The Big Gig 2024! Saturday 29th June

Horsham Sports Club 02:00 PM - 09:30 PM

Horsham's greatest family live music event.


We’re back for what promises to be another fantastic festival with some of the best live musicians and tribute acts in the area and beyond, coming together to provide a fun packed day of music, singing and dancing!

Get ready to experience some amazing acts, with our planned musical tribute line-up:


Going through the motions isn’t something Murdoch’s Crazy Eyes do. Live and performing without limits this seven-piece local band deliver extraordinary and irresistible funk, soul, punk, rock and cheese (but only the good cheese!). In fact they’re so good you’ll forget you’re watching a cover band at all!


The UK’s No.1 George Ezra tribute, Tom Morrison has the look, the musical skills, and the voice to pull off a wonderful tribute to a man rapidly becoming a modern British musical icon. Ezra’s anthemic, sing-a-long tunes are guaranteed crowd-pleasers, and Tom’s charismatic show is no exception. Tutored by Sir Paul McCartney, Tom gives a powerhouse performance that will leave you in no doubt as to why he’s been booked by some of the biggest venues around the world.


This fantastic tribute band will be playing all of your favourite Fleetwood Mac classics, including ‘Go Your Own Way’, ‘Dreams’ and ‘The Chain’ and showcasing the incomparable Stevie Nicks. With sell out tour dates around the UK and Europe you’re in for a real treat!


An authentic recreation of the one of the best female performers today. Kyla’s ‘ALMOST P!NK’ captures the powerful vocal technique and mannerisms that will leave you thinking you’re listening and watching the real deal. A fun, sexy, cool no-nonsense attitude that is ‘P!nk’.


Back by popular demand to headline this year, Kieran, is without doubt the closest sound alike to the real deal! Delivering live acoustic guitar playing, an accurate recreation of the sounds and all the cheeky charm of the real Ed this is the ‘must see’ act of the year! Kieran plays and sings completely live and is widely regarded as the No 1. soundalike to Ed Sheeran!
