Launched last night in Melbourne, music industry event BIGSOUND has come under criticism from last year’s headline keynote speaker, Alan McGee.
McGee, who caused controversy at BIGSOUND when he labelled the PIAS warehouse blaze in the UK a “result” and claimed he no longer listened to music anymore, has Tweeted (to his 3,600+ followers) that the industry music conference is “a joke” and “second rate”.
The three main speakers unveiled for this year’s event are musician and activist David Bridie, EMI Chairman Mark Poston and LA-based singer-songwriter Ben Lee.
The first 10 BIGSOUND showcase artists have been revealed as well. Click here
