Die-hard music fans willing to breach bail conditions and jump fences were among a small number of trouble makers at yesterday's Big Day Out.

Senior sergeant Jason Greenhalgh said only seven arrests were made at the Auckland event.

"Two of them were for breaches of bail conditions and there were five intoxication arrests.''

Eight people had to be evicted from the Western Springs venue, including two fence-jumpers, he said.


Overall, the crowds were well-behaved. "It certainly was well-run and well-managed,'' Mr Greenhalgh said.

According to police records, about 33,000 attended the day's festivities.

There were no problems with revellers after the event, Mr Greenhalgh said.
