 A 6 piece powerhouse with a sound that is both unique and timeless, BIG Something fuses elements of rock, pop, funk, and improvisation to take listeners on a journey through a myriad of musical styles. It’s no secret why this group has quickly become one of the most exciting new bands to emerge from the Southeast. Soaring guitars, synths, horns and alluring vocal hooks rise to the top of their infectious collection of songs and represent a sound that has caught the ears of such revered Summer circuit stalwarts as Umphrey’s McGee, Galactic, moe., Robert Randolph, and even The B52s who have all tapped Big Something as direct support.

Recently the band has released their 4th full-length studio album, Tumbleweed, which was recorded once again with the help of grammy nominated producer and Carolina Music Awards Lifetime Achievement recipient – John Custer (Corrosion of Conformity). He has produced all of their albums including 2014’s Truth Serum, which was named Album of the Year by The Homegrown Music Network, making Big Something the only band ever to win this award 3 times with 3 different releases (2010, 2013, and 2014).

As founders and hosts of The BIG What?, the band will perform all 3 nights of the festival. Expect lots of surprises, special guests, and the unveiling of some brand new material! Plus you’ll be able to find all of the band members hanging out on site throughout the weekend – welcoming you at the gate, sitting in with other bands, and stirring up as much nonsense as possible!
