Prepare for The Big Day Out 20th Anniversary!

The Big Day Out headquarters are Buzzing with excitement as they approach the 20th Anniversary of the music festival and you could win tickets to this amazing event! Yes, 2012 will be the TWENTIETH year that the Big Day Out has been held!

It’s hard to believe it was over 20 years ago when Nirvana, The Violent Femmes, Massappeal, Beasts of Bourbon, Celibate Rifles, Died Pretty, Rat Cat, The Clouds, Yothu Yindi, Club Hoy, Cosmic Psychos, Falling Joys, Sound Unlimited Posse, Box the Jesuits, Hellmen, The Village Idiots, You Am I, Smudge, The Meanies, Welcome Mat and The Hard Ons with Henry Rollins all performed the first of what was to become the biggest touring festival in the world.

Hasn’t time flown? While they can’t give you any hints about the EPIC 2012 line-up (yet) they can re-live the past – and what a wonderful ride it has been.

While the team is busy sifting through and dusting off a bunch of Big Day Out nostalgia, they wondered what souvenirs fans have kept from their Big Day Out experiences and thought the best way to find out was through this awesome competition.


Send the team what you’ve collected over the years for the chance to win a major prize of two tickets to the 2012 Big Day Out, a Motorola DEFY handset (the ultimate Big Day Out proof smartphone), a $500 gift voucher to General Pants, a Converse pack of shoes, T-Shirt, Hoodie and socks, a case of Lipton Iced Tea, a case of V Energy Drink, five amazing rock n roll books from Hachette Australia including Keith Richards’ “Life”, the Led Zeppelin biography “When Giants Ruled the Earth”, Vince Neil’s “Tattoos and Tequila”, Mick Wall’s “Appetite for Destruction” and “Popcorn” by Garry Mulholland! Ten runners up will each win ten CD’s of various Big Day Out 2011 acts.

The Big Day Out team are looking for: photos, set lists, merchandise, tickets, programs, footage, stories … you name it, they wanna see it!

If you have souvenirs of previous Big Day Out festivals, email a picture/link of them to the team at [email protected]
