Last year over 100,000 people downloaded the Big Day Out App and we've been working overtime to bring you a bigger and better App for Big Day Out 2012!
Fully integrated with all your fave social networks, you can set your logins for Facebook and Twitter so posting pics and comments is easy. Make all those folks at home jealous that you're dancing the day away at Big Day Out! You can also read all the Big Day Out Blog, Facebook and Twitter news in one place with options to share the articles.
Click on any item in the Lineup to see a full bio and links to the artist's website, iTunes, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and more! There's also the Big Day Out 2012 Video playlist where you can browse through artist videos and discover new acts. Of course the Event Maps will appear in the App in time for the festival so you can navigate your way from stage to stage.
A fabulous new feature is the Schedule Sync - put your Custom Schedule from www.bigdayout.com in your pocket. You can share your timetable with your friends on Facebook/Twitter and see what they have selected - it's good to know what your peeps are up to … And say goodbye to squinting as we now have a horizontal timetable for clearer viewing - turn your phone horizontally to view the full grid schedule.
Other exciting new features are our convenient weather function so you'll know just what to expect from your Big Day Out and our Photo Gallery full of classic festival snaps.
