Other Sounds has been invited to attend Bigsound this year, Australia’s “premier music industry conference and artist showcase” which happens every September in Brisbane.
We’ll be speaking on a panel, “Touring Asia With Purpose“, and also checking out some sweet Australian bands in the evenings.
Touring Asia With Purpose
Wednesday, 09 September 2015, 11:20 AM
The Judith Wright Centre – Theatre Rehearsal Room
Touring the various markets of Asia is an exciting proposition, but how do you turn a few novelty shows into a sustainable part of your band’s touring life? Who are the publicists, labels and promoters that you need to know in places like Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Japan and India. Where do local fans discover music and who do they trust to deliver it to them? Where do you start and how do you make sure you can come back again and again?
Bands we’re not missing: Angie, Charles Murdoch, Cosmic Psychos, Donny Benet, Harvey Sutherland, Hockey Dad, Immigrant Union, Methyl Ethyl, Mesa Cosa, Mangelwurzel, Pearls, Shining Bird, Shocking Pinks, SKEGSS, Sui Zhen, and Totally Mild.
