Big Day Out 2012 organisers have announced timetables for Gold Coast, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and Auckland, which was released earlier this week. This year you’ll also be able to make a custom schedule via the Big Day Out website, and share it via Facebook and Twitter.
In Adelaide and Perth, the Orange and Blue stages have been replaced with the one Big Day Out Stage to compensate for the trimming of the line ups in both cities. Both cities will also get a specially made 14ft high x 40ft wide vert ramp for the skating event, and will take over the main stage area once the main stage bands have unplugged.
Those cities with Kanye West will have him headline last on the main Blue Stage, while you can pop over to see Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds headline the Green Stage, or Nero headline the Boiler Room as the last events for the day.
