Imagine the wonder of discovering a brand new world and then realizing you were home all along. Welcome back for the first time. BIG UPS!
High quality in smaller batches is a key component to our growth thus far. Booking music that we love and we know our friends and fans will love too is one of the greatest joys of this whole process. We love many kinds of music and know that it can all blend together like the perfect summer mix tape if its presented at the right time and place. A new year brings a new mixture, and new songs to set your memories to, and some familiar ones too. Being on the cutting edge of booking will continue to be a part of our approach just as it was when we booked Big Gigantic in 2010 and Abakus in 2011. We are very excited for what’s in store this year.
The Big Up is about creating the positive reality that we all strive to live daily. When we all come together for this one glorious weekend a year the positive forces converge for a cosmic blast off rarely seen on this planet. It all starts with you and the positive attitude you bring. We are truly all in this together.
