No event brings Fortitude Valley to life quite like Big Sound. Whilst there is always plenty happening in Brisbane’s entertainment and live music precinct, including great annual events such as Valley Fiesta, it is only Big Sound that brings artists, music industry representatives and fans together for a feast of live music over three nights. Wednesday and Thursday evenings feature official Big Sound showcase performances from 150 artists at 15 different venues, with Friday night set aside for the official closing party at The Triffid.
Throw in the increasing number of pre-festival shows, industry showcases and post-festival events and there is now a week of live music on offer. The 2016 event again featured great performances from an eclectic batch of bands and artists.
