MTV to film World Stage at Big Day Out 2013!
Performances by some of the biggest acts at the ‘Big Day Out’ will be filmed in Sydney on January 18 and made into two one-hour ‘World Stage’ specials, to be broadcast on MTV networks across the globe.
“Big Day Out deserves a global platform and MTV World Stage is going to show music fans everywhere that Australians can do a music festival like no one else,” said Rebecca Batties, General Manager, Music and Comedy, MTV Australia and New Zealand.
“We are all totally pumped that MTV and World Stage are on board with us this year,” continued ‘Big Day Out’ creator/director Ken West.
“To be able to show what the Big Day Out experience is really about to music fans all over the world is a dream come true. Great audiences, great music, Australian Summer; what’s not to like! BDO and MTV - two icons working together, this will go off. Can’t wait.”
