For years, Big John Mills has been using his birthday celebrations to host fundraising concerts for local charities. After moving to Central Texas, John teamed up with Kent Finlay to create BIGfest as a showcase of Texas music and a fundraiser for the Cheatham Street Music Foundation.  Other recipients have been selected through the years, and the recipient of BIGfest fundraising for 2019 is School Fuel San Marcos (

BIGfest began as a simple one-day showcase during the summer of 2006. The event was a huge success, with more than 40 artists performing throughout the day including the headliners Randy Rogers and Brady Black. The response from both artists and fans was so overwhelming that the festival schedule was broadened to a three-day event.

Radio Free Texas began broadcasting the festival live in 2007. The Radio Free Texas broadcast has allowed tens of thousands of fans to listen to BIGfest live via the Internet, from all over the world.

Since 2006, BIGfest has donated over $90,000 to our fund raising activity recipients. Sponsors are the key to the festival’s continued success. Sponsor donations are used to underwrite the entire cost of the event, allowing 100% of the money raised through door donations, BIGfest t-shirts and artist’s merchandise, and the silent auction to go directly to the recipient of the fundraising efforts.

Your support is vital to the continued success of BIGfest!
