Big Adventure to combine music, comedy, cosplay, comic fest, and more

A new type of festival is hitting Orange County. Big Adventure will showcase music, comedy, cosplay, gaming, sci-fi, fantasy, comic con and more on November 3rd and 4th.

Musical acts include Empire of the Sun, Modest Mouse, Phantogogram, Cold War Kids, Echos, NVDES, Allie X, and Party Nails for the event, which will be at the OC Fair and Events Center in Costa Mesa.

The event will also include a comic con exhibitor village, a marketplace with a variety of handmade and exclusive items, carnival rides and games, and wandering cosplay performers.

Big Adventure also boasts a solid lineup of comedians including Patton Oswalt, Jim Jefferies, Baron Vaughn, Emo Philips, Hari Kondabolu, Kristen Schaal, Mario Bamford, Natasha Leggero, Rhys Darby, and Ron Funches.

“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.” said co-producer of Big Adventure, 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.”

Single day passes are $40, Two-day are $70. They go on sale Friday, July 13 at 10 am.
