Summer events in Australia don’t get much bigger or better than the annual hedonistic gathering of music and dance that is Big Day Out. Coming to the Gold Coast this coming Sunday, January 19, this year is proving to not only bigger and better than ever but also a sharp reminder why the Gold Coast is the best place to party in the nation.

The lineup for this year includes the likes of Pearl Jam, Arcade Fire, Snoop Lion (we know, right!), Major Lazer, Flume, Rüfüs and Portugal.

Ticketing is split in to two categories – standard and Like A Boss. The Like A Boss ticketing system is basically your VIP ticket that guarantees your access to exclusive viewing areas, bars, presents and best of all you get your own dunnies. ‘STRAYA C%$#S!

The Big Day Out has become an institution amongst Australia’s events scene, bringing out some of the biggest and newest names in music and piling them together in the one venue. No other event beats them in size, diversity and the capacity to give you an insight in to the depths of the Australian psyche…tinnies, Bundy Rum, Southern Cross tattoos and some of the thickest, most conditioned mullets you will ever have the pleasure to brush up against. Enjoy.


The Big Day Out is on Sunday, January 19 at the Metricon Stadium and Carrara Parklands. To get your tickets, head here.
