Remember back in July when the gang from Big Day Out announced they’d be rolling out a second Sydney date to cope with the extraordinary line-up of artists? Scratch that. This morning they’ve revealed that the second day (Monday January 27) has been removed from the schedule with the entire day being merged into the Sunday January 26 festivities.
“Perhaps we were a bit ambitious expanding to two dates in Sydney for this year’s Big Day Out,” organisers said in a statement.
Fans who’ve purchased tickets for the January 27 date will simply need to turn up a day early, obtain a full refund before October 30 or exchange their ticket for an alternative Big Day Out show – in Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide or Gold Coast.
Headlining in 2014 are the likes of Pearl Jam, Arcade Fire, Blur, Snoop Dogg (or is that Snoop Lion?), Major Lazer, Steve Angello and Flume.
