Finally, the 2nd lot of bands have been announced for the 2008 Big Day Out.
silverchair, Spoon, Augie March, Brand New, Regurgitator, Anti-Flag, Karnivool, Carl Cox, Pnau, Kate Nash, Josh Pyke, beXta, Shy Child, Gyroscope, Enter Shikari, Operator Please, Unkle (live), Goodwill, Krafty Kuts & MC Dynamite, Die! Die! Die!, The Nightwatchman (Tom Morello acoustic),Blue King Brown, Dr Octagon with Kutmaster Kurt, British India, Aceyalone, Krill
It’s an interesting list. Lots of Oz on it, which is good to see. (seeing as though I am missing Homebake)
Of course I am ecstatic about the Gurge playing there again. Even though I saw them a couple of months ago, I’d love to see them in a festival atmosphere.
Pleased to see Operator Please included. They are my “Next Big Thing” band and I’d like to see them play their album live.
I’m also excited about Karnivool, beXta, Pnau, Gyroscope, The Nightwatchman and British India. Soooo many bands. Only one day!
I will have to do my research with Dougall (my BDO buddy) before going to work out who we are going to fit in.
Oh, and the inclusion of silverchair? It’s a little pointless seeing as though they finished a HUGE tour of oz anyway.
I see the main stages looking like this for the end of the night:
4.00 – 5.00 – Hilltop Hoods
6.00 – 7.00 – Arcade Fire
8.00 – 9.00 – Bjork
5.00 – 6.00 – Grinspoon
7.00 – 8.00 – silverchair
9.00 – 10.00 – Rage Against The Machine
It will be HUGE!
