Hi everyone,
The full picture of what’s in store is now reaching completion. 
 
Of course there is always more to discover on the day.
 
The Big Day Out was and always will be about creating the best experience possible.
 
Now that all the confusion has calmed we all hope you feel as excited about these shows as we do. Great music, great atmosphere and much fun to be had by all.
 
Thank you all for your support, it’s much appreciated.
 
Just to set the record straight – there will be no special deals, discounts, “2 for 1’s” or ballots.
 
When it sells out. That’s that.
 Ken West

Of course the full picture is not complete without playing times and we’re happy to announce that they’re available today fromwww.bigdayout.com. And this year we’re making it even easier to build your own BDO schedule, and share it with friends!

For the first time in BIG DAY OUT history we’ve made it even easier to keep track of your fave bands and your mates! For our 20thAnniversary shows we’re giving you the opportunity to create your own custom schedule at www.bigdayout.com and share it via Facebook and/or Twitter.  Simply log into our “Create Custom Lineup” via Facebook you’ll be able to see your Facebook friends’ schedules – very handy indeed!

So, what are you waiting for?  Get online and get planning for your BIG DAY OUT now!
Now, let’s get started …

BIG DAY OUT are chuffed to announce that our specially made 14ft high x 40ft wide beauty of a vert ramp will also host it’s very own Stage in Adelaide and Perth and will take over the main arena as soon as the main stage bands have unplugged!  Nothing like witnessing the awesomeness of the world’s best skaters to a live soundtrack by the likes of MARIACHI EL BRONXTHE BRONX, CAGE THE ELEPHANTand REGURGITATOR all in the summer sun … we can almost see it now!

Yes, that’s right! BIG DAY OUT are pleased to welcome back MARIACHI EL BRONX to the Adelaide & Perth Big Day Out shows together with THE BRONX!

BIG DAY OUT 2012 is bringing you a festival experience never before witnessed on these shores – the double barrel attack of THE BRONXand MARIACHI EL BRONX in Adelaide and Perth. That’s right, you already knew MARIACHI EL BRONX were coming to put the Ole! intoBDO! Now, in a completely separate performance, the LA punks will also throw off the sombreros and slip into their original hardcore guise:THE BRONX. They’re “loud and enigmatic… empowering and positively aggressive” (TheAUReview). And they’re an intensity machine that never lets up: “THE BRONX kick out the jams and good music oozes from their pores… killer riffs and feel-good shouty vocals are unrelenting” (Crossfire). Self-professed “purveyors of audio and visual dissidence”, THE BRONX are gonna give it to BIG DAY OUT both ways marking the very first time both incarnations of the band have played on the same day, on the same stage in Australia!

Also making a welcome return for our 20th anniversary is the “Big Day Out Show N Shine Competition“, featuring the best this country has to offer in Hotrods & Muscle Cars.

In keeping with the times, BIG DAY OUT will also be featuring a collection of some awesome cars from the “Music on Wheels” category. These specialised vehicles will provide you with an insight into the dedication the owners have made into turning their rides into not only a visual art form, but show you what you can do with a collection of mobile sound gear.

So come on down and hear them roar into life as part of the BIG DAY OUT and see firsthand the craftsmanship that goes in to these amazing machines and see who will take out the brand new Big Day Out Show N Shine trophy for 2012!
Lastly, but by no means least, BIG DAY OUT has always been a proud supporter of Australian music and each year we relish the opportunity to expose our audiences to a diverse range of truly talented local artists in each city. Many of the Australian bands on this year’s national tour started their BIG DAY OUT history with the one off appearance in their home towns and we have a feeling that this year’s stellar additions are all destined for greatness and we’ll no doubt be seeing them gracing the BIG DAY OUT stages for many years to come!
