Big Day Out 2012 Second Line Up & Changes

This morning the second line up was announced for the Big Day Out 2012 as well as some pretty big changes being made to Adelaide and Perth shows.  While the likes of Noel Gallagher and UK dubstep duo Nero are amongst the new acts enlisted, Kanye West will no longer play Perth or Adelaide as organisers look to downsize and rebuild.

The following acts have been added to all Big Day Out Festivals:

Noel Gallagher + High Flying Birds

The Vaccines

Cavalera Conspiracy
Abbe May
Tonite Only
Shock One

East Coast Shows Only

Art Vs Science
Das Racist
Miss Kittin
Daisy & Lewis
Papa Vs Pretty
Amity Affliction
King Cannons
Calling All Cars

Kanye West and Mariachi El Bronx will no longer be playing in Perth or Adelaide.  Festival organisers released the following statement regarding the changes:

“For our 20th year we have chosen to rebuild the Perth and Adelaide events from the ground up, with a goal to recapturing the magic of early Big Day Out shows.

Triggered by the need to change venues and the limited space available at our new site we have decided to look back to see the future for BDO.

We are not just moving the show to a more suitable venue but changing the entire design. We are excited the bands are into the idea and we know you will be too. One main stage, no D barricade, Skating & Skate stage in the main arena, Green stage, Boiler Room, Giant Water Slide, Show ‘N’ Shine and much, much more!”
