Sounds Australia – Hitting the Road Again in May
As the weather gets hotter in the Northern hemisphere, so too do the opportunities for Australian artists to showcase their talents to the world. The UK is first cab off the rank, with Sounds Australia presenting The Aussie BBQ in London on May 12 at Cargo with 12 bands for a huge 12 hours… plus the obligatory BBQ feast. Buy tickets now.
We then return to Brighton for The Great Escape, with 20 Australian artists hitting the seaside town to no doubt dazzle and delight international delegates and local fans alike.
Come May 21, we head to the even warmer climes of Singapore, where nine Australian artists will showcase at Music Matters, “Asia’s #1 celebration of music discovery”, including a keynote performance from Gurrumul and The Aussie BBQ showcase.
May is also the time to get your applications in for local and international showcasing opportunities later in the year.
Reeperbahn Festival takes place in Hamburg, Germany from 25-28 September and application are open until July 1.
CMJ Music Marathon happens in New York City 15-19 October and applications to play close June 26.
