    Hmmmm… the squonk factor!

    Squonking in New England? OR Squonking in the Mid Atlantic region? I do believe it is universal?!

    OR perhaps 'Like father, Like son'

    Hmmmmm

    Your decision may be made for you by the town council or whoever..... This was a big topic of conversation at the show I saw last night with many Big Ears attendees; is it likely to be scrubbed or not?

    I think in the case of SXSW, there was some sort of petition going around to cancel it as well as major sponsors/players pulling out. If that's not taking place with Big Ears, then good chance it moves forward.

    That said, as you suggest, liability and pressure come into play. It may not be the organizer's decision, but the town. Interesting times...

    I feel that the decision will be made by the town, not the organizer.

    I'm waiting/watching to see what happens.

    It's an international fest with artists coming from everywhere, and drawing a crowd from everywhere. There's also a marathon happening right on top of Big Ears so that means more peeps in super close proximity (https://knoxvillemarathon.com/race-information/).

    Big Ears is one of my favorite weekends and I'd love to NOT see it canceled. But I'm also thinking about the visit with my parents a week later, and what I might risk bringing back as an unwanted souvenir from the festival.

    That's a drag, she was definitely on my short list of "most wanting to see" artists this year.

    BIG EARS FESTIVAL / COVID-19 CANCELLATION

    It has become clear that we must cancel Big Ears 2020, scheduled for the weekend of Thursday, March 26 thru Sunday, March 29.

    Just 48 hours ago, we were optimistic that there was a path forward; but with events surrounding COVID-19 developing rapidly along with the obvious need for urgent steps to contain its spread, we simply cannot move forward with the festival as scheduled.

    This has been a tough decision. Not only is the principle that “the show must go on” woven into our DNA, but the impact of this cancellation on the community that makes Big Ears possible — the artists, the festival attendees, our staff and production teams, and the Knoxville community with all of its businesses and workers — cannot be overstated.

    We will be offering refunds to all ticket purchasers (assuming you purchased your tickets from our authorized vendor, Front Gate). Within the next day or two, we will be emailing ticket holders with information about the process for securing your refund.

    We are grateful to those of you who have inquired about converting your ticket purchase to a tax-deductible donation. This is indeed possible and we will include details about that option as well.

    We are very grateful for the kind words and support that we have received from so many of you. We believe in Albert Ayler’s proclamation that “music is the healing force of the universe” with all of our heart and soul. A mere two weeks ago, the New York Times called Big Ears “…one of the world’s greatest music bashes.” We will be back to live up to that accolade as soon as we possibly can. At the moment, it is too early for us to assess if we may be able to reschedule the festival for sometime later in 2020; for now, we need to pause and refocus.

    These are difficult times. We urge you to stay healthy and do whatever you can to help one another and to make this a better world. We’re counting on you.

    Please stay in touch.

    Peace and love,


    Ashley Capps
    Founder / Executive Director of Big Ears Festival

    Sigh. I hope for next year. This could be a big stake in the heart.

    You could say that about almost anything at this point: restaurants, conventions, tours, cruises, etc etc etc.
