The lineup for the fourth annual Little BIGSOUND music forum has been announced. An amazing list of top industry speakers including Jeremy Neale will provide young people aged 15-25 with info on careers in the music business, and there’ll even be three awesome live performances to enjoy.
Litte BIGSOUND is programmed and run by a keen group of young people from Youth Music Industries, consisting of students from TAFEs and industry colleges around the country. In addition to traditional industry figures, this year they welcome ARIA Award winning producer Magoo, Double J online producer Dan Condon, The Arcade Creative’s Holly Gazal, and many more.
The live performance roster is equally impressive, with appearances from singer-songwriter Sahara Beck, who dazzled us back in April with her acoustic cover of Violent Soho’s Covered In Chrome, up-and-coming Brisbane indie rockers Youth Allowance, and four-piece garage outfit The Missing.
Since debuting in 2011, Little BIGSOUND has continued to attract creative youth to participate in panels and breakout sessions that touch on everything from band management, to live sound. The event is organised with a view to providing info that can help young people kick-start their careers.
“We’re so excited to be unveiling our first list of guests for this year’s Little BIGSOUND,” said year-12 student and Youth Music Industries Event Organiser Matheson Yates. “Music 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.”
