And they aren’t done yet, with 24 artists still to be announced

“BIGSOUND has cemented its place as the week that Australia’s music industry come out to play and for anyone looking for reasons to join in the party, this list is a pretty good place to start,” said BIGSOUND Executive Programmer Graham Ashton

It’s wonderful to see the value the artist community places on showcasing at BIGSOUND. It’s just a shame that we’ve only got 120 spots because there are more artists than ever who are worthy to be part of the event.”
