Big Ears is proud to once again partner with the Joy of Music School and Community School of the Arts to bring special opportunities to underprivileged and at-risk youth in the Knoxville area during the festival weekend. These organizations play an integral role in the community by providing a musical educational and mentorship to the disadvantaged that would not exist otherwise. The festival will be supporting the mission of these groups by coordinating hands-on musical experiences for the students throughout the weekend, in addition to providing a cash donation from each ticket sold to the event.
