Australia’s Gold Coast is on our mind as we prepare to attend the BIGSOUND Festival and Conference in Brisbane in September. We are excited that SynchAudio will join a prestigious gathering of international speakers and thought leaders to tap the sharp edge of expertise and knowledge and to share with the many artists and business delegates attending the conference.
BIGSOUND FESTIVAL & CONFERENCE
SYNCHAUDIO is proud to be a sponsor of BIGSOUND 2017 which, launched in 2002, is celebrating its 16th year as Australia’s leading music event. It attracts over 1,300 delegates and 6,000 music fans. The festival and conference takes place this year from September 5 – 8 in Fortitude Valley (known locally as “the Valley”), Australia’s only designated entertainment district and home of some of the country’s most outstanding concert venues. More than a music festival, BIGSOUND also includes the business of music with its conference that draws industry leaders from not only Australia but internationally.
Complementing the “music as the glue” philosophy BIGSOUND also presents Visual Arts Festival and Music Tech Showcase. QMusic, the event producers, predict that by 2020 BIGSOUND will attract 2,500 conference attendees and an additional 10,000 members of the public.

ZAN ROWE of triple j will present Mary Ramos “in conversation”. BIGSOUND delegates will not want to miss this session with Mary as she takes the audience on a journey inside her creative space to shed light on how she works as a music supervisor, how she navigates working with directors and composers and to share her insights on the role music plays in enhancing the director’s vision for storytelling on screen.

Noush comments: “Over the last three years we have made it our mission to take SynchAudio to the world, to strategically introduce ourselves to the global music community and to partner with some of the biggest international music business conferences. Currently we are on course having participated in strategic alliances, as event sponsors and partnerships in numerous music business conferences in France, Germany, Spain, UK, Sweden, Canada, the Caribbean and the US. Now we are excited to add BIGSOUND Australia to our list of prestigious international conferences.”
While business is the primary goal, the opportunity to see the world through a variety of cultural lenses, geography and of course music is one of the great rewards. We are looking forward to exploring the Gold Coast, Queensland and Brisbane as a wonderful perk of our attending BIGSOUND 2017.
