Big Day Out 2011 line-up

There have been legitimate clues, dodgy rumours and a many an uncalculated bet, but finally the time has come to reveal the official 2011 Big Day Out line-up.

Australia’s biggest festival will be celebrating its 18th Birthday with a mammoth bill come January, headed up none other than Mr Maynard James Keenan and his band of merry men Tool. Fresh from the studio where they are recording their fifth studio album, the Californian prog-rockers are set to bring their spectacular live show (lazers and all) down under next year for the first time in over four years.

Making just as much noise but with slightly more fire will be the band that made 2009 the year of X-rated videos and souvenir dildo box sets, Rammstein. Returning exactly a decade after their last BDO outing, the German industrial kings are set to strap-on and plug-in when they reach our shores in January.

Speaking of iconic Big Day Out moments, are you sick of hearing your mates go on about dancing on stage with the Godfather of punk way back in 2006? Well, you will finally have the chance to be Iggy’s dog when Iggy Pop and The Stooges bring their Raw Power back to Australia next year.

But wait, there is so much more. Keeping the controversy coming at BDO 2011 will be ranga-lover M.I.A, the man that likes to party more than Kiss, Andrew WK and the guy that said he would never be back James Murphy with LCD Soundsytem

For the first time in the festival’s eighteen year history, FasterLouder and our sister site inthemix are pleased as punch to be the online media partner’s of the Big Day Out.

That photo is funny. I'm referring to the dude in green shorts touching / discussing his 'huge pecs', and the girl in the yellow top with a huge gut.

Rammstein might be a gimmick, but that's the point.

It's like saying that a magician isn't entertaining because the magic isn't real.

You're watching it for the production, not for the music.

1. Listen to Primal Scream
2. Think "man, that's fucking rubbish"
3. Rinse and repeat.

Primal Scream are rad as shit. Screamadelica in particular, is rad as shit.

MorningAfterboy

Eugh, I can't stand them. Must be a thing with me and geezer-rock - I also hate Kasabian and can only do Oasis in very small doses.

Who wouldn't get excited about a hat-trick on the first day of the Ashes?

MorningAfterboy

I get similarly excited when a coat of white paint dries, or when The Script release new music.

daveyac8881

It's not like fatness is a disease like cancer which you have no control over and therefore is completely uncalled for to rip on.

Are you still in fucking high school? Get a fucking brain about you, degenerate.

MAB you can dish it out, but you cannot take it at all.

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 26th Nov, 2010

Yeah, I insult people over their physical appearance all the time.

Sorry, no, I'm not fucking thirteen.

mooney88

mooney88 said on the 26th Nov, 2010

You insult people about their taste in music, grammar etc. all the time?

Since when is physical appearance off limits?

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 26th Nov, 2010

If you honestly take any of that seriously, you are far dumber than I have ever given you credit for.

mooney88

mooney88 said on the 26th Nov, 2010

Doing it to multiple users, multiple times a day, EVERY day, would believe me to think that, yes, you do think you are better than others based on the size of your hard drive and grammar skillz.

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 26th Nov, 2010

Okay, you got me - you are, indeed, a thousand times dumber than I thought you were.

As you were.

lukey26

lukey26 said on the 26th Nov, 2010

Just picked up my tickets :)

mooney88

mooney88 said on the 26th Nov, 2010

Jesus. You honestly do not take feedback well. You would be a cool dude if you didn't have such a vocal opinion on every single musician ever, and were more tolerant of the thoughts of others.

lukey26

lukey26 said on the 26th Nov, 2010

Yeah, I insult people over their physical appearance all the time.

Sorry, no, I'm not fucking thirteen.

I seem to remember that you used rip on me for apparently looking like Justin Bieber all the time...

Stefan Beck

Stefan Beck said on the 26th Nov, 2010



Which was completely unfair.
You look much more like the drummer from Operator Please.

http://www.mtv.com.au/gsp/Music_Entertainment/Artists/operator-please-tim-281x211.jpg

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 26th Nov, 2010



Snookums, you didn't ever take that to heart, did you?
I love Justin Bieber.



Feedback? You think insulting me over my weight is "feedback"? Like the kind you write on a form? You've now moved to roughly two thousand times dumber than I thought you were.

Also, I don't think I'd ever want to be a "cool dude" in your eyes.

If it wasn't already clear, MAB is a character - a caricature, if you will. We go to the same gigs and have the same taste in music, and the reviews I write as him are all me - but at the end of the day, he's still a character. Neither he nor I honestly care if Lukey is a manchild, or if Braveheart watches cricket, or about whatever shit music Tyler throws down to, or even what Slipdog does with glowsticks in his spare time. It's the fucking internet - take it, and yourselves, less seriously.

mooney88

mooney88 said on the 26th Nov, 2010

Sorry. Feedback is probably the wrong word. I should of gone with, "everyone thinks you are a dick because:"

If its the internet and not the real world, and you dont take it seriously, Why do you care if people call you fat?

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 26th Nov, 2010



Because of my weight?
Three thousand times dumber.



You wouldn't understand - you've probably always been the bully, picking on the fat kid or the queer kid or whatever person who's slightly different - so I won't bother explaining it.

mooney88

mooney88 said on the 26th Nov, 2010

Bully? I was one of the skinniest kids in my grade. I Was the easy target. Who cares but? You learn to adapt and don't show weakness.

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 26th Nov, 2010



Who the fuck gets teased for being skinny? Along with being white and hetero, you'd have no idea what it's like to be insulted and teased for being different.

It's especially as bad when the person doing it has never even met you or seen you in the flesh. That's really fucking low, and it was totally uncalled for.

Ribbing about liking a band or whatever is one thing, but when you get bullied nearly all of your life because of what you look like, that's what makes kids want to end their lives.

mooney88

mooney88 said on the 26th Nov, 2010

Do you really think people don't get teased for being skinny? I guess it just shows how different our situations were. But trust me, you do.

Also i would never rip on someone for being gay.

berlinchair101

berlinchair101 said on the 26th Nov, 2010

I got ripped on for being gay for most of my school life. I'm not even gay.

It sucks, but you can either attack everything in case it becomes a threat or you can find your place in the world where you can be happy and put the past behind you.

chico21

chico21 said on the 26th Nov, 2010



Mate that is a totally ridiculous thing to say. There are a lot of factors that contribute to someone being overweight. Two people could exercise the same and eat the same and have a completely different body fat composition. I don't want to get into a weight debate - but that is such a bullshit, misunderstood comment to make... and plain mean. I'm not saying MAB is innocent either but that was a low blow.

MAB would get more sympathy if he wasnt the first one to go "LOLOLOLOL butthurt 'dawsoncrying.jpg' " when other people think he's gone too far.

deenie

deenie said on the 26th Nov, 2010

so, is there gonna be a 3rd announcement or not?? don't get me wrong, i'm pretty stoked with quite a few bands from the first announcement (namely m.i.a, tool, john butler trio, angus and julia stone, birds of tokyo, blue king brown, operator please), happy about sia too, but i was kinda hoping for more than that... i got my tickets the other day and last time i went to bdo i was about 35 weeks pregnant so this time i'm looking to let loose... any idea as to when this 3rd announcement might happen?

:)

Stefan Beck

Stefan Beck said on the 26th Nov, 2010

Using the incredibly weak second announcement as a guage I wouldn't expect more than one or two local acts in any potential third annoucement.

Don't get excited.

I would have been excited about Rammstein a few years ago but that "Pussy" song is wrong in too many ways to mention.
Now they are just like Kiss and need pyrotechnics to distract from tha fact that the music is awful...

Pussy is an awesome song, whats your problem? is it that it should have been written about you.

Slip_dog

Slip_dog said on the 28th Nov, 2010



Especially fat gay men. Ha ha ha ha ha , where was i when you were all picking on fatty?

Probably breaking open glowsticks and drinking the contents.

Why would I want Rammstein to write a song about me, that makes no sense whatsoever.
Who cares if I don't like one of their songs, what are you the Rammstein police?
I'm sure you will enjoy the show, gleefully waving your glowsticks as middle aged German men in leather cum all over you...

I'd be happy if LCD were playing at the same time as Rammstein, just as a healthy/sane alternative.

daveyac8881

Yeah well... Beetroots headlined Creamfields over Ferry Corsten so stranger things have happened, but imo neither LCD or Beets should headline, get a big name DJ or legendary electronic act ffs
