BIGSOUND adds 64 more artists to 2018 festival line up

Australia’s biggest music event has just become even bigger with BIGSOUND announcing this week that another 64 acts have joined the festival component of the conference, bringing the total number of acts to a whopping 139! Joining the likes of PACESKOTA BANKSELLA HOOPERCLYPSO and more will be DIDIRRINO MONOSAN MEICLEWS and many others.

Descending on Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley, 18 venues will open their doors for this year’s festival, promising to be BIGSOUND‘s biggest and best year yet. With previous acts like FLUMECOURTNEY BARNETTRUFUSTASH SULTANA and so many more all BIGSOUND alumni, the ever-evolving and expanding event is sure to help launch even more artists this year. Special parties have also been announced with OZTIX celebrating its 15th birthday, and the annual Women In Music event returning for another year. This year will also see Home First Nations Showcase expanding and officially kicking things off for the festival, as well as tonnes more over the week to get involved in.

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!
