Big Day Out 2012 Announcement Date Confirmed

Written by Brayden Darke on September 27, 2011

We’ve been trying to anticipate the Big Day Out 2012 line-up announcement date for a few weeks now, but today we can finally confirm that we will be getting the first round of 17 artists on Thursday 29th September, and 3 headliners on the following morning (30th September).

To coincide with the announcement, the Big Day Out website will be taking us on a journey through its 20 year history by opening up a ‘vault’ everyday to display past line-up’s, memorabilia, video, ticket, images and merchandise. Starting with 1992 (and now including 93, and 94) and working their way through to 2012.

So far it looks like Kasabian are the only band locked in to play, but thanks to @BigDayOutSpy, we also have a large list of ‘leaked acts’ as a possible line-up. So far Radiohead or Pearl Jam look to be the big headlining bands, while other interesting acts include OFWGKTA, 90s band CAKE, and local acts such as Bluejuice, Eskimo Joe and Stonefield. You can see the full list below.

Big Day Out 2012 Announcement Date

Thursday 29th September (evening) – 17 bands
Friday 30th September (morning on triple j Breakfast) – 3 headliners
