For 18 years The Big Day Out has been Auckland's biggest, noisiest music festival and a rite of passage for many teenagers - but after Friday, it will be no more.

Organisers have confirmed they are pulling the plug on the transtasman music festival's New Zealand show, although Australian concerts will continue.

Organiser Ken West said it was no longer financially viable to present the show in Auckland.
