Taking one for the team Andy King is bringing his mojo to Bigsound

We’ve all seen the clip, used the meme and thought about Evian Water but Bigsound is bringing the sage motivation and advice of the man himself down-under.

Andy King now a pop culture icon following the release of the Netflix documentary ‘Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened’ which has seen him become the poster child for going the extra mile, Andy will be keynoting the Bigsound 2019 festival showcasing his learnings, insights and good humour.

Bigsound is Australia’s biggest music industry gathering and new music discovery festival with the entire conference and lineup featuring representatives from Spotify, ARIA, Triple j, The Fader, Sony Music, Unified Music Group, Secret Service and X-Ray Touring just to name a few.

They join the recently announced keynote speakers Best Coast’s Bethany Cosentino, music writer and industry figure Vivien Goldman, Frontier Touring’s Sahara Herald, acclaimed artist Mojo Juju, and Nettwerk Music’s Terry McBride, as well as a keynote featuring four First Nations voices to unpack cultural resurgence and working within a global settler-led music industry.

And that’s before we even get to the 150 bands and over a dozen parties including the first Indie Label Market on the event’s closing night. BIGSOUND is teaming up with Mountain Goat and [PIAS] for the market between 5-8pm featuring indie labels from around Australia as they sell vinyl, merch and spin some of their releases before turning Ric’s Backyard into the final night of live music as the featured labels showcase their rosters.

Grab the app, some headphones, your ticket, and your mates to start planning your BIGSOUND 2019 musical journey.
