THE BIG DAY OUT (1994): The acts and a survivor's guide

When there is time, Elsewhere will be sourcing a rich vein of its archival material which was published in various places during the Eighties and Nineties which are not available on-line.

These will most often be reproduced as they appeared in print. Some may be a little fuzzy in the reproduction but we think the story or interview are worth it for researchers or fans.

Best read on a desktop or iPad than a phone.

This time the first Big Day Out in Auckland was looming and I caught it in Melbourne and tried to give readers an idea of what it was all about.
