0

After announcing over 180 festival artists last month, BIGSOUND continues to crank up the volume by revealing another huge slate of game-changing speakers and industry events, set to take place in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley. next month (September 6-9).

What does it take to be in a room with Lauryn Hill, Kanye West, Eminem, The Weeknd and Whitney Houston? WRKSHP CEO and Founder and Grammy Award-winning producer Che Pope travels to Brisbane to prepare what it takes to “do anything” – as label executive and producer of some of the hip hop’s most influential albums, including ‘The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill’ and Kanye West’s groundbreaking ‘Bound 2’.

“I make records, that’s what I do,” says Che Pope. “I find different ways to fill in whatever is needed on a record – sometimes more as an A&R, and sometimes more as a songwriter/producer – but the results are the same. I call it GSD: Get sh. t done.”

Tricia Holloway (Walt Disney Imagineering Global Music Executive), a respected international music supervisor of Australian origin, will come for a digital presentation and conversation, sharing the wealth of experience that led to her current role overseeing Walt Disney Imagineering Music Studio at Disney parks, attractions, hotels, cruise ships and more.

Joining the list of keynote speakers, Yanyuwa/Wardaman Songwoman Shellie Morris, Uncle Joe Geia, Carissa Nyalu and JK-47 will unpack the process of navigating the industry through the lens of First Nations and share their insights for chart their own path in the music industry.

Want to know how to move from contemporary music to the hit game and Web3 space? Artists and key figures such as Montaigne, Tim Shiel, Woodes and many more can tell you exactly, while top Music3 figures such as Jillian Rothman (VP, New Business at Warner Music Group US) and Unified Music Group CEO Jaddan Comerford explain exactly what it means to enter the Metaverse and beyond.

As usual, BIGSOUND won’t shy away from tackling the big issues of the day. Ali Harnell heads to BIGSOUND to provide rare insight into her work as President and Chief Strategy Officer of Live Nation Women and the women-centric business initiatives she leads.

While Annabelle Herd (CEO of ARIA and PPCA) will break down her last 18 months at ARIA and offer her an ‘outsider’ view of the industry, having joined at a time when the industry was craving change .

The Support Act team will discuss minimum standards for a mentally healthy music industry, while Dr. Guy Morrow and Maggie Collins (Association of Artist Managers) will dig deeper and examine the value of management partnerships.

The hub of the new BIGSOUND Country program, Nashville-based Milly Olykan (Country Music Association International Relations and Development), will reflect on the growth of country music and also host a special edition of SongHubs In The Round.

Presented by APRA AMCOS and led by award-winning country artist Fanny Lumsden and superstar songwriter Shy Carter (Faith Hill, Keith Urban, Ashanti, Meghan Trainor, Charlie Puth), the session features six crossover genre songwriters for connect, play and share their creativity.

These guests join Tarana Burke, founder of the previously announced global Me Too movement, and internet-born sensation Rebecca Black, Mushroom Group CEO Matt Gudinski, artist and lawyer Jaguar Jonze and British producer Example.
