London’s premier antipodean event! A welcome to summer full of friendly(ish) sporting competition, live bands, DJs, gourmet local and international food, drinks and all of the snacks you’ve missed from the Southern Hemisphere. Don’t let the sporting part fool you, this day starts early, but finishes late and is all about the really good times.
Australian and Kiwi expats get together with their international mates for sporting tournaments, live music and entertainment, all while tasting samples of beer, cider, and wine from New Zealand, Australia and afar. There’s our nod to dad’s backyard, where you’re transported back to your old man’s happy place, complete with backyard cricket, sausage sizzle and goon of fortune.
In a match made in heaven. Or maybe out of the trash behind a Brixton share house couch. Your favourite trash travel company has joined forces with Australian garage rock scumbags/powerhouses/cult heroes – Dune Rats – for a string of mayhem across Europe this summer, kicking off in London at Big Day Out!
Following last year’s success with Yolanda Be Cool, who played in 2018, we are committed to going bigger and better! Alongside these Aussie punk legends we’ll have the winner of Stoke’s inaugural Soundcheck ‘Battle of the Bands’, with more live acts and DJs TBA.
This is the place where the down under diaspora gets together, a chance to mingle with like-minded expats, a long day spent sports-side sipping on whatever’s your poison you like, working up the courage to chat to the hottie you make eyes at on the Hammersmith and City line. Can’t wait to see you there!
