Thanks to you, Big Ears continues to cultivate artistic and educational programs that transcend traditional boundaries while bringing the work of the world’s greatest artists to new audiences. We are so grateful for your support!
This likely goes without saying, but… Big Ears has big dreams! We are expanding our festival, strengthening engagement with local communities, and building future audiences by programming family-friendly concerts for little ears. We want to celebrate our city with artists and music-lovers worldwide, and ensure the magic of Big Ears extends beyond this one special weekend in Knoxville.
To build a broader base of support, we incorporated as a nonprofit in 2016. Ticket revenue accounts for about half of the cost to present each year’s festival. The festival is made possible by dedicated donors and sponsors who share our mission.
We’d like to ask if you’ll become a “Friend of the Festival’, and join to this very special group of donors. Your gift comes with a range of benefits, which will unlock new experiences at the festival while giving you the chance to collect unique Big Ears items. Big or small, we’re honored by your gift!
