It's a supersonic boom in your living room

January 28, 2021

On February 13 and 14, the internationally renowned BIG BANG festival is coming to the National Arts Centre for the third straight year. This time the extremely popular sound and music festival for the whole family will be presented in a completely digital format. Mini concerts, online radio, interactive dance parties, a podcast, playlists and more: the BIG BANG's got you covered for the entire weekend! Programming of this special edition is entirely free and will be available online so that children and families can join in from home. Be sure to make some space in your living room for all the BIG BANG fun coming your way!

“The BIG BANG has undergone a transformation: this year, it’s finding new ways to tickle your ears,” said Mélanie Dumont, festival program director and Associate Artistic Director of Youth Programs for NAC French Theatre. “However, the spirit of the festival hasn’t changed a bit. Even in digital format, it will be fun, unifying and musically brilliant.”

Since its very first edition, the BIG BANG festival has attracted thousands of families to the National Arts Centre for a musical experience like no other! This year’s digital edition will allow the BIG BANG to expand its reach beyond the National Capital Region and to bring together curious minds and ears from all across Canada.
