On the 18th of January, Big Day Out will be rocking Sydney yet again with a huge line up for 2013. The festival is Australia's own and one of its largest, with a crowd of 50,000 people on average.

The annual event houses Australia's best home grown talent as well as some of the biggest international artists from around the world. The festival celebrates a variety of music, contemporary rock, electronic music, mainstream international acts.

This year will be the best yet! With bands such as Red Hot Chili Peppers The Killers Yeah Yeah Yeahs Vampire Weekend The Bloody Beetroots Kaskade Animal Collective Band of Horses B.o.B Sleigh Bells Foals and many more!

It is definitely something to be excited about- and if you don't have a ticket - get one now.

Thr Red Hot Chili Peppers will be playing all time favourites including 'Californication' and 'Scar Tissue' live. And after missing out on tickets to The Killers debut in Australia a couple of years back - I cannot wait to see the boys rock out to a few of the classics 'Mr Brightside' 'Jenny was a Friend of Mine' 'When You Were Young' and too many more to name! The last time The Killers came to Australia was back in 2010 at 'Good Vibrations' so it's a very exciting event.

In the past, Big Day Out has been regarded as a festival for youngsters due to it not being strictly an over-18 event. However, with a line up as fabulous as this, I imagine this stereotype to diminish pretty rapidly.

As usual the day will be carried out at Sydney Showground. Like the Stereosonic Festival, which will be playing in less than a week, Big Day Out is also hosted and supported by various radio stations, including Triple J, Channel V, MTV, as well as Carlton Dry, Vodka Cruiser, Strong Bow and even Vans (the shoe brand!)

Tickets are selling for $16,5 which may seem pricey this year- but it's pretty good considering the variety of bands and artists offered.

Don't forget your sunscreen (if it's hot), poncho (if it's cold) and closed footwear so you don't get your feet trodden on.
