Big Day Out 2010 lineup announced

Big Day Out 2010 lineup announced

Big Day Out I like you. I really do. You've been good to me over the years, and though my interest wavers, that's natural with any long term relationship. You need to nurture these things, be sensitive, yet encouraging. A bit spicey. 

WOULD IT KILL YOU TO MIX IT UP ONCE IN A WHILE?!!

There's not too many surprises in the internet age. Sometimes, even less so with institutions. Thanks to various leaks, interviews and love letters, we already knew the likes of Muse, Lily Allen, Dizzee Rascal and Girl Talk were on their way to 2010 Big Day Out. Powderfinger, Eskimo Joe and Kisschasy we didn't need to. Whereas Grinspoon, Tame Impala and The Temper Trap will be at the opening of a tin can this festival season, as sure enough as the sun coming up tomorrow. 

But it's the undercard at these festivals where the real value lies, and sure enough here we find a few fresh points of interest to unearth. (Which, one could argue, giant established festivals that sell out regardless of lineup are in prime position to do.) Epic US prog-metallaers Mastodon, epic US prog-folkies The Decemberists and the back-from-the-dead-now-kinda-interesting UK dudes The Horrors will all make a much anticipated journey to Australia. 

Here's the deal:

Muse
Powderfinger
Lily Allen
Eskimo Joe
Groove Armada
Grinspoon
The Mars Volta
Ladyhawke
Dizzee Rascal
Karnivool
Peaches
The Temper Trap
Kasabian
Midnight Juggernauts
Rise Against
Magic Dirt
Mastodon
Lisa Mitchell
The Horrors
Bluejuice
Calvin Harris
Kisschasy
The Decemberists
Tame Impala
Girl Talk

    The caged drinking quarters is completely shit and has only resulted in the rise of chugging.
