BDO Second Announcement

The second round of Big Day Out acts features a range of talent: from the never compromising Noel Gallagher to the thunderous Nero performing with a full live band for the first time in New Zealand. From Brazil’s Cavalera Conspiracy to the whacked out world of Das Racist, there are plenty of new pieces to complete the BDO puzzle.

Here are the second round of artists that complete the 2012 Big Day Out lineup:

NOEL GALLAGHER’S HIGH FLYING BIRDS

NERO (LIVE)

THE VACCINES

BASSNECTAR

CAVALERA CONSPIRACY

REGURGITATOR

KIMBRA

PARKWAY DRIVE

MIDNIGHT YOUTH

DAS RACIST

SIX60

MT EDEN

THE ADULTS

I AM GIANT

CAIRO KNIFE FIGHT

JAKOB

BULLETPROOF

JUNICA

@PEACE

DJ SIR-VERE

NICK D

 

There will be some other changes to the festival structure -

One main stage, no D barricade, Skating & Skate stage in the main arena, Green stage, Boiler Room, Show ‘N’ Shine hot rod show brought to you by OnePercent magazine and more. Plus it’s now a little cheaper than the East Coast Australian Shows, with booking fees included.

However, the need to reduce from two to one main stage means a couple of acts from the first announcement have been cut from Auckland BDO.

Kanye West and Odd Future will not be appearing at BDO this year, and while you hip hop fans are no doubt in hysterics, remember that BDO is just as much about the atmosphere as it is about the music. There is truly no other event like it, and 2012 will be no exception.

With financial concerns and logistical problems, this could very well be the last Big Day Out ever in New Zealand. So for that reason alone you do not want to miss it!
