An unprecedented rush for tickets for Sydney’s Big Day Out on January 23 has meant that the entire first run of tickets, some 45,000 have sold out, after being on sale for less than one day. 10,000 more tickets have been allocated for the event, but given the massive demand for the festival, organisers have devised a ballot system to decide who gets the remaining 10,000 tickets. Big Day Out organisers will sell 1000 tickets each week for the next ten weeks through their website at www.bigdayout.com, with a weekly limit of two tickets per person. Registrations for the event take place at 9am AEST next Thursday October 16. Meanwhile, in important news for those wishing to go to the Gold Coast Big Day Out on January 18, organisers have revealed that tickets for that event will go on sale through the Big Day Out website from MIDNIGHT TONIGHT (Wednesday October 08).
