BIGSOUND Announces Over 180 Artists For 21st Birthday Event

Music Feeds | July 19, 2022

BIGSOUND has announced its biggest lineup to date, naming over 180 artists for its forthcoming 21st birthday event. Taking place in Fortitude Valley this September, it marks the first in-person edition of BIGSOUND since 2019.

Announcing its full details, this year’s BIGSOUND celebrations see a full total of 182 artists on the list – a jump of 38 artists as compared to the 2019 edition, with over 1,300 applications received by organisers. This dizzying list of artists will perform on 23 stages across 21 venues, over three nights in Fortitude Valley from 6th until the 9th September.

BIGSOUND 2022 will be its first in-person event since 2019

In addition to numerous upcoming and unsigned artists, this year’s BIGSOUND lineup also features a large array of artists whose profiles have grown substantially over the last two years, leaving them without the chance to showcase their work on the conference stages. These acts include the likes of Adrian Dzvuke, Budjerah, flowerkid, Dallas Woods, Mia Wray, and Teenage Joans, just to name a few.

“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,’ explained Festival programmers Ruby-Jean McCabe and Dominic Miller. “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.”

With all the listed artists set to perform before hundreds of labels, publishers, agents, festival programmers, publicists, and industry delegates, this year’s BIGSOUND also includes the addition of its BIGSOUND Country lineup, which sees it focusing on the the multi-faceted world of country music.

Meanwhile, a number of New Zealand artists will make their way to local shores, with JessB, Soaked Oats, Troy Kingi, TE KAAHU, Church & AP, MELODOWNZ, and Jenny Mitchell all appearing at this year’s festivities.

The artist announcement also comes months after the first keynote speaks for the event were named, with the likes of Rebecca Black, Tarana Burke, Matt Gudinski, Jaguar Jonze, and Example all set to share their unique insights. Tickets for BIGSOUND 2022 are on sale now, with full details available via the event’s website.
