QMusic is really leading the way when it comes to networking events that cater to new and emerging artists. Little BigSound is an underage version of the hugely successful music industry conference BigSound that takes place in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley every September. As such this event aims to provide the same kind of networking experience for youth aged 15-25 years interested in a career in the music industry, and facilitates meetings for participants with local venue bookers, managers, publicist and digital specialists. Also featured this year is an Ableton workshop that will teach participants the basics of this next gen music-making tool.
