With a powerful sound that is both refreshingly original and yet classic in its approach, BIG Something fuses elements of rock, pop, funk, hip hop and improv, in order to take listeners on a journey through a myriad of musical styles. Formed in 2009, Big Something is one of the most exciting new rock bands to emerge from the southeast. The band features Nick MacDaniels (guitars, vocals), Doug Marshall (bass), Josh Kagel (keys, synth, trumpet), Casey Cranford (sax, EWI), Jesse Hensley (lead guitar), and Ben Vinograd (drums).

With the help of Grammy-Nominated producer John Custer the group recorded and released their 2010 debut concept album, Stories from the Middle of Nowhere, which quickly captured Home Grown Music Network’s 2010 Album Of The Year Award and spent several months at number 1 on the jambands.com radio charts. Stories from the Middle of Nowhere was followed up by the widely well-received live album, Live from Uranus, as well as 2013’s Self-Titled which captured 3 different album of the year awards. Most recently the band released their highly 3rd full length studio album Truth Serum on Nov. 4th, 2014 featuring a special guest appearance from NYC turntablist DJ Logic.

After several years of relentless touring, Big Something has performed across the country as direct support for the likes of Galactic, moe., The B52s, Robert Randolph and The Family Band, Zach Deputy, DJ Logic, Toubab Krewe, Dopapod, and countless other up and coming artists. In turn, they have become a high demand festival act, and have appeared at FloydFest, Camp Barefoot, Blackwater, Shakori Hills Grassroots Festival, Pink Moon, Strangecreek, Wormtown, Mantrabash, Smilefest, NC Music & Arts Festival, Front Porch Fest, Domefest, and many more. BIG Something also hosts their own annual summer music festival and campout in Mebane, NC called The Big What?, which has sold out two years in a row, further propelling this imaginative, entertaining, and musically progressive jamband rooted in traditional American music of the southeast to a much wider national audience.

Sharing our vision of sustainable festivals along with the experience of a lifetime.

WILD THINGS - We can't thank you all enough for sharing in what was surely our favorite Wild Woods to date. Every year our family grows and this year was no exception; from our old friends The Reliquarium, Brainwave Laser & FX, LLC, Sonic Beating, Encore Event Services, LLC and VII Studios, to our new friends Rhizome NYC, Sermon, Hennessey Sound Design, to our amazing performers headed up by Katie Rose and our new staff members, y'all are the most talented group of creators and problem solvers the Northeast has to offer. This was the smoothest year yet all thanks to the synchronicity and flexibility between our crews.

Collectively working ourselves down to our bones is all made worthwhile when we get to look out and see all of your smiling faces in the crowd. Five years have gone by in the blink of an eye and we are amazed by the growth, lessons, and friends we've gained along the way. To simply leave it at "thank you" is perhaps the greatest understatement of all time.

We love you all!

-Ryan, Dan, and Jeff
