About

Big Something’s annual Summer music festival and campout, The Big What? takes places over 3 nights in central North Carolina.

Now in its 6th year, The BIG What? has established itself as one of the best intimate festival experiences in the Southeast with an eclectic line up of musicians, artists, and vendors and a great community of music lovers that help create a friendly and imaginative environment with theme nights, costume contests and lots of southern hospitality.

Each year the festival features a musical and artistic adventure put together by the band members of Big Something. This includes multiple unique performances by Big Something plus many of their favorite regional and national touring bands in addition to a visual art gallery to showcase several up and coming visual artists.
