Big Day Out Approaches Sell-Out
Big Day Out Approaches Sell-Out With Last Ticket Release
All 43,000 pre-sale tickets to next week’s Big Day Out are expected to be sold by this Friday, making the Big Day Out a pre-sale sell-out for the second consecutive year.
The promoters have decided to release the last 2,000 gate sale tickets through Auckland and online outlets next week. These tickets are $140 + booking fees and will be available from Ticketek and Real Groovy Records.
“We traditionally hold the gate sales tickets for the day of the show but we’d like to gives people a last chance to get tickets without having to run the risk of coming to Mount Smart Stadium on the day of the show and missing out,” said Big Day Out promoter, Campbell Smith.
If these tickets are all sold through outlets before the Big Day Out on Friday 18 January, there will be no gate sales at the stadium on the day.
