Big Day Out just got bigger!

Organisers of the Aussie and New Zealand festival tour have just announced a few new additions to a line-up already boasting the likes of Beastie Boys and The Chemical Brothers.

[r-zone1]Slipknot, The Hives, and The Polyphonic Spree are among the latest additions to the line up for next year’s Big Day Out.

Other new additions include Spiderbait, Regurgitator, Decoder Ring, John Spencer Blues Explosion, Hatebreed, D4, and antibodean favourite Carl Cox.

[l-zone2]One Virtual Festivals reader already excited about donning his leather mask to watch Slipknot at Big Day Out is Brixton-based rocker, Simon Bray. He told us: “I’d already booked my ticket, never dreaming my favourite band Slipknot would be booked to play at the festival. Now I can dig out my gimp mask, get over to Oz, and rock along with my heroes.” 

Beastie Boys, The Chemical Brothers, Powderfinger, System of a Down, Grinspoon, The Donnas, John Butler Trio, and Eskimo Joe.
