Big Bang Festival

February 13-14, 2021

A supersonic boom in your living room

For the curious kid in everyone, from age 5 and up

This year, the Big Bang is coming to you! Mini concerts, online radio, interactive parties, podcast, playlists… The programming of this special edition is entirely free and available online so everyone can join in! Cancelling our winter sonic boom was simply not an option, so we’re launching the musical adventure into the Webosphere, where you and your family can partake live! Be sure to make some space in your living room for all the Big Bang fun coming your way! Note: This is a pyjama-friendly event.
