BIG EARS

Pilot Light Presents

We’re partnering with The Pilot Light, Knoxville’s home for independent and experimental music, to host a series of shows throughout the festival weekend that are free and open to the public. From Thursday to Saturday, The Pilot Light will be your destination for killer sets from bands like Asheville psychedelic outfit Nest Egg, to secret shows from very special Big Ears guests, to a Hologram Lab with hands-on demo stations where festival goers can try out Hologram Electronics’ experimental guitar pedal effects in person, and so much more. Check the details here.
