BIGSOUND announces epic final artist line-up including more WA acts

27 Jul

Australia’s biggest music industry conference, BIGSOUND has  made the final announcement of artists for their 2017, bringing the final artist count to a whopping 134, and now including a heap of WA acts set to show the east coast what’s up!

Having already announced a massive amount of artists for the event and an impressive list of speakers (including Archie Roach, Jane Gazzo, and Tina Arena), BIGSOUND’s latest announcement includes WA acts HAMJAM, Scalphunter, Stella Donnelly and Teischa. They join previously announced local artists  Boat Show, Dream Rimmy, Mama Kin, Peter Bibby, POW! Negro and Ziggy Ramo.

WAM’s also proud to have helped organise for some funds to be administered to all WA acts headed to BIGSOUND, with huge thanks to Culture and the Arts WA (DCA) / Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries (DLGSC) for providing the funds to do this with.

“The quality of new and Australian music is currently exemplified by how hard it was to choose these artists out of approximately 1070 applications,” said BIGSOUND Festival programmer Maggie Collins. “Every single artist on this lineup has something unique to showcase and to achieve. I’m frothing over these acts and can’t wait to show them off.”

Tickets to BIGSOUND are on sale now, with single-night passes costing you $45, and a four-night Rainbow pass setting you back $85. Purple passes, which allows you access to conferences, delegate portal and label parties in addition to the showcases are also available, with special rates available until July 31st.
