Preview: The Big Up
August 5th-7th, 2010
The Big Up Festival brings three days of music, art and vibes to the fifteen hundred acre Sunnyview Farm in Ghent, NY. In addition to Four stages, The Big Up offers both wooded and field camping. The Big up is dedicated to providing "Music from across the country and around the world with visionary multimedia and visual artists collaborating to create a living landscape of musical entertainment, interactive art and sustainable initiatives in an intimate setting."
This year's line-up includes:
RAQ (2 sets), Pnuma Trio, Headtronics, OTT, Telepath, Big Gigantic, Eskmo, Emancipator, the Breakfast, Sub Swara, Kung Fu, Higher Organix and over 40 other groups will perform alongside innovative multimedia and performance artists in the “living landscape” of the Big UP.
If you're looking for a festival that brings a solid line-up to the table without the heavy cost of most summer fests, or a festival without a long walk from your tent to the stage through an overwhelming amount of people; The Big Up is the festival for you. This may be the most resonably priced festival of the year in regards to bang for your buck!
