The southern hemisphere’s biggest celebration of new music is back! BIGSOUND will return to Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley this September, marking the events 21st anniversary.


Taking place from September 6-9, BIGSOUND is set to showcase over a hundred of acts, taking to the stage across Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley for three days packed of live music, idea sharing, and life changing conversations.



“This year sees the return of our first live conference and festival since 2019. We’re feeling from the industry far and wide that they’re itching to be back in rooms together and we couldn’t be more excited to get artists back on stages and industry back in their live element.” says QMusic CEO Kris Stewart.


Former BIGSOUND artist and newly elected QMusic Management Committee member Thelma Plum adds, “Growing up in Meanjin, BIGSOUND has always been such a huge vibe where fans, artists and industry from all over the country assemble over our common love for music. I played my first BIGSOUND in 2013, when I was super young, it was a huge opportunity for me and I absolutely encourage artists to apply. From totally new artists to more established acts, the line-up is always amazing.”
