20 YEARS OF HANDCRAFTED FESTIVALS

 

Big Day Out was created to level the playing field and prove that the title ‘alternative’ didn’t stop music from being popular. It has now changed the local musical landscape forever, growing from its ambitious, chaotic beginnings to evolve into the largest travelling festival in the world complete with all the highs and lows of a roller coaster.

So beyond the statistics and the history, it is what the BDO stands for that will enable it to continue to be a world-class event. Shows that will stand the test of time and continue to reflect both musically and culturally as a backdrop to peoples’ lives.

In short, you’ve got to know where you’re from to know where you’re going…

The goal of BDO is always to deliver the ultimate platform for artists to play to huge crowds alongside some of the most important acts in the world, to the best audiences in the world.

Looking back to the first BDO in Sydney in 1991 only 2 acts were announced and only 52 tickets were sold on the first day. Last year announced 41 acts were announced and 52,000 tickets were sold in an hour.
