Also today, BIGSOUND have announced an exclusive workshop in partnership with Support Act, Access EAP and Levi’s that focuses on identifying mental health issues, how to manage them and how to help others who may be facing them in the music industry.

“This is a big reason that the music industry is decades behind many other industries in terms of gender equity, mental health, corporate governance and overall people and culture development.” Joel Edmondson says. “The evolution of the BIGSOUND conference experience is designed to give delegates exposure to learning experiences that can radically transform how they think, work and relate to other people.”
