BIG EARS

2020 Dates Announced!

Three months have passed since the final sounds of Big Ears 2019 slowly faded into the night and we’re now moving further and deeper into the process of planning the 2020 festival…not that we ever really stopped.

We deeply appreciate the love letters, comments, criticisms, suggestions, and good advice that many of you have sent our way since March. We’re also very grateful to those of you who took the time to respond to the official Big Ears survey. Your thoughts and observations help to make us better and provide invaluable information as we work to make each festival a more extraordinary experience than the one before.

Next year, Big Ears 2020 will open on Thursday, March 26, and continue through Sunday, March 29. We plan to announce most of our line up in early October, and we’ll put tickets on sale at that time too.

Between now and then, we’ll be sharing items that we hope you find of interest – and, at some point, there’ll be a special festival presale, offered to last year’s attendees, offering tickets at last year’s price for the truly adventurous who don’t really need to see a line up to make a commitment. You may also discover, during the coming weeks, a hint or two or three about what’s in store for 2020 (sometimes we just can’t help ourselves).

In the meantime, we hope you enjoy a wonderful summer with good friends and great music.

Cheers!
