After loads of forum fighting and tussles, 'he said, she said' arguments and more controversial rumours than the country's capital, organisers have finally decided to let us in on the second round announcement for Big Day Out 2008.

Aria hoarders Silverchair are now officially a part of the line-up. Winning just about every award this year, including 'Album Of The Year' and 'Song Of The Year', the trio will be a welcome addition to what is already a first-class turnout for the hundreds of thousands attending next year's festival.

After six albums and countless festival appearances, Spoon will be fronting up to the gala next year. With their latest album debuted in the US Top 10, Spoon will be getting the indie on.

Central Station Records' own Bexta will also be appearing at the festival, while stalwarts Carl Cox, Unkle, Krafty Kuts & MC Dynamite and Goodwill will reinforce the Electronic music side of things.
