Donate Today!

Big Ears is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is carried out by a dedicated staff and dynamic board of directors, and through the support of donors like you. Ticket sales make up a portion of our annual income, but it’s the generous investment of institutions and individual donors that truly makes it possible for us to sustain, year after year, the extraordinary — and all-too-rare — range of work that sets Big Ears apart from other festivals. We can only do what we do because of you.

Donor support enables Big Ears to share the joy and transformative power of extraordinary music and art with tens of thousands of people annually. It helps us present world-class concerts by leading composers and performers, along with films, exhibitions, talks and discussions, workshops, literary events, and more. In 2020 and 2021, your generosity allowed us to remain active in the wake of the 2020 festival’s cancellation — presenting streaming concerts and free outdoor events, charting the future of the organization, and intensifying our commitment to bringing an extraordinary festival experience to Knoxville in 2022.

The return of the Big Ears Festival will not only reestablish it as one of America’s premiere arts festivals — it will help reconnect the Big Ears community through transformative and mind-blowing experiences. We are grateful for donors like you, who empower us to continue this vital work in 2022 and for years to come.
