What is Big Show?
Big Show calls Cal State Northridge home, having put down its roots in the heart of campus since 2000. Big Show has come a long way, but one thing stays constant: the event has always been produced by and for the students. There’s always been a passion for rocking responsibly, and Big Show these days is no different.
13 years and counting
As the show has grown up, it’s also grown out. Big Show now incorporates an ever-more diverse array of artists from hip-hop to electronic, and more. Fans can find a place to express their creativity with the art wall, grab some grub at the various food trucks, peruse light sculptures and other interactive activities, and – of course – rock out to some of the best music in the world. And it’s only going to get better from here. These last 13 years have been a nice ride, come be a part of the tradition.
