The Big Ears Festival is Knoxville’s biggest, boldest, and most dynamic festival experience. Over four days in March, the festival features the world’s most celebrated performers and composers of our time. Big Ears is a weekend of surprise collaborations and unexpected artistic collisions, celebrating the never-ending adventure of creation and exploration. Effortlessly crossing the boundaries of musical genres as well as artistic disciplines, the Big Ears Festival features an array of world-class artists, including GRAMMY Award winners, Pulitzer Prize recipients, and MacArthur “Genius Grant” winners. Join us in March to experience 100+ performances along with a film festival, 12-hour drone, and an array of panels, workshops, and exhibitions - all in Knoxville’s extraordinary concert halls, listening rooms, clubs, churches, and galleries. The Big Ears Festival, a nonprofit cultural organization, reaches thousands of people each year through free community programming and educational expenses.
