BIGSOUND Announces First 64 Live Acts for Australia’s Biggest Music Discovery Event

BIGSOUND’s Music Festival is presented by Oztix & Mountain Goat Beer

BIGSOUND Festival 2017’s first artist announcement has exploded today, with over 60 acts making up the initial list of Australia’s hottest musicians heading to Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley live music precinct this September 5-8.

2016 saw 7000 people from around the world converge on Brisbane to surf the next wave of Australian music, with the 2017 event sure to be even bigger. This first announce overflows with names on the lips of A&R across the globe, including Winston Surfshirt, Hatchie, Alex the Astronaut, Polaris, Mansionair and Ruby Fields, as well as return BIGSOUND visitors Hockey Dad, Mama Kin and The Creases. BIGSOUND 2017 is destined to continue its legacy of building international careers and audiences for emerging and established Australian acts. 

As in each of BIGSOUND’s previous 15 incarnations, there’s something for everyone. The festival reaches across the genres, welcoming everyone from dance floor lords Total Giovanni to future hip hop star Baker Boy, electronic breakouts Haiku Hands and instrumental soulsters The Cactus Channel. The festival’s international reach also continues to grow in 2017, with the UK’s Splashh and New Zealand Critic’s Choice prize winners Bespin heading down under to join the festival.
