Thousands of music fans will descend on Auckland's Mt Smart stadium tomorrow to rock at the biggest musical event of the year.

Weather forecasters predict some showers, with a high of around 23 degrees, according to Weatherwatch head analyst Philip Duncan.

Festival organisers expect a crowd of up to 40,000 people at this year's event - all set to enjoy a selection of over 70 top music acts performing across eight stages.

This year's biggest draw cards include Muse, The Mars Volta, Lily Allen, Groove Armada and many more.

Getting there

A continuous bus service leaves from Real Groovy Records in Queen St between 9am and 2pm. Return buses leave from 9.30pm and drop people off on Queen Street.

Trains will also be available to ferry people to the Big Day Out concert - running between Britomart and Papakura. Timetables available at maxx.co.nz

Getting around

Get yourself orientated and know your bearings as soon as you get there. Pick up a copy of the Big Day Out site map, or print one off here [PDF]

Also pick up a show timetable - that way you can choose what you want to see and in what order. Timetable available here [PDF]

Weather

Forecasters are predicting a warm, overcast day, so make sure you dress sensibly and keep yourself hydrated - drink plenty of water.

As the old saying goes: slip, slop, slap, wrap. A hat, sunglasses and sunscreen are essential.
