Major BIGSOUND Keynotes Announced

Best Coast’s Bethany Cosentino, music writer and industry figure Vivien Goldman, Frontier Touring’s Sahara Herald and acclaimed artist Mojo Juju join the stellar 2019 speaker lineup.

Bethany Cosentino has become an important and outspoken artist voice. As well as writing some of the best indie anthems of the last decade, she has also lent her voice, speaking out against sexism and sexual assault, sharing her journey to sobriety and struggle with insomnia.

Vivien Goldman has had an incredible journey through the music industry, working as a journalist in the UK on publications such as NME, Sounds and Melody Maker, hosting on pirate radio, working in labels as Bob Marley’s first publicist, becoming an artist herself as part of 80s new-wave duo Chantage and finally becoming an acclaimed author, with her latest book Revenge of the She-Punks chronicling female voices across the punk movement.

Sahara Herald has been a staple of the live music industry for decades, with eighteen years as National Event Co-ordinator of the Big Day Out before moving to Mushroom Group’s Frontier Touring where she was appointed Tour Director in 2018, being integral in the success of record breaking tours such as Troye Sivan, Lorde, The Killers, Paul Kelly, Shawn Mendes, Midnight Oil and Sam Smith.

Mojo Juju is one of Australia’s most important artist voices who takes us on her journey of self-discovery and storytelling through music and breaking through in 2018 with her triple-ARIA nominated album Native Tongue.
