JANUARY 28TH to 30th, 2016

 

The big event, literally. The instant classic. BIG Winter Classic takes over the old Electric Avenue when the days are shortest and lights it up once more. Two venues, five stages, one kick ass VIP lounge all packed in to four days AND an endless imagination of craft beer collaborations and 25+ bands. Get your early-bird tickets at BONO and don't miss out.
