Our Big Gig is a community music celebration taking place across the UK from the 11th - 13th July 2014. This annual event brings communities together to improve community cohesion and inspire people to take part in music making opportunities in their local area.

Our event at Creative Common would be free to attend, offer 4 hours of music performance from a wide range of musicians, bands, DJs and artists, offer music making opportunities to participants and bring a range of diverse communities in Bristol together through music.

What we'll deliver:

  • Deliver an Our Big Gig event at Creative Common
  • Poetry slams
  • Programme 4 hours of free live musical performance
  • Set up market stalls for community organisations
  • Bring Creative Common back to life
  • Erect a "tipi" stage that a diverse range of local performers can play
  • Musical activities for children
  • Run DJ workshops
  • Support local businesses and the local economy
  • World food cooking & nutrition demos from the Yurt Lush kitchen

Why it's a great idea:

Our Big Gig hosted over 336 events last year across the UK with over 200,00 attending. We would like to be a part of Our Big Gig 2014 and put on a music based event that people of all ages and backgrounds can enjoy.

Running over World Cup final weekend, we want to host an event that celebrates cultures and music from all over the world.

Steps to get it done:

  • We will work with community organisations to find musicians who want to play on our stage
  • We have access to 10 volunteers and will actively encourage the recruitment of more
  • We have an organising committee of 5
