Press Release:


In a late blast and flurry Big Day Out is excited to announce three new artists to the 2014 lineup.

So without any further ado…

We have replaced our departing Brit pop band with other members of English rock ’n’ roll royalty BEADY EYE, who are heading to New Zealand for the first time ever. Founded in 2009 by Oasis members Liam Gallagher, Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock and Kasabian‘s Jay Mehler, BEADY EYE have picked up where Oasis left off, traversing the globe and bringing their sing-a-long anthems Down Under for Big Day Out 2014.

We are thrilled that “one of metal’s most consistently respected and revered bands,” (Metal Hammer) DEFTONES are joining in the festivities this summer. They will be adorning and crushing us with their internationally renowned live show featuring tracks from their latest album Koi No Yokan, all the way to the trailblazers from White Pony.

Our favourite Swedes THE HIVES are making their return to New Zealand, bringing with them their well-documented high-energy live performance, which NME says “Somehow it seems completely, theatrically rehearsed and flamboyantly anarchic at the same time.”

Any ticketholders unsatisfied with the alteration to the lineup can apply for immediate refund (available until Monday January 6, 2014) by following the instructions provided in the news section of BDO website.
