Big Day Out Special 2014

Around 40,000 people streamed through the gates yesterday for the first Big Day Out to be held at Western Springs, an idyllic central Auckland park nestled somewhere between the suburbs of Grey Lynn and Kingsland. Music 101 reporters Sam Wicks and Nick Atkinson were both relishing the chance to attend the event without having to grind their way out to Mount Smart Stadium, the Big Day Out's old home on a dull industrial estate in South Auckland. They also found plenty of other Aucklanders in love with the new venue, including The Naked And Famous, just back from a long stint living in LA and touring the globe.
