Selected from over 1,200 applications, the initial 70 names were chosen by BIGSOUND Music Programmers Casey O’Shaughnessy and Katie Rynne. “We are blown away by the calibre of artists that applied this year,” they said. “It’s a privilege to program such an incredible lineup.”

BIGSOUND, now in its 23rd year, has a history of showcasing future stars like Rufus du Sol, Tash Sultana, and Tones and I. This year’s lineup continues that tradition with artists from all over Australia and beyond. Highlights include The Belair Lip Bombs, fresh from their European tour, ARIA-charting Rowena Wise, and post-punk outfit dust, who recently supported Interpol and Bloc Party.

The festival will also feature a strong representation of First Nations talent, including Maanyung, Ray Dimakarri Dixon, and Kiwat Kennell. Additionally, New Zealand acts like NO CIGAR and DARTZ will be joining the festivities.
