Come to Mt Smart Stadium to experience what will be the last ever Big Day Out held in New Zealand.

It’s not just about bands. Hitting the custom built 40 foot Big Day Out touring skate ramp will be some of the hottest skaters on the planet right now. There is always more to explore at the Big Day Out.

The Big Day Out prides itself on presenting the best, most outstanding artists in the world, and our second round of acts is no exception.

There are plenty of debut artists joining the BDO circus, from the never compromising Noel Gallagher to the thunderous Nero performing with a full live band for the first time in New Zealand. From Brazil’s Cavalera Conspiracy to the whacked out world of Das Racist, there are plenty of new pieces to complete the BDO puzzle.

So let’s roll out the second round of artists to complete the picture:
NOEL GALLAGHER’S HIGH FLYING BIRDS
NERO (LIVE)
THE VACCINES
BASSNECTAR
CAVALERA CONSPIRACY
REGURGITATOR
KIMBRA
PARKWAY DRIVE
MIDNIGHT YOUTH
DAS RACIST
SIX60
MT EDEN
THE ADULTS
I AM GIANT
CAIRO KNIFE FIGHT
JAKOB
BULLETPROOF
JUNICA
@PEACE
DJ SIR-VERE
NICK D


For our 20th year we have chosen to rebuild the Auckland event from the ground up, with a goal to recapturing the magic of early Big Day Out shows. We are excited the bands are into the idea and we know you will be too.

One main stage, no D barricade, Skating & Skate stage in the main arena, Green stage, Boiler Room, Show ‘N’ Shine hot rod show brought to you by OnePercent magazine and much, much more! Plus it’s now a little cheaper than the East Coast Australian Shows, with booking fees included.

However, the need to reduce from two to one main stage means a couple of acts from the first announcement will not be able to perform at the Auckland Big Day Out.

Unfortunately Kanye West and Odd Future will not be appearing at the Auckland event and we thank them for their help, support and understanding in this change of plans.

This means for Auckland it will be:
NOEL GALLAGHER’S HIGH FLYING BIRDS, NERO (LIVE), THE VACCINES, BASSNECTAR, CAVALERA CONSPIRACY, REGURGITATOR, KIMBRA, PARKWAY DRIVE, MIDNIGHT YOUTH, DAS RACIST, SIX60, MT EDEN, THE ADULTS, I AM GIANT, CAIRO KNIFE FIGHT, JAKOB, BULLETPROOF, JUNICA, @PEACE, DJ SIR-VERE and NICK D

Who will now be joining:
SOUNDGARDEN, KASABIAN, MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE, THE LIVING END, BATTLES, GIRL TALK, ROYKSOPP, FOSTER THE PEOPLE, GIN WIGMORE, MARIACHI EL BRONX, CAGE THE ELEPHANT, BEST COAST, BEASTWARS, GHOSTWAVE, CUT OFF YOUR HANDS, DAVID DALLAS, UNKNOWN MORTAL ORCHESTRA & MAYAVANYA.

Plus the Tony Hawk BDO Vert Jam lineup has now been confirmed and we are stoked to announce that joining Tony Hawk will be vertical visionaries: Kevin Staab, Sandro Diaz, Jesse Fritsch and Neal Hendrix.

Of course the full picture is not complete without playing times, which are looking great and will be in your hot little hands soon. We are making them available ASAP and you can build log into www.bigdayout.com to build your own timetable and share with your friends via Facebook.
