BIGSOUND registrations and BIGSOUND Live showcase applications are opening early this year for the September 11-13 event. Held annually in Brisbane, BIGSOUND is recognised as Australia's leading international music industry gathering. Over three days each September, BIGSOUND draws a growing contingent of musicians, managers, buyers, industry experts and music lovers to meet, learn, and discover new music in Brisbane's renowned entertainment precinct, Fortitude Valley.

With early bird ticket rates now open, there’s no better time to register. This discount price is available for a limited time only and includes entry to all conference sessions, parties, after-parties and live music events.

Australian and international artists also have the rare chance to perform in front of some of the most influential figures in the international music industry, with BIGSOUND Live applications now open.

Taking place on the nights of the 11th and 12th September BIGSOUND Live is the two-night music festival that puts artists in front of the local, national and international music industry delegates. In 2013 BIGSOUND Live showcases 120 acts over 12 venues.

With previous years’ festival line-ups featuring the likes of Clare Bowditch, Ball Park Music, Boy and Bear, The Jezabels, Children Collide, DZ Deathrays, Cloud Control, Emma Louise, The Getaway Plan and Lanie Lane it's easy to see why BIGSOUND Live is the place to be for breaking artists.
