For a first announcement… By gad there are a heck of a number of bands that have been announced to take to the stage for next year’s Big Day Out. And while the headliners don’t really fall into the ‘pop’ category (Tool, Rammstein, Iggy & The Stooges etc), there’s plenty to keep us pop kids happy when the BDO2011 kicks off on the Gold Coast on January 23.
Also on the bill are the likes of LCD Soundsystem, PNAU, Bliss N Eso, Angus & Julia Stone, Little Red, CSS, Operator Please, Gypsy & The Cat, Kids Of 88 and many, many more.
We’d be here all day telling you all the artists announced thus far, so head over to www.bigdayout.com for all the guff.
