Downtown to Fill with Music of ‘Big Fun Festival’

Big Fun Festival

Forty local and out-of-town musical acts will play for a Winnipeg audience during the fourth annual Big Fun Festival later this month.

Running January 28 to February 1, music of all genres will be played at nine different venues throughout the downtown.

The 2015 line-up includes acts such as Dan Boeckner formerly of Wolf Parade and Handsome Furs fame, and local Juno Award-winning metal/hardcore band KEN mode.

The festival is being put on by Big Fun Productions and tickets are $60 for a pass. Select individual acts range from $12 to $15 and can be purchased at Into the Music, Music Trader and TicketWorkshop.com.

Inspired by the layout of Pop Montreal and NXNE, Big Fun aims to create the same excitement within the music and art community in Winnipeg by hosting several events throughout the year.
