AJ Maddah Hints At Fourth Band To Replace Blur At Big Day Out

Written by Greg Moskovitch on December 3, 2013

UPDATE: Blur replacements have finally been announced – full details here!

It’s looking like AJ Maddah is a man who displays the utmost fidelity to his word. The Big Day Out promoter looks to be keeping true to his promise of maintaining the integrity of the festival and honouring the value of the ticket by hinting that he may add a fourth band to replace Blur.

In response to one fan’s pestering about the announcement of the three bands set to replace the cancelled UK stars, Maddah dropped something of a bombshell, saying “And hopefully not taking any shit on the deals will mean I may have enough left in the kitty to try to get a 4th band tonight!”

Maddah previously said that the announcement of the three bands would be happen Tuesday evening at the latest, after experiencing contract deadline troubles with one of the bands. Maddah confirmed the announcement would not happen tonight, telling a fan to “Have an early night.”

Maddah also said that this wasn’t necessarily a strict Blur replacement, but rather a move made in the interest of improving the festival, saying, “Who said it was 4 bands for the ‘price of 1’?” and revealing, “I was going to add 2 bands before Blur even fell out.”
