Real Groovy’s Big Day Out Signing Tent

Real Groovy’s Big Day Out Signing Tent

According to 19 year-old Rebecca Bardoux, no Big Day Out is complete without the chance to collect an autographed CD from one of your favourite artists at the Real Groovy Signing Tent.

“Last year I didn’t even have to spend like more than a few minutes in the queue which was fine anyway ‘cause my friend Taylor Hayes wanted to be with me and so we didn’t even need to text each other while we were together and we also saw Nicky Watson while we were waiting there.. She was talking to a security guy ‘cause she was looking for the singing tent, which I think is on the other side of the stadium isn’t it? And anyway I left Mt Smart with two signed CDs plus all the guys from Muse had written stuff around my piercings and the Rabble had autographed my tattoo.”

Line up this year at the Real Groovy Records Signing Tent up on the top field alongside the Green Stage to collect autographs from a swag of Big Day Out bands wherever you want them.
