Big Day Out

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

I wish to cor­rect a state­ment of mine re­ported in the Auck­land City Har­bour News on Septem­ber 11.

I was wrongly ad­vised that the Big Gay Out was mov­ing from Coyle Park to Western Springs when it is in fact the Big Day Out mov­ing there.

I sin­cerely apol­o­gise for any con­fu­sion this has caused, and for rais­ing any­body’s hopes.

That said, the board and coun­cil of­fi­cers will again work with the or­gan­is­ers to min­imise any dis­rup­tion caused by an event that we have al­ways been pleased to host in our area.

In re­cent years the board has given a grant to the or­gan­is­ers to as­sist with clean­ing up and rub­bish dis­posal, and been vig­i­lant in stip­u­lat­ing con­di­tions around crowd be­hav­iour etc.

The or­gan­is­ers have re­sponded very pos­i­tively and we have seen great im­prove­ments as a re­sult.

At this time it con­tin­ues to be the case that a Mu­sic in the Parks event will not be held at Coyle Park next sum­mer.
