Big Day Out festival returns to New Zealand

The annual music festival Big Day Out is set to return to Auckland in 2014, giving music fans a great reason to grab some cheap flights to New Zealand next year.

The festival, which currently only takes place in five Australian cities, is set to return to Auckland next year, after promoters decided not to run the music festival this year. The news has been well received in New Zealand, with music lovers across the country excited to hear that the country’s biggest music festival will be returning.  Speaking on the return of the music festival events promoter Campbell Smith said that he “strongly felt that there was real desire for the event to return to Auckland” following its cancellation last year. “After the dust had settled, and particularly given the feedback we'd received from fans, that they missed it, we started thinking about how it could be possible to do a show here, in a way that made sense for New Zealand. So it's not going to simply be the sixth Australian BDO, it's going to be a show that we will create and curate for this market,” added Smith. The Big Day Out festival was cancelled in New Zealand last year due to financial restraints, according to event organiser Ken West. However, the festival is set to return to the country in January next year, and if it is successful, will continue to run annually as it did before. The Big Day Out debuted in 1992 on Australia Day, a public holiday in Sydney. Since its inception Big Day Out has now expanded from Sydney to the Gold Coast, Adelaide, Melbourne, Perth and Auckland.
