The music industry is rapidly evolving, largely in-part to innovative tech, something that will once again take centre stage at BIGSOUND 2019.

BIGSOUND Tech will return to this year’s conference, with applications now open for entrepreneurs to showcase at the September event.

The program will allow punters to discover some of Australia's best emerging start-ups while offering those behind the tech a chance to network and gain valuable feedback from industry leaders, while also getting training, mentorship and support.
