In news that’s surely going to get tongues wagging, BIGSOUND 2020 is going 100% virtual to compete with the covid-19 pandemic sweeping across the world BUT that means organisers will have more to offer with keynote speakers from across the globe getting announced for this year’s event, including royalty himself, Mr Tom Morello joining the show for a chat.
On the news, Morello says:
“Join me at BIGSOUND to talk music, activism, and how the guitar can be a divining rod for truth and justice. The world is at a dangerous crossroads and it’s time to feed the poor, fight the power, and rock the f**k out.”
Also joining the Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave, Prophets Of Rage and the Nightwatchman guitarist will be pop icon Amy Shark, Nat’s What I Reckon will be doing a very special cooking show and Johann Ponniah will chat all things IOHYOU (Violent Soho, DZ Deathrays, DMAs) + many more!
BIGSOUND Creative Director Janne Scott added:
“Very few artists radiate and live their purpose the way that Tom Morello does, his power, conviction and guitar shredding sound is like no other… This keynote is a personal dream of mine and an absolute privilege for BIGSOUND to present, delivered at a time when we could all use a little Morello magic.”
BIGSOUND 2020 takes place on October 21 and 22.
