BIG BANG Athens 2016
The European music festival for young people and the adventurous visitors 0-12 years old stops off for second year at the OCC!
Big Bang is an exciting festival of music for a young audience; as hosts of the event, major cultural centres in Europe will transform their venues into adventurous musical labyrinths. The young music-lovers who embark on the journey will experience a colourful musical programme featuring concerts, sound installations and workshops. At Big Bang, musicians working in different genres and styles search for the best way to present their music to children.
Big Bang isn’t just a festival aimed at children; it couldn’t exist without their participation. At every event, professional musicians set a dialogue in motion with young singers and instrumentalists and share the stage with them.
The Big Bang European network is the brainchild of Zonzo Compagnie from Belgium. The support of the European Union made it possible for cultural centres around the Europe to collaborate and to undertake and support a joint mission: to present the wonders of music in an imaginative and adventurous way which is accessible to children.
