Event Info

The 2022 Big Ears Festival — running Thursday, March 24 through Sunday, March 27 — brings together artists and music lovers from all over the world for four unforgettable days of musical adventure, discovery, and fun. The historic Tennessee Theatre is always a hub for activity at the festival and frequently hosts the most visible artists on the lineup.

Nestled in Knoxville’s intimate and historic downtown, festival goers are offered nearly 200 performances during the festival—at restored historic theaters, soaring churches, refurbished warehouse spaces, museums, galleries, and clubs—with pop-up events and performances, exhibitions, films, literary readings, workshops, markets and talks taking place in cafes, bars, hotels, restaurants, in alleyways and other nooks and crannies of the city. The festival experience is full of surprises.

A festival pass offers access to all publicly announced performances—enabling festival goers to not only see familiar artists that they know and love, but also to explore the music of artists with whom they are not already familiar.
