The southern hemisphere’s biggest new-music and music industry festival, BIGSOUND, is celebrating it’s 15th year in 2016. The festival will be running in Brisbane from September 7-9, and will showcase 150 of the best Australian bands across 15 venues to an international music industry audience. Over the past 15 years, the festival has helped launch the careers of Courtney Barnett, Flume, DMA’s, The Temper Trap, The Jezabels and many more!

As said by QMusic Executive Officer Joel Edmondson, “2016 is a turning point in BIGSOUND’s history. Although we’ve added new dimensions to the BIGSOUND experience, it’s important that we look back on our roots and celebrate just how far we’ve come”.

To help the celebrations, there’s a limited number of discount early-bird tickets available, as well as early access to the artist registration process. Get on it quick!
