They’ll be joined byÂ triple js unearthed Big Sound competition winners Parades, all of whom will be flying the NSW flag with skill, talent and incredible awesomeness.
Big Sound is happening September 9 – 11 throughout Fortitude Valley in Brisbane. The conference by day will invite discussions from new technologies to Australian festivals and everything in between. By night the city comes alive with the brightest lights and now 14 of the best NSW artists.
