Big Day Out! The 2013 iteration of the festival is back and seemingly larger than ever, with a knockout lineup (announced earlier than ever before) including the already leaked (see video below), but exciting premise of the Red Hot Chili Peppers headlining, as well as other massive names including The Killers, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Foals and Against Me!! There's also a few wildcard additions on the bill that are still pants-tighteningly tantalizing, including Vampire Weekend, Band of Horses and Animal Collective as well as first-time Australia visitors Alabama Shakes (AMAZING!!!), Childish Gambino and Gary Clark Jr. It should be an interesting (big) day indeed...
We'd be out there to line up for those General Pants Co. presales right now...if it wasn't so cold.
