The annual Big Sound music conference and Valley Fiesta will return to Brisbane this week.
Music conferences can be touch and go, but Big Sound has the right mixture of government support from Trade, Tourism and Art (which is actually quite a rarity); key music industry organisations and a host of interesting speakers from all areas of the music business.
Couple that with music showcases from signed and unsigned artists performing across a selection of different venues around The Valley, Big Sound has plenty to offer visiting delegates.
Brisbane's biggest street party, The Valley Fiesta, will follow directly after the conference. The Valley Precinct will be transformed into every music lover's dream—a multitude of bars, clubs, restaurants and venues will showcase Aussie darlings Operator Please, Blue Juice, upcoming nautical explorers The Boat People, DJ Dexter from the Avalanches, Ajax and plenty more.
If you can't make Big Sound, book in a trip to the Valley this weekend for the Fiesta. There's plenty happening: Check our event listings below for the best of the best.
