I was heartbroken when it was announced back in January that the 2012 Big Day Out would be its last date in Auckland... and now I've spent the morning sobbing into my breakfast after reading the line-up announcement for an Australia-only 2013 BIG DAY OUT.
Just to name a few: YEAH YEAH YEAHS, VAMPIRE WEEKEND, SLEIGH BELLS, THE KILLERS, ANIMAL COLLECTIVE, FOALS, EVERY TIME I DIE, AGAINST ME! and CRYSTAL CASTLES.
Tickets are AU$165 (no fees attached) and go on-sale to the general public on Thursday, July 19th via www.bigdayout.com.
So far, Red Hot Chili Peppers are the only band have announced a New Zealand side-show... BRB. Just looking at the cost of flights to Australia in January...
