But it’s not just about the music. With local food that offers a flavour explosion, from artisanal cheeses to the freshest catches. And the drinks? Locally crafted, because that’s how we roll. Sip on those craft brews and soak up the tunes and atmosphere.

The Big Sheep isn’t just a festival; it’s a vibe. Where music, local bites, and crafted drinks collide for a unique unforgettable experience.
