BIGSOUND unveils first line up for 2018 festival

Australia’s premier music industry event, BIGSOUND is a music conference that continues to develop and evolve into a week that sees artists, managers, agents, label execs, writers and so much more all come together to check out the next crop of Australian (and beyond) artists. Taking over Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley for a week, the conference and festival delivers more and more every year, consistently offering up an eclectic mix of thought-provoking panels and keynotes during the day, and a hugely impressive and diverse selection of artists for the festival component in the evening.

Once again, this year is no exception as today the festival unveils the first crop of artists set to play throughout the week. From Australian rock royalty ELLA HOOPER to Brisbane heroes BLANK REALM, to buzzworthy artists such as CABLE TIESELIOTTKOTA BANKSKWAMEEILISH GILLIGANCLYPSOKAIIT and CXLOE all locked in, and some bigger favourites such as PACESGABRIELLA COHEN and OLYMPIA, this year’s line up once again sees a whole spectrum of artists from emerging to fully-fledged superstars all in the mix.

Tickets are on sale now, and range from a one night pass at $45.00 all the way through to the Purple Pass which gets you access to both the conference and the festival. It’s a choose-your-own-adventure model to take a look here and check the full line up below!
