The Big Ears Festival
March 23 - March 25
The Big Ears Festival – Knoxville’s biggest, boldest, and most dynamic festival experience – has become one of the world’s most eagerly anticipated cultural events, a 4 day weekend featuring the most celebrated, innovative musicians and composers of our time – spanning rock, jazz, classical, folk, electronica and including an array of Grammy Award, Pultizer Prize, and MacArthur “Genius” Grant winners – in over 100 concerts in Knoxville’s extraordinary array of world-class concert hall, places of worship, listening rooms, clubs, and galleries.
For a weekend each year, the Big Ears Festival causes Knoxville to have one of the highest concentrations of Pultizer Prize, MacArthur “Genius” Grant, and Grammy Award winning musicians and artists of any city in the United States.
