Big Music Fest Recap - Media Coverage



Big Music Fest returned to Kitchener for the second year in a row and we were there to cover the event.  This year's festival turned out to be a one day event, but they packed it with a lot of punch!
Big Music Fest began with last year's BREAKING BANDS winner THE MODERN HEARTS.  There is no doubt in my mind that you'll be hearing a lot more from this fantastic band in the upcoming months. 
Next up was the only group with a female band member, The Mohrs

Then we had The Mayor Of Kitchener aka @BerryOnline welcome everyone to Big Music Fest.

After that, the most energenic band of the day, THE GLORIOUS SONS set the tone for the rest of the festival.  They really got everyone up and moving during their set!

They even managed to get the crowd to sing along to MAMA (remember this was in the middle of the afternoon, when everyone was headed to the beer garden, so I call that a concert win for The Glorious Sons).

Then it was flashblack time, (remember I mentioned I went to their concert back when they first hit it big) with a high energy performance by EXTREME

Next came Canadian faves MONSTER TRUCK to stage.  They took the crowd by storm with their amp'd up show.

Then the crowd came pouring in when JANE'S ADDICTION hit the Big Music Fest stage.

and I was able to take what I have deemed as THE PIC OF THE DAY! Hello @DaveNavarro!

The show finished off with headliners SOUNDGARDEN, and with no encores (by any of the bands) it did leave the crowd wanting more.
While this year's Big Music Fest was very different from last year's event it still was a BIG WIN for Kitchener, Ontario Canada.  If more big name acts see that the Region of Waterloo supports the music scene then we will certainly see more bands wanting to play here.  Plus this gives young talent in the area more exposure to mentors in the music industry.  We see it as win-win for both musicians and fans!
