Yikes … 20 years of Handcrafted Festivals, no one saw that happening in 1992.

A milestone rarely achieved by any festival will become reality for us when we stage our 20th year of BDO festivals.

Big Day Out was created to level the playing field and prove that the title...

BDO is always notorious for nothing but recycled acts. This is no different, but.. at least there are a few new additions (apart from living end who seem to play every year), but its still missing 'something'*
I never go to BDO anymore, too many 16 year old idiots, so am pretty disappointed that, after waiting years for Royksopp to tour, they end up at this. I'd love to see them at a festival, just not BDO

I'd personally like to see them at something like PGW - they'd suit a natural environment IMO

SOOOOOOOOOO Excited for The Living End, Hilltop Hoods and Boy & Bear. Great to see some new Aussie acts getting a try, and not the same ones that do every festival.

I'd prefer to see Royksopp on this line up than any other. There is a better chance they'll see a sideshow when touring for BDO than any other festival/promoter.

Agreed. I'm holding out for a sideshow otherwise I don't think I'll be seeing them.

Not that impressed with the line up, Frenzal are awesome but I've seen them this year. I loved the line up last year with Tool Rammstein and Deftones. Might still go though, BDO out is always fun.

U might wanna replace APC with Muse since the former pulled out.

Royksopp will go off at BDO. There that perfect cross over live dance act that the BDO kind of go for. Ben's right as well about the sideshow. Id say you could almost lock in the metro or maybe enmore.

Pretty shit lineup overall esp the headliner. Ill be happy enough to see soundgarden, kasabian, battles and royksopp over the course of the day though.

Its almost like they have a lineup checklist now:

- Blow Hard American Rapper - Check
- Reformed big name rock band - Check
- Overated Brittish "it" band - Check
- Something for the emo kids - Check
- Classic dance music act - Check
- Average Aussie acts that cant make it anywhere else but tmake their living performing at the BDO each year - Check, Check and Check

That template is set in stone.

That is spot on.

Kanye alone will probably sell 50% of the tickets, 25% sold to people who are just going coz their mates are, and the rest combination between 16-18 year olds and emos

Worst BDO LINE UP EVER!!!!
it's cool that people love the hoods (me too) but BDO isn't the place to see them.
Sound on the main stage for hip hop is always terrible.
For example: hoodies 2009 and BNE 2010

IMO there are too many shit commercial festivals; all similar in shittiness as each other, which feed off and create new devil spawn shit festivals. More and more festivals = watered down lineups at twice the cost.
It's sad... like Australia is backwards to the rest of the festival world.


Sure i'm not super old, but i've seen some amazing bands/gigs in my time.

So the second announcement should be coming in a week or 2, usually early Nov from memory? Any guesses as to who else might be playing, they're talking it up as it's the 20th year, you think they'd be bringing out a few bigger names?
I'm quietly guessing/wishing that Jay-Z could be announced alongside Kanye as Watch The Throne. They've been touring together the last few months through the states, and from what i can see he isn't doing any other shows around that time. I'd lose my shit to see them together.

All I'm saying is I think the Hilltop Hoods are really ahead of the game as far as both MCing and production is concerned and I am super excited to see them on the same line up as Kanye, who I think is the best rapper in the world right now, easily.

I've been to that many bdo's and love it, but this is the worst line up i can remember

Firstly why would you put kanye on the line up after he headlined splendour, then pull him from the cities that would have had no chance of seeing him at splendour...

ticket sales must be really bad
