Big Day Out 2008 - Second Round Rumours-

Author: News
Tuesday, 9 October 2007
So it's now been a week since the BDO kids released the official first line-up of 2008. All of your favourites from yesteryear and today are filling the bill.

Rage Against The Machine, Bjork, Arcade Fire and Dizzee Rascal are pretty cool headliners for the event and it'll definitely be worth admission alone for those four.

We're not quite sure how Grinspoon got on there, but you know, whatever, we're hip and young. We won't be wearing fluoro, though.


Rumours are starting to run around the web again about who will be announced in the second round of acts.

Silverchair is a strong favourite to jump on the bill as well and, considering they cleaned up at the ARIA's, it's feasible.

UNKLE could also be headlining the Boiler Room, which would help sway people back in there - it does get a tad shit in there.

What we can confirm are the ones people DON'T want to be there.

Operator Please - it's pretty bloody obvious why they shouldn't be there. One song about ping pong shouldn't be enough for promoters to bill them. It's kind of like Alien Ant Farm - they had one cover, played it at BDO and then everything else was like...ehhh.

Frenzal Rhomb - please, please, please. It's over, boys. At least they're always on first, when nobody is there. It doesn't really count that way.

You know what- That's about it. Spiderbait just get in - because they're okay - but everyone else is more than welcome to play.

If you've got thoughts as to who you don't want to see on the line-up...leave a comment and we'll add it to the list here!
