Big Day Out 2012 Second Lineup Announcement
Following on from the star-studded first announcement, Big Day Out have dished up an equally magnificent second lineup announcement.
Leading the charge of the second announcement are Nero, The Vaccines, Kimbra, Art Vs Science, Regurgitator, Das Racist (called it!), Bassnectar, Cavalera Conspiracy, Miss Kittin, Abbe May, Kitty, Daisy & Lewis, Bluejuice, Drapht , Papa Vs Pretty, Amity Affliction, King Cannons, Faker, Calling All Cars, Stonefield, Tonite Only, Shock One and T-Rek, plus the delightful Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds.
While that is no doubt great news for east coast BDO fans, Perth and Adelaide punters were dealt a massive blow with a downsizing of the event resulting in Kanye West and Mariachi El Bronx pulling out of both respective legs of the festival, with Hilltop Hoods also pulling out of Perth, and The Living End also withdrawing from Adelaide.
The 2012 Big Day Out takes place on Sunday January 29 at Flemington Racecourse.
