Dear Big Ears Family –
Yes, things are moving fast! And, yes, tickets to Big Ears 2019 are available starting today!!!
We’ve barely had time to calm down in the two months since Big Ears 2018 and here we are…already gearing up for 2019.
We’re over the moon about your response to the 2018 festival. The glowing reviews and enthusiasm from everyone has been thrilling and inspiring, to say the least, and, as a result, the planning and programming for 2019 is well under way. We really cannot wait to tell you about it – so, rather than keep it under wraps, we’ve decided to start sharing the details of what’s coming next year sooner, rather than later.
Instead of announcing the majority of the line up all at once later in the year, we’re going to announce a few artists at a time – with the first announcement coming in just a few weeks. Additions to the line up – along with more festival programs and details – will continue to be unveiled throughout the summer, culminating in the full lineup release this fall.
We will also have other exciting details about the festival to share with you. And we are creating new Big Ears experiences for 2019 – special programs, opportunities to interact and engage with artists, performers, and other festival attendees, and enhancements to all levels of the Big Ears experience.
In addition, we’ve recently launched the Friends of Big Ears donor benefits program, our way of saying thanks to individual donors and supporters of the Big Ears Festival non-profit. Click here to learn how to support our work with your gift, and unlock special experiences at the festival and perks along the way – including at 10% discount on 2019 passes.
We’re very grateful to have such an active, engaged and thoughtful audience. Your comments and suggestions – in response to our survey as well as via email and letters – have been invaluable in helping to inform and guide us in our planning for next year’s festival. Keep it coming, please! We very much take your observations to heart.
We’re putting tickets on sale today for those who are so committed they don’t need to see a line up to make their decision about attending in 2019. While supplies last, we’re offering weekend passes at all levels at 2018 prices. As the line up is announced – and the details of special programs are shared – these ticket prices will increase in the coming weeks and months, so don’t risk disappointment – act now!
We have an amazing weekend taking shape for 2019. It’s going to be another mind-blowing experience.
In the meantime, we hope you have a great summer.
Stay in touch!
Executive Director, Big Ears Festival
