Festival programmers Ruby-Jean McCabe and Dominic Miller shares. “Wow, what a ride! After spending a month reading and listening to a record number of applications, we are certain that the future of music is in safe hands. BIGSOUND Showcase programming is a dream job so we would never complain, but it’s hard to put into words what a difficult time we had getting to this final lineup. The applications this year were of an extremely high calibre, and we could have easily programmed another 180+ artists if we had the space. We can’t wait for these artists to arrive in Fortitude Valley for BIGSOUND 2022 and for everyone else to see how special they are too.”
