As always, we thank all of you for your amazing support and enthusiasm for our ever-expanding festival. What began as a modest passion project has steadily grown into a remarkable, internationally recognized celebration of music, art and creativity. Your passion and engagement has made that possible. Big Ears 2017 is shaping up to be an extraordinary weekend, continuing to build upon and explore the themes and tangents of past festivals; we know you’re going to be as blown away by the offerings as we are. There’s nothing quite like the Big Ears weekend: this curious gathering of visionary artists and cultural explorers here in the beautiful and historic setting – with more than a small tinge of southern mystery – of downtown Knoxville.
We’re looking forward to seeing you again!
Ashley Capps, Big Ears Founder and Artistic Director
