Big Day Out organiser Ken West has claimed Prince, Eminem and Blink-182 were all offered spots on the 2012 bill, and that the festival was nearly cancelled altogether after co-promoter Vivian Lees pulled out last month, as the festival downsized, with Kanye West leaving the bill on some dates.
Grinderman apparently disbanded onstage this weekend, with Nick Cave appearing to call time on the group at an Australian festival.
Kasabian have hinted that they could be one of the headliners at next year's Hard Rock Calling in London's Hyde Park.
Kasabian have announced that they will play a big New Year's Eve show at London's O2 Arena.
Big Day Out 2012 tickets are now on sale for the six events next summer.
