Music

The Littlegig experience is not about big headline acts that we rely on to draw crowds… it’s about a diverse collection of relevant musicians and DJs that move us in the environments we’ve created for them. There are no stages in the traditional sense, but 6 music areas that pop up and close as the festival journey progresses.
