With MIDEM under our belts and our THE AUSSIE BBQ’s first successful outing in Cannes, all eyes are on Austin, TX for SXSW. And with close to sixty Australian acts heading over, SOUNDS AUSTRALIA is gearing up for our largest outing yet.
En route to Austin, we’ll be stopping off in LA for THE AUSSIE BBQ at Bootleg HiFi. With twenty Australian acts taking to the stage, it will be the largest showcase of live Australian music ever produced in California. Taking place on Sunday 9th March, the LA leg of our US trip will host an impressive and diverse line up of acts from every corner of our country, and we are eagerly anticipating a great day, spent with good tunes, good eats and great company.
For those folks in LA, or those that have music loving friends in LA, tickets to THE AUSSIE BBQ can be purchased here.
From LA, we dive headfirst in to SXSW; a staple in the SOUNDS AUSTRALIA calendar since our inception. The number of Australian artists showcasing has never been this significant, and we are thrilled to be producing a number of events throughout the week featuring some of the very best talent this country has to offer.
Throughout the week there will be several networking and showcasing events throughout town, culminating as it always does with THE AUSSIE BBQ on Saturday, 15th March. Covering three stages, over fourteen hours and featuring close to forty acts, this has now become one of the best attended events at SXSW and we’re looking forward to seeing the thousands of fans and industry pack out Maggie Maes once more.
