Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros have announced the creation and curation of their very own music and arts festival. Dubbed Big Top, the upcoming event will take place at Los Angeles’ Historic State Park across four nights Oct. 17-20, with performances taking place in the round under a traditional big top circus tent. In addition music, the festival will include a farmer’s market, beer garden, games, local artisan vendors, vadueville comedy, contortionists, acrobats, puppetry, and interactive performance art.

“These days a band is a fast machine, cramming in dates, cutting fat, making the most money it can,” says Edward Sharpe’s frontman Alex Ebert. “Far gone are the ancient days of the traveling troubadours, lingering in towns, meeting the people, entertaining for days. If you tour, or you have been to a ‘professional’ show, you may have had the sense that something is missing from the experience ... And so, here comes the idea of Big Top - a one-off experiment in reaching for a more colorful, soulful, way to tour.”

Tickets go on sale Aug. 9. Click here for more info.
