Big Day Out 2014 dates have been leaked online following reports that the organizers are looking to change the venues for next year¡¯s summer festival circuit.
According to the music news outlet, Music Feeds, information regarding the festival popped up revealing dates in January and February, as well as the line-up announcement, reported to be on July 31st.
The reports also indicate that BDO are looking to expand across a number of cities, including a trip to New Zealand¡¯s Auckland for a revived show and a show on the Gold Coast.
There will be two shows in Sydney, which will be over the Australian Day long-weekend on January 26th and 27th. This isn¡¯t the first time that Sydney had two shows to its name, following similar runs back in 2004, 2010, and 2011.
The proposed show on the Gold Coast was given the all clear, with Metricon Stadium set to host the popular one-day festival.
The deal came after the Big Day Out CEO Adam Zammit and the Minister for Tourism and Major Events, Jann Stuckey agreed to have the show at the stadium, following the original hosting venue, the Parklands Showgrounds being closed, because of developments for the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
Venues for the Melbourne, Sydney and Perth shows have yet to be confirmed, but reports suggest that it could be set at the same stomping grounds that they were held at last year.
However, the venue in Adelaide is facing problems with reports that the City Council will move the festival to another site from its original location of the Showgrounds in Wayville, which has hosted the Adelaide leg since 1993. The line-up for the 2014 tour is set to be released on the 31st of July, so when we know more, so will you!
