100% ROCK MAG tapped for thoughts about Big Day Out leaving WA

| 4 February 2014 | Reply

100% ROCK MAGAZINE’s Editor Shane Pinnegar was tapped by The West Australian Newspaper’s Kate Ferguson at Sunday’s Big Day Out concert for his thoughts on the esteemed festival’s news that they “Won’t come back to Perth. Ever”.

Despite Big Day Out bosses sounding like cranky parents scolding an unco-operative child, CEO Adam Zammit has since confirmed that the festival is going ahead next year without Perth on it’s schedule.

Shane told Ferguson that “Big Day Out invented the big travelling music festival in the country,

“In the 90s, it made sense to have a diverse line-up, but now there’s Soundwave that all the heavy kids go to and Stereosonic that all the dance kids go to.

“They are carrying on with the niche that they created but it’s not working for them any more.

“It is the end of an era.”
