When it rains, it pours. A second set of speakers and live artists for Bigsound 2015 have been announced this week, and you can find all of the awesome additions below. With the diverse Peter Garrett leading the first speaker announcement with Brother Ali, you’ll find industry members from labels such as I OH YOU, Golden Era Records and more joining the massive conference.
Alongside these speaker announcements, the venues that will play host to Bigsound’s live aspect have been announced.The Black Bear Lodge, Brightside (two stages), Crowbar, Oh Hello (triple j Unearthed stage), Press Club, Ric’s Bar, The Elephant Hotel, The Foundry, The Flying Cock, The Zoo, Woolly Mammoth (two stages), The New Globe and one final mystery venue. Where the mystery venue is remains (obviously) a mystery, but we’ll keep you posted as it gets closer to Bigsound.
The new announcement highlights bands that will be playing these stages, and this new addition features quite a number of triple J favourites. Tired Lion, The Belligerents and JOY have all graced triple J’s live airwaves in the last 10 months either through Like A Version or a live performance. Green Buzzard, a fresh addition to the too-cool I OH YOU lineup is featured on the new announcement along with A Breach of Silence, NGAIIRE, cln and a stack more. Check out the full list below!
