  • Big Day Out 2010 in Auckland

    On Friday 15 Jan I attended Big Day Out 2010 in Auckland.

    This is only my second BDO ever, and this time I went armed with knowledge from my last one:
    - Food lines are terrible, so this time I brought along my own lunch and dinner. This saved at least an hour of my day.
    - Toilet lines are average, but usually there is one part of the stadium which is under-utilized (this time, it was the ones under the east stand).
    - If there is a huge line for one service somewhere else, it's likely there isn't somewhere else.
    - By default, I was very likely to stay seated in the same place for at least the last two sets of the night. I forced myself into the crowd instead this year.

    The day overall went really well. The whole day progressed very smoothly, there were no big gaps of boring nobody artists, nor extreme peaks of amazingness. The weather was beautiful all day, although a little too hot and humid for some of it. I saw far too many bands - 28!!! - so this review is going to be huge.
