25-26 MAY 2019
Multiple stages
Come through the doors of the Onassis Stegi and discover the wildest musical kaleidoscope. If your kids are between… 0 and 12 years old, there is a music festival made especially for them; sounds, tunes and beats that will intrigue them taking part into the adventure.
BIG BANG Festival is a festive ode to adventurous music and sound art for young audiences.

Our mission: To present the richness of music in an imaginative and adventurous way that is accessible to children. Every year, more than 3.000 children and their parents find their way to the festival and discover the richness and diversity of the world of music and sound.

BIG BANG is an exciting music festival for young audiences for whom we transform our venue into an adventurous musical labyrinth. On our journey, the young audience is faced with and will experience a colourful musical programme of concerts, installations and workshops. With BIG BANG musicians from different genres and styles explore the best way to present their music for children. BIG BANG is not just a festival for young audiences but also involves them as participants. Children sneak into scientists’ labs or into the belly of a guitar, rub balloons together, become orchestra conductors or just parade through the neighborhood to the sound of music.

BIG BANG creates a platform for artistic modern music programming specifically for children, in which contemporary styles of music have a place.
