The BIG BANG festival is a festive tribute to adventurous sound art and music-making for children. It began twenty years ago with the OORSMEER festival in Ghent. The labyrinthine Vooruit building in Ghent was filled to capacity with adventurous musicians and sound installations. A large young audience witnessed the resounding launch. OORSMEER was the beginning of a new chapter in the musical landscape for children. Twenty years later, and under its new name BIG BANG, OORSMEER has conquered the world from Hamburg to Lisbon, from Ghent to Sao Paulo, from Athens to Seville, from Antwerp to Stavanger and from Brussels to Lille.
