The BIG SHO’ isn’t just a music festival. It’s an experience – a crossover of street culture combined with the circus, stripped of the elements that earned its historically negative reputation. Vintage in aesthetics but not in principle. A healing rejuvenation for the scars of the past and a portal into the present soul. A reclamation of what it means to exist without fear of restraint; in a way that recognizes oneself and others for who we are. Humans.
