Eilish Gilligan, KAIIT, Sleep Talk & more confirmed on BIGSOUND’s first artist reveal

BIGSOUND continues to gear up this year, with the September festival revealing more of its cards for 2018 – their first artist announcement coming this afternoon. Some familiar faces will return to The Valley to showcase their music, while a whole range of fresh names will be on the bill to bring themselves to the attention of music fans and industry members, both from Australia and abroad.

“The amount of BIGSOUND applications this year smashed last year’s record by another 70 to make up approximately 1,133 applications.” programmer Maggie Collins has said. “That’s a lot of talent. Punters wanting to own the fact that “they discovered an artist first”, better get themselves across this massive list of acts, who are on the cusp of exploding worldwide.”

Included on this first artist reveal are musicians including Eilish Gilligan (Melbourne), KAIIT (Melbourne), Sleep Talk (Adelaide) and T$OKO (Perth), while Ella HooperGabriella Cohen and Olympia represent favourites returning to the BIGSOUND fold for 2018.
