Little BIGSOUND Still Pretty Big
James Bullock | On 06, Jun 2015
The 27th of July is a big date for those who aim to make their mark on the music industry.
Little BIGSOUND is once again nearing, the forerunner for Brisbane’s biggest local event, as well as a top networking and information platform for those in the musical world with the drive to achieve, but are still lacking in know-how.
Again located at Fortitude Valley’s Judith Wright Centre, Little BIGSOUND will once again play host to a highly specialised panel of speakers from both sides of the stage, including producing legend Magoo, Footstomp Music Director Graham Ashton, and 4ZZZ Music Director Chris Cobcroft, all of which are ready to dive into the gritty world of working behind the scenes to ensure success for those onstage.
For those interested in being onstage but haven’t quite perfected their windmill-guitar, the likes of Dean McGrath (Rolls Bayce) and Sahara Beck will be bringing you to speed on the contemporary world of music, running through all manner of pressing topics with the added charm of a musicians perspective.
Little BIGSOUND is run this year by a team of enthusiastic young managers, mentored by Queensland’s QMusic, making the organisation of the event a learning process in itself.
Fiona Cambell, Youth Coordinator of the event, is especially enthusiastic.
â€œWe are so excited to be unveiling our program for this yearâ€™s Little BIGSOUND,â€ said Fiona Campbell, youth curator of the event. â€œMusic is such an important part of our lives and Little BIGSOUND has given us a chance to work in the area we love. Being able to organise an event that opens a window into such an exciting industry has been amazing.â€
Even though the event is still in its early years, the previous events have been crackers, hosting the likes of the Jungle Giants, Hey Geronimo, The Medics, and Jeremy Neale, as well as myriad directors, managers, and coordinators.
With international phenomena such as TED X making waves in the intellectual circles, it seems appropriate that a conference dedicated solely to music is being met with similar, if not local hype.
If you have any interest whatsoever in the music business, get yourself a ticket.
