Big Scary Monsters is an independent label based in Oxford, England. It has so far been responsible for releases from the likes of American Football, Modern Baseball, La Dispute, The Get Up Kids, Jamie Lenman, Beach Slang, Delta Sleep, Minus The Bear, Martha, mewithoutYou, Kevin Devine, Orchards, Balance and Composure, Cursive, Pedro The Lion, Andrew W.K., Tall Ships, Toe, Pulled Apart By Horses, Meet Me In St Louis, Joyce Manor, Gnarwolves, We Were Promised Jetpacks, Bear vs Shark, Tangled Hair... We could go on.
For ten years we hosted a 5-a-side football tournament, pulling together the "sporting elite of the music industry" in what can only be described as a tired embarrassment of people who "used to be good when they were 12". The tournament came to a close in 2018 after the record of at least one broken bone every year became too much to handle.
In 2018, no longer content with just putting up with shit from bands on the record label side, BSM launched it's own festival in London. Unbelievably, we doubled down in 2019 and started one in our hometown of Oxford, too.

Girls and money.
We like them all exactly the same. Except maybe a couple of them. But we're not telling you which.
Got drunk, sent an email, professed our love, went for dinner, talked about Mr Bean, hatched a plan, won some money in a Fantasy Football league, spent it on square-shaped vinyl, the end.
