The BiG BLDG non-profit was founded seven years ago with the purpose of organizing a yearly festival (The BASH) that celebrated the artists and musicians of Seattle!
All work at The BASH was done by volunteers and all proceeds from tickets, merchandise, and drink sales were distributed evenly to the artists that performed. To date, BiG BLDG has organized 6 The BASH festivals, raising over $100,000 for artists and community organizations. Some of our amazing BASH bands have included Beverly Crusher, Wild Powwers, High Pulp, and Terror/Cactus!
We know how to work hard here at BiG BLDG, but we also know how to play hard. Last year’s BASH had food trucks, a beer garden, over 40 + bands, and 5 stages! This year, our 2020 festival was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but we still have hope for next year. Check out some awesome THE BASH testimonials and photos below!
