Big Bang Festival

Adventures in Sound for the Whole Family

February 17-18, 2019

The name says it all: the BIG BANG Festival will blow your socks off! The adventure features a performance by the NAC Orchestra, three virtuoso jazz musicians in an interactive and youthful take on Miles Davis, a dynamic marching band, a journey through all kinds of weird sound machines, and many other surprises. All of this energy at the NAC will put some much-needed colour into the winter doldrums.

Friendly – Fun – Inspired - For 5-year-olds and up

The BIG BANG Festival is two days of exciting sound experiments for the whole family. Come along and experience the fascinating world of music, sound and the arts, through all kinds of lighthearted and innovative activities and concerts. BIG BANG, which is already presented in many European countries and is one of the most successful children's festivals in the world, will make its North American debut in Ottawa! The NAC team is busy putting together a stunning array of outstanding Canadian performers, with a few impressive international artists to spice things up! The festival's many colourful free events and concert hall performances will open up a whole world of musical discovery.
