Made in SA will be presented Thursday 7 September, 12pm – 2.30pm at The Outpost in Fortitude Valley, as part of the BIGSOUND 2023 national music conference and showcase in Brisbane (Meanjin), Queensland. Running over four days and three nights, Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley comes alive with a global gathering of musicians, industry, brands, media and music lovers.

Made in SA offers a unique chance for SA artists and local SA industry workers to take advantage of our presence at BIGSOUND together, connecting with national industry and guests over a drink and some delicious bbq, before hearing some of the hottest sounds to come out of SA right now.

2023 Robert Stigwood Fellows: Aleksiah and The Empty Threats, as well as 2022 Robert Stigwood Fellows Wanderers will be showcasing at Made in SA, in addition to other showcasing events! For all SA showcase schedules, see below.

This year sees eight up-and-coming phenomenal local talents attending BIGSOUND to showcase to industry from all over the country and from overseas.
