Big Adventure, coming to the OC Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa, CA on Saturday, November 3 and Sunday, November 4, is first and foremost about music, comedy, cosplay, gaming, sci-fi, fantasy, and comics… alright, perhaps that’s not “first and foremost.” But at the very least, you won’t ever be bored. Right off the bat, the lineup is stunning to look at.
On the live stage, we have the insane combination of Empire of the Sun, Modest Mouse, Phantogram, and Cold War Kids. On the dance stage, there’s no shortage of talented up-and-comers or legend acts when you’ve got Rusko, What So Not, Bonnie x Clyde, Ducky, Feed Me, Luca Lush, Bro Safari, Party Thieves, Chime, and Nitti Gritti all on one stage.
On the comedy stage, there’s Patton Oswalt and Jim Jefferies headlining, as well as Kristen Schaal from ‘The Last Man on Earth,’ Natasha Leggero from ‘Last Comic Standing,’ and Rhys Darby from ‘Flight of the Conchords.’
Beyond just the music and comedy, the event will also feature celebrity guests and panels, cosplay, video and tabletop gaming, live podcasts, and so much more.
Biting off more than they can chew? Perhaps, but this event is produced by SGE who have a proven track record of fantastic events like Lost Lands, Moonrise Festival, MUSINK, and more.
“More than just a comic con, more than just a festival, Big Adventure really is a one-of-a-kind celebration of pop culture and fandom in all forms,” says Big Adventure co-producer Rob Tweedie. “I’ve waited in my fair share of comic con lines over the years, sometimes even overnight. I love the tangible, face-to-face fan experience and the freedom to be yourself that the cons offer. Our goal is to combine that great sense of wonder and community with the excitement and energy of an outdoor festival to create an authentic entertainment event that is truly unique and out-of-this-world. Big Adventure has been a passion project for us at SGE for a while and we’re buzzing with excitement to see it come to life with all of you.”
Tickets to see any of the top live acts or comedy acts could run you close to $100, but even the ultimate VIP ticket for this event is just $250; Early Bird Single Day tickets start at only $39.50 (plus fees) and Early Bird Weekend tickets start at $69.50 (plus fees), while supplies last. It’s an absolute steal.
