on January 6,2014 by jared
Big Fun, Winnipeg's preminent independent music festival is back for it's second year, taking place January 22nd through the 26th, 2014. This year's Big Fun features more than 30 amazing artists -- including 6 acts from beyond city limits, headlined by Polaris nominated punks Metz and hometown electro-pioneer Venetian Snares. This year's festival will once again take place in 11 different venues throughout Winnipeg's downtown. The festival touches on many genres of music, from rock to hip-hop, folk to electronic and each show has been curated and placed in a specific venue in order to give the audience and artists a unique experience to that of the usual Manitoba music scene.
Festival passes are available now at Into the Music, Music Trader and online at ticketworkshop, and will get you into 13shows for $60 (only $54 with your Friends With Benefits Card!!), or you can pick and choose and pay at the door.
Winnipeg has two reputations across the country, one for having a great music scene, and the other for having a brutal winter. Big Fun combines these two elements to create a music festival that our prairie town can be proud of! Get primed for Big Fun and check out this year's festival sampler here!
Big Fun Productions is comprised of four Winnipeg musicians and music lovers who are passionate about their city. Inspired by the layout of Pop Montreal and NXNE, Big Fun aims to create the same excitement within the music and art community in Winnipeg by hosting several events throughout the year.
