationally significant keynote speakers and challenging, cutting-edge workshop topics. At sundown, delegates mix with Brisbane’s music-loving public in a 15-venue frenzy of live music discovery, and it’s here that most of the real networking happens.

BIGSOUND is not only good for business – it’s a really good time too.

BIGSOUND is produced by QMusic, Queensland’s music industry development association.

BIGSOUND 2016 will be held 7 - 9 September
