This year has been a big one for the Big Day Out. The event has sold out in all states(and New Zeland, which everyone knows is just an extenstion of Australia really) and an etra show has been added in Sydney for only the second time the festival’s history. Many people were expecting a big second announcement and there were rumours of bands such as Phoenix and Vampire Weekend.
Instead, the actual second line-up is looking a little bit crap. I mean Jet. Seriously. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for boring bogan rock but does anybody actually care about them anymore?
Not so boring are the annoucements of Passion Pit, Devandra Barnhart and The Middle East.
The full line-up is:
Simian Mobile Disco DJs
Itch-E and Scratch-E
DJ Sam La More
The Middle East
