Each year Ben Sherman selects a range of the best emerging artists in Australian independent music to come together over two nights in Sydney & Melbourne for the Big British Sound.
This year’s line up features Strange Talk, Ball Park Music, Boy In A Box, Owl Eyes (Melb only) and Step-Panther (Syd only). Each band throws one or two covers into their set from British artists that they are influenced by or British songs they simply dig.
Tame Impala, Little Red, Deep Sea Arcade, Jonathan Boulet and The Seabellies have all been part of previous years line ups with last year selling out both Sydney and Melbourne shows.
Ben Sherman has been linked with the music scene dating back to 1960s Britain when Mods started wearing his clothes. Fast forward to 2011 and you have the Big British Sound; a combination of Australia’s best new indie bands, fun DJs and a low ticket price, making for an affordable, unrestricted night of good times.
Now there is the tiny ticket price of $10+bf but we also have a few double passes to giveaway in each city.
