A man has been charged with headbutting a police officer at Sydney's Big Day Out music festival, leaving him with a broken nose.
The officer was allegedly assaulted while attempting to restrain the man after he jumped a barrier to enter the Sydney Showgrounds about 7pm (AEDT) on Friday.
The injured officer was taken to Concord Hospital, where it is anticipated he will require surgery, police say.
A 23-year-old man was arrested and taken to Auburn Police Station, where he was charged with causing grievous bodily harm with intent to resist arrest.
