Two days for Sydney in 2014!
For 19 years, Adelaide’s Showgrounds have been home for the Big Day Out, but 2014 could see a change of scene for the event. A request from the festival to the Adelaide City Council could see Big Day Out move over to the 17-hectare Bonython Park. The downside for Adelaide is that the entire area
Victoria Police are seeking the power to deny entry to festival ticketholders who have been caught in possession of illicit substances. As reported by The Herald Sun, police in Victoria have busted more than 420 festivalgoers for drug-related offences over the Australian summer festival period, beginning in December 2012.

Band to return for second tour of 2013
Out of the blue, Foals have launched a scathing assessment of fellow countrymen Enter Shikari, labelling the post-hardcore mad dogs as “trampoline jumping twats”. Nationality may have been the only two things the band seemed to have in common, but it now appears they also share a twisted sense of humor. About 4 hours ago,

New beginnings are always filled with interest and intrigue. And that was at the forefront of my mind as I arrived at Flemington yesterday for the Melbourne leg of this year’s Big Day Out. After all the behind-the-scenes drama and partnership splits that overshadowed last year’s 20th birthday celebrations, I was curious as to whether
What a difference five years and playing in your bass player’s city of birth on Australia’s national day makes.
Photos have emerged on social media of Carlton AFL player Mitch Robinson being restrained in what looked like a messy brawl at the Melbourne leg of the Big Day Out yesterday.

Perpare yourselves Perth, as the Big Day Out torch has now been handed to you as the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Killers and all the rest make their way to your city.

As per announcements from both Big Day Out and House Vs Hurricane, the band’s scheduled performance at the Melbourne leg has now been moved due to an external transport problem, which also effected the media. According to our man in the field, Kiel, the truck carrying House Vs Hurricane’s gear broke down en route to
The Coroner spearheading the inquest into the 2009 death of a fan at Big Day Out Perth will be visiting the event on Monday to take note of the festival’s operations.

In a recent interview with The Age, Big Day Out top dog Ken West has explained that organisers took a “a ground-up rebuild” approach to the festival and while that means attracting new fans it also means bringing back the old ones. The growing trend of a much younger crowd appears to be somewhat offputting
The Age has reported that police will be attending the Melbourne leg of Big Day Out in force. As part of a massive police crackdown on violence on Australia Day, Victoria Police Assistant Commissioner Andrew Crisp has warned partygoers that they will be watching.

It would appear an external contractor hired by Big Day Out to preside over the big-screen TV at the festival’s Gold Coast stopover went mad with power. That’s really the only excuse we can come up with as to why the “the rogue contract technician” thought it would be a good idea to try and
A single man sat in one of Oxford Art Factory’s trademark brick inlets at the back of the Main Room, his head snapped painfully back against the ledge, half resting on the lip of his skateboard. He slept undisturbed through the thumping drum ‘n’ bass and grime that warmed the audience up in the final
