SXSW’s Australian rep Phil Tripp said, “Despite the distance, the diminishing dollar and increasing competition from 8500 acts that applied from 65+ countries, Australian and NZ acts are continuing their momentum as artists that take no prisoners live among the 2000 other bands performing in 100 venues over SXSW’s five main nights. From only five artists in 2002 to the 47 that performed last year, Australian bands have created a sizzling brand making the industry ever more hungry for our type of musicians.”

“This is owed in no small part to Sounds Australia, the industry body which champions homegrown artists in their annual Aussie BBQ and other events. We’ve also evolved a more professional local management style as well as superior global promotion from indies and majors alike.”
