Big Day Out 2012 Line-up – Official Announcement (Live)

Written by John Ritchie on September 29, 2011

After all the rumours and speculation the Big Day Out 2012 Line-up is finally here, well almost. Big Day Out are drip feeding us 17 bands tonight (Thursday), while we’ll hear the 3 headliners on Friday morning. 2012 will be the 20th anniversary for Big Day Out and Pearl Jam, Radiohead, Prince and many more have all been rumoured to be on the line-up. Even though yesterday Big Day Out posted a facebook update saying there would be no bands headlining that started with a ‘P’ or an ‘R’, but we can still hope!

Other names to be thrown in to the rumours are Odd Future, Arcade Fire, Cake, My Chemical Romance, Florence and the Machine, The Killers, Queens of the Stone Age and System of a Down.

We’ll keep you updated here as the bands are announced tonight and tomorrow so keep checking back to stay in the loop.
