BIGSOUND has been named Queensland Live Event of the Year for the third year running at the 2018 National Live Music Awards! A huge thanks to all the venues, volunteers, artists and partners that make BIGSOUND Festival possible.
QLD alt-rockers Venice on Fire are going from strength to strength, picking up airplay for their latest single My Friend Mal and embarking on their biggest tour yet.
Premiering over at Music Is My Muse, the single has been rocketing up the triple j Unearthed charts, with Home & Hosed host Declan Byrne praising its 'jean tearing chorus'. It's already enjoyed some spins on 4ZZZ, and is sure to prick more ears in the near future.
The Toowoomba three-piece will hit the road in support of the single release, stopping in Toowoomba, Ipswich, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Newcastle, Sydney, Wollongong, Melbourne and Geelong.
Tom said he highly recommends the program for artists looking to drive their careers to the next level.
"We learnt how to plan our release, contact agents, develop strong goals and find out what our band is really about. If you want to actually put the tips into practice, it is an incredible tool that puts you in the driver's seat. We've never felt more in control of our band."Venice on Fire
