Big Day Out Australia sells out in record time

Australia Australia | 21 October 2009

This includes two Sydney shows following a ticket cock up that allowed eager festival-goers to buy passes to the festival 12 hours before they were supposed to go on sale, forcing bosses to add a second date.

Speaking about the news, festival director Ken West said: “Well I guess the recession is officially over. For our first Big Day Out in January 1992, the first day’s sales were a grand total of 57 tickets. At the time I thought that was okay. It is unbelievable that over 250,000 tickets would be snapped up in a few days for the 2010 shows.”

Muse will headline Big Day Out (AUS) 2010 which will tour Sydney, Gold Coast, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth from 17-31 January.
