I have watched for many years at the Sydney BDO selling out within 30mins and it makes me ask the question, Could we host a Big Day Out here in Canberra?
With so many headline acts in the country for the festival and cities such as the Gold Coast, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth (and Auckland) why doesn’t Australia’s biggest music festival have a presence in the nations capital?
Maybe something huge for EPIC (in addition to Summernats). Local tourism operators would be happy as it would bring people to Canberra during a usually quiet time of year (late Jan).
I’ll leave it open for comment rather than ramble on with my positive thoughts. ( … and there’s sure to be the odd grumble )
If you build it, they will come.
