Big Day Out 2012 timetables

Following on from the release of their New Zealand set times earlier this week, Big Day Out have finally let the Australian timetables loose into the world.

Only this weekend promoter Ken West gave a candid interview about the difficulties of timetabling next year’s event, following a tumultuous year for the festival. In the press release for the timetables West explains that “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.”

There’s also some excellent news on the timetables for punters in Adelaide and Perth with Mariachi El Bronx returning to the lineup and playing double duty with a second set as The Bronx.

Obvious troll is obvious. We'll call you when Floating Me do another record, champ.

Gotta say, Cage the Elephant were solid - had heard maybe one song before seeing them and the crowd/energy/sound was great. Everyone was having a ball.

CTE
OFWGKTA
Kasabian

I loved the last paragraph Apart from these acts, the remaining line-up were the All Stars of other festivals who we have seen and loved only 6 months ago and, in conjunction with the outlandish audacity of the teenage crowd and lackluster sound quality, you can’t help asking, “Why bother?” I’m sure Kanye, Ghandi and Buddha would agree.


Yeah man... Soundgarden were sick at Blueprint festival 6 months ago.

I haven't really looked, but I think I initially planned:
CTE
Best Coast
The Vaccines
Kasabian
FTP/Soundgarden
Noel

not going alone anymore, a friend got a ticket at the last minute and asked if he could come with me. damn shame, was looking forward to going and getting random thighs around my neck all day. I always seem to get asked, even with mrs Gregg there, shes not all about that though.

anyway,

please don't tell me this actually happened

someone please tell me it was just their usual Anneli Drecker and not Karin

This would seriously make me cry more than everyone gushing about Kanye

thinking about it, im pretty sure it was anneli but on ''this must be it'' she sounded either exactly like karin or was lip syncing.

I didn't buy/bring sunscreen because I knew they give it out for free. Good move me!

I didn't mind the bit of vaccines I saw but there were easily better bands there, also
CTE & Best Coast clash
Thanks for the fuckwit who timetabled that one
I left best coast after 30 seconds as my friend told me CTE would start early as CAC finished early
Which they then didn't
But I was at the front and got the setlist :D

Sir Toire said on the 27th Jan, 2012



No, can't have been. It was Anneli on This Must Be It, TG&TR, Only This Moment, and What Else Is There in Auckland. And she most certainly wasn't lip-syncing in any of them.

oh my god....that was beatiful and perfect in every way.

Reasons why Royksopp are better than kanye:

1) They are are not douches
2) Their stage show was way better than the kanye ones ive seen
3) Their costumes are way better
4) They didnt get awkward when they hugged me and I was still drawing wood
5) They told me they would come back soon and bring the Knife with them.....I think they ere just being nice there

they indeed seem to be pretty nice in person. i really can't wait to hear some new stuff from them, hopefully they won't wait till 2014 or so for a new album.

The Great Monkey War

The Great Monkey War said on the 27th Jan, 2012



haha.

Yea. Little bit fuzzy, but the sound quality didn't bother me. It was plain epic. Then he started on the autotune, and it sort of got lame, for a long time.

I'm glad I went though.



Yea.

monokhrome_nite

monokhrome_nite said on the 27th Jan, 2012



Oh god I hope they were serious

sarcasm_mister

sarcasm_mister said on the 28th Jan, 2012

yeah it was pretty much identical to BDO. even the banter in between songs was pretty much the same. the main differences were during Touch the Sky he spent half the song running around the seat section which sent everyone nuts, the endings of some of the songs were a little different and seemed more polished, he whinged about the lighting and sound throughout the night, he did American Boy, he ran around the stage a lot more particularly at the start of Good Life i think where he sprinted down the runway and we all went crazy, at the end of Runaway he went on a rant about screwing up with a girl who ended up marrying someone else and at the end of Lost in the World he went on about aiming as high as possible but the entire crowd was on its feet for the first 90mins of the show so it was a good chance to sit back and listen. even though i would prefer he didn't have those extended auto tune bits i see it as a reflection of his character, his self indulgence, life of excess and ego.

i've spent about 4hrs watching him perform over the last couple of days and despite all the shortcomings of the show it has been a fascinating experience. being a rock fan i'm used to seeing bands where your focus is divided amongst several people on stage. even most hip hop artists have another rapper to accompany them or they have a large band with them. but this was about no one but Kanye, even the dancers seemed like an extension of his own mind.

all in all the come down from the two nights is a little depressing but i know he'll be back in sydney sooner rather than later. when he says this is one of his favourite cities he really does mean it and has proven it over the last few years. now to sit and wait eagerly for a watch the throne tour.........

The Great Monkey War

The Great Monkey War said on the 28th Jan, 2012

^ Damn man, you are avid. :p



That bit where he crouched on stage staring at the ground, singing in autotune "aim as high as possible, aim as high as possible" over and over could probably have stopped somewhere during the 4th or 5th minute instead of in the 12th or 13th minute. A group of guys near us started yelling out "we didn't come here for a life lesson mate" and called out for him to play Niggas in Paris. Upon realising they weren't going to be getting that, they preceded to do their own rendition, with one of the guys making the beat, with his motherfucking mouth ("den-dun, den-dun, den-dun").

It was a great show. The whole crowd was going off. I was jumping and screaming and stuff.

For my view on the Kanye show, I request you read my review of the Splendour show that i posted in that Santa thread some time back, then add in sarcasm_minister's bit, then maybe a bit confirming that Kanye is a brony.

Seriously, "reach for the stars so you can fall into the clouds" is a Friendship Is Magic quote.

sarcasm_mister

sarcasm_mister said on the 29th Jan, 2012

SMH is reporting that BDO Sydney got 47 000. also reporting that Kanye was 13mins late in Sydney which is a little ridiculous considering headline acts to my knowledge have always come on 10-15mins after the final act on the Orange stage has finished.

daveyac8881

daveyac8881 said on the 29th Jan, 2012

Kanye was 13 minutes late, timetable said 9pm

sarcasm_mister

sarcasm_mister said on the 29th Jan, 2012

but what i'm saying is that headliners never come on immediately after the act before them. like i remember Muse starting 15mins after Powderfinger finished in 2010.

andy_chalmers_102

andy_chalmers_102 said on the 29th Jan, 2012

Yeah but usually the timetable reflects that gap. That said, I'm not going to blame Kanye for the wait. He could very well have been told to wait 10 minutes. It's not like it was much of a wait anyway.

Victim said on the 29th Jan, 2012

Kanye started about 10mins after scheduled time in Melb tonight, but as mentioned so do previous headliners, plus he performed for 2hrs, so how can anyone complain. On a related note one of his dancers fell/rolled off the stage tonight, I can't recall which song atm, but i think it was one of the slower songs in act 2 when she was the only dancer on stage. She got back up to finish after about 30secs though. Maybe the media will say he pushed her...

well highlights for my day were CTE, The Vaccines, (I don't get the slander I saw on here, they were quite good live, I went in expecting a train wreck) Royksopp, and Noel.

that's the best big day out I've been to, from my point view, because it was empty, bl ken west though, the D for soundgarden was so spaced out. fuck knows where all those people stood for FTP it seemed 90% of the festival was watching them. the D seemed a lot smaller this year too, did anyone else notice that?

great day.

RAMONESelaar

RAMONESelaar said on the 29th Jan, 2012

The D seemed smaller and definitely wasn't as packed throughout the day. Normally when the headliner plays, it's full even in front of the other stage but when we walked past it on the way out it was nowhere near full.

berlinchair101

berlinchair101 said on the 29th Jan, 2012

In Sydney the other half the D is always pretty empty. I remember being able to just stroll in when Muse were on.

RAMONESelaar

RAMONESelaar said on the 29th Jan, 2012

For Muse in Melbourne there were still people spread out through it, but yesterday there was no one past the middle point.

ThatDude123

ThatDude123 said on the 29th Jan, 2012

Off memory, the only time I've seen both sides of the D full for a headliner was for RATM. Even then, most of the people who were in there stormed in when the opening track caused a crowd surge

therat

therat said on the 29th Jan, 2012

Melbourne lay out is shite, especially where the main stages are. The fact that it was ball sweatingly hot and there was no shade was also pretty damn awesome.

Kasabian slayed in my opinion, as did Noel Gallagher and Soundgarden (again). King Cannons were also great, definately a big fan of those guys.

p.s. People taking photos of themself in the crowd and or filming entire songs/sets with their iphones should be castrated. If they do the peace sign horizontally they should be shot on the spot.

berlinchair101

berlinchair101 said on the 29th Jan, 2012



I escaped that surge into a fairly spacious other half of the D.

Well I know GC's cap is 55k. And somebody said a few days before the event that they'd sold like 35k tickets? Not 100% sure though, it was noticeably smaller but overall not as bad as I expected, plenty of bands still pulled huge crowds.

According to BDO,

Is this just based on tickets sold? because Melbourne didn't look like it had 42,000 people there.

therat said on the 30th Jan, 2012

Gold Coast venue must be three times the size of Melbourne because it felt like Melbourne was twice the crowd, or three times, or 2.66
