The goal of the Big Fun Festival is to present multiple genres of music over the course of a five day festival. The majority of the artists are based out of Manitoba, with the exception of a few from across Canada. Manitoba maintains a reputation for having a rich artistic community as well as a bitter winter. The Big Fun Festival brings these two elements of our Province together to create an annual festival our city can be proud of.
The festival will run from Wednesday evening to Sunday afternoon. There are a variety of events taking place throughout the weekend in close proximity to each other so that festivalgoers can travel between the shows. The festival wraps up with a roots/folk Hangover breakfast show on Sunday. Shows on the same evening are staggered and are distinct in sound and delivery so that you can have many different experiences all in one Big Fun weekend.
Big Fun Productions is comprised of 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.
