Big Sound Announce Line-Up

As BIGSOUND turns twelve, it morphs from the precocious child into the cool, smart, popular kid we all wish we were, beginning 2013 by overachieving with the most impressive first announcement in its history. 

BIGSOUND, held this year from September 11-13 is now one of the biggest music industry gatherings in the southern hemisphere and welcomes great names from around the world. With the UK’s pioneering agitator Billy Bragg, US crowd-funding  poster-child Amanda Palmer and Australia’s Queen of country Kasey Chambers heading up the speaker’s list, this first lineup announcement already ensures an inspirational and perhaps controversial conference program. 

BIGSOUND has also let the first dozen live artists slip, with Xavier Rudd, Megan Washington, The John Steel Singers, Stonefield, Bleeding Knees Club, The Jungle Giants, Spit Syndicate, Dune Rats, Clubfeet, Thelma Plum, Citizen Kay and Little Bastard among the first of 120 artists from Australia, New Zealand, Canada and more to play over twelve venues in the biggest gathering of emerging artists in Australia.
