Part of the nation's biggest community music festival, working with the Yurt Lush cafe, we want to host an Our Big Gig event at Creative Common in Bristol from 11-13 July

Bristol Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

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
  • Programme 4 hours of free live musical performance
  • Erect a "tipi" stage that a diverse range of local performers can play
  • Set up market stalls for community organisations
  • Run DJ workshops
  • Musical activities for children
  • Poetry slams
  • Bring Creative Common back to life
  • 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 have an organising committee of 5
  • We have access to 10 volunteers and will actively encourage the recruitment of more
  • We will work with community organisations to find musicians who want to play on our stage
