Some of the world’s biggest bands are set to perform in Auckland later this month.

People on flights to Auckland could make a last minute hunt for tickets to this year’s Big Day Out festival in the city.

The huge event takes place across New Zealand and Australia each year and starts in Auckland on January 20th 2012.

It will see some of the world’s biggest bands take to the stage, with headline performances expected from the likes of Kanye West, Kasabian and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds.

There are also many local bands from each of the host cities performing, which could provide the perfect opportunity to be introduced to some brilliant new talent during your stay in the city.

Tickets are priced at NZ$160 (£83) for the one-day festival and doors open at 11:00 local time.

Some people taking flights to Auckland could be planning to follow in the footsteps of one 81-year-old, who recently jumped from the city’s bungee twice.
