Future of Gold Coast Big Day Out secured

THE next three Big Day Out events will be held at Metricon Stadium, according to the State Member for Gaven Dr Alex Douglas MP.

“I’ve been advised today by the Minister for National Parks, Recreation, Sport and Racing that the Big Day Out (pictured courtesy of news.com.au) will be at the stadium until 2017,” he said.

“The Minister has promised that the stadium operators, Gold Coast Suns, will continue to engage with local residents regarding the potential impacts of any major events that are brought to the stadium in future.”


“There are no other music events scheduled at Metricon.

“Gold Coast Suns operates the stadium on behalf of the AFL, which has leased the venue from Stadiums Queensland. The club has entered into an agreement with the Big Day Out event organisers.
