Big Day Out 2012 Third Announcement Scheduled

Big Day Out 2012 organisers will announce a third round of acts tomorrow at 9am. The line-up already features Kayne West, Soundgarden and Foster The People, but ticket sales are low and the public have criticised the line-up. ‘Facebook Abuse’ even caused Big Day Out founder, Vivian Lees, to quit the organisation for good.

Low ticket sales also forced remaining founder, Ken West, to pull Kayne West and Odd Future from Adelaide and Perth and to downsize the venues. So far no Big Day Out shows have sold out although a number of sideshows have.

Visit Music Feeds tomorrow at 9am to view the Third and final Big Day Out 2012 line-up announcement.
