Sorry, this event’s been and gone
Big Day Out 2012

Now you can buy Big Day Out tickets for booking fees, delivery charges, processing fees or any extra costs.

For our 20th year we have chosen to rebuild the Auckland event from the ground up, with a goal of recapturing the magic of early Big Day Out shows. We are excited the bands are into the idea and we know you will be too. As always, the Big Day Out is ever evolving. We continue to support local musicians, DJ’s and artists in every city, making each Big Day Out a unique experience.

It’s not just about bands. Hitting the custom built 40 foot Big Day Out touring skate ramp will be some of the hottest skaters on the planet right now. There is always more to explore at the Big Day Out.

The Big Day Out prides itself on presenting the best, most outstanding artists in the world, and our second round of acts is no exception.

There are plenty of debut artists joining the BDO circus, from the never compromising Noel Gallagher, to the thunderous Nero performing with a full live band for the first time in New Zealand. From Brazil’s Cavalera Conspiracy, to the whacked out world of Das Racist, there are plenty of new pieces to complete the BDO puzzle.
