QMusic have just dropped 2015’s Bigsound Live first acts, and it is unreal. Local bands WAAX, Babaganouj, The John Steel Singers and more join huge acts from around Australia like Gang of Youths, Holy Holy, Yukon Blonde and Methel Ethel. The full lineup of acts is listed below if you can’t wait to see who else is playing, otherwise spend a few moments with me while I have a yarn about how awesome this lineup is, and how awesome last year’s Bigsound Live was.
WAAX smashed out one of the best live performances of Bigsound 2014, and I can guarantee you that their set will be unmissable this year after having a run of incredible shows that has seen their fanbase grow exponentially over the last 10 months. Gang of Youths have just come off the back of playing Triple J’s Like A Version recently (Spoiler: They killed it), and their new album is sick. This will be our chance to catch them on the same ticket as Major Leagues, Cosmic Psychos and so many more talented Aussie bands. Cosmic Psychos just played Coolangatta Hotel the other night with Dune Rats, and from what we saw there, anyone who missed out on that show would have been green with envy.
Bigsound always catches acts right as they board the hype train to success, and this year is no different. Tempura Nights has been copping love from Brisbanites and scored the rad opportunity to support The Drums when they graced this southern land. The list goes on and on, so here it is in all its glory for you to froth over.
