Snoop Doggy Dogg, aka Snoop Lion, aka Snoopzilla, aka Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr will be rocking our world at the Big Day Out 2014 but if you want to make sure you catch every incarnation of the man, you’ll be at his three BDO sideshows which also feature support slots from Major Lazer, Flosstradamus and Mac Miller.
The Gin And Juice legend will be hitting Oz for the first time since his reggae reinvention took place, promising a smattering of old and new hits, sure to please even the most discerning music lover. For Melbourne and Sydney, Mr Dogg-Lion will be bringing up and coming rap star and fellow Big Day Out player Mac Miller along to open for him, with the 21-year-old getting the party started with his fresh take on hip hop.
If you want to experience all the goodness of a Snoop Dogg-Lion show but with the added turn-it-up-to-11 party times you can only expect from Major Lazer, topped off with a little sugar from Chicago DJ duo Flosstradamus, then do we have the sideshow for you.
An exclusive treat for Brisbane and Brisbane only, these three monster acts will be sharing the bill for one night and one night only, tearing up at Marquee on 18th January. Major Lazer are the ultimate party act, with a reputation for a killer live show. Snoop invites one to never know what to expect, except for a good time. And Flosstradamus are regarded as the leaders in the modern trap scene. What more could you want?
Tickets for all shows are on sale 9:00am AEST Friday, 29th November.
