Big Day Out 2015 cancelled

THE Big Day Out music festival will not return to the Gold Coast in 2015, after it was bought by an American-owned company.

C3 Presents, who also own the popular Lollapalooza festival in the US, confirmed the news in a statement.

“C3 Presents is proud to own Big Day Out, one of the most iconic and established festival brands in the world. While we intend to bring back the festival in future years, we can confirm there will not be a Big Day Out in 2015,”  the statement read.


“We love working on BDO and are excited about the future,” they added. However, the company would not set a timeline for when the long-running summer festival would return, nor commit to the event’s traditional run of cities: Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Gold Coast, and Auckland.”

The company has not yet confirmed when or where the event would return.
