BIGSOUND announces largest artist line-up yet for 2022 festival

Budjerah, Flowerkid, Tasman Keith, Dallas Woods, Romero, Nick Ward and Teenage Joans are just a few of the 182 artists who'll perform at the festival's first in-person event since 2019

BIGSOUND organisers have revealed the artists that will showcase at the festival this year, with the likes of Budjerah, Flowerkid, Dallas Woods, Mia Wray, Teenage Joans and Hope D set to perform.

The annual festival will run across 21 venues in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley between September 6 to 9, in tandem with its accompanying industry conference. This year’s edition will mark its first in-person iteration since 2019; last year’s edition was cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions and 2020 was held virtually.

Tasman Keith, Woodes, Dulcie, Stevan, Jerome Farah, Concrete Surfers, C.O.F.F.I.N, Romero, Nick Ward, Ashwarya, Alter Boy, Ruby Gill, Kee’ahn, Birdz, Andy Golledge and June Jones are just a small sample of the 182 artists that will be playing at this year’s event in front of a wide array of representatives from across the industry.

This year’s line-up, from over 1300 applications, marks a jump of 38 artists compared to 2019’s edition. See the full list below. Tickets for the festival are on sale now, with a three-night festival pass giving access to all performances.

“After spending a month reading and listening to a record number of applications, we are certain that the future of music is in safe hands,” commented festival programmers Ruby-Jean McCabe and Dominic Miller.

“BIGSOUND Showcase programming is a dream job so we would never complain, but it’s hard to put into words what a difficult time we had getting to this final lineup. The applications this year were of an extremely high calibre, and we could have easily programmed another 180+ artists if we had the space.

“We can’t wait for these artists to arrive in Fortitude Valley for BIGSOUND 2022 and for everyone else to see how special they are too.”

Last month, BIGSOUND announced the first round of speakers for this year’s conference, with Rebecca Black, Jaguar Jonze, Tarana Burke, Matt Gudinski and Example set to deliver keynote speeches. Delegate passes are also now on sale, granting access to both the festival’s performances along with the conference and industry events.
