Little BIGSOUND will once again captivate the youth nation with another explosive one-day music festival to be held on Saturday the 29th July at the State Library of Queensland.

Presented by QMusic and the Brisbane City Council, the full program will feature two of the most talked about artists in the Australian music industry, Airling (Hannah Shepherd) and The Kite String Tangle (Danny Harley), both of whom have taken an inspiring journey in their young careers.

Through this action-packed day attendees can select sessions between 10am and 4pm, making use of a variety of technology facilities at the State Library of Queensland. Tickets are limited so make sure to purchase them for $35+bf via Oztix.

Visitors can get creative and make their own music through next generation production software and live instrumentation in the Edge’s Digital Media Lab that has been transformed into the Ableton Live Studio. In addition, the Recording Studio will spotlight an interactive installation, KORG History of Synths, that will take attendees through a historical journey of the synthesizer.

The Edge’s Innovation Lab will feature digital marketing and publicity interactive sessions with Title Track PR’s Sarah Chipman and Comes With Fries founder, Vanessa Picken. If music junkies are serious about a career in the industry, be sure to check out the Auditorium where artists can plan a release from start to finish through the ‘Circle of Life’ session hosted by Mucho Bravado’s Ben Preece. The QMusic team, along with Julia Bridger will also provide insights into income streams, sustainability and career structures that will help artists fast track into becoming a musical sensation.

Triple J’s Unearthed High and multi-Queensland Music Award winner, Tia Gostelow, along with Dew Process’s A&R executive, John Mullen, and record producer, Konstantin Kersting, will explore the song-writing process throughout the course of the day.

If networking is more the direction you want to take, be sure to get involved in the Round Table Sessions in the Window Bays, in which visitors can meet-and-greet emerging artists, agents, publicists and managers to assist in helping them publicise their music and potentially get their first gigs.

As an exciting end to the festival, Little BIGSOUND will provide a free all-ages gig in the evening. Live music will also be performed throughout the day, with Asha Jefferies, Ruby Gilbert, TOBI and Twelve Past Midnight as the chosen participants.

“Little BIGSOUND gives youth creatives a unique opportunity to meet, create and learn… Participating will give you the opportunity to become the future of music,” QMusic Program Manager, Trina Massey said.
