If the organizers of Big Day Out were trying to find an appropriate replacement for Blur, then consider them successful. So successful in fact that they have sourced most of Blur’s traditional rivals, Oasis, in the form of Beady Eye (Oasis minus Noel).
Also joining the bill are metal legends Deftones and Swedish indie-rockers The Hives, who will return to Australia after having played at the last Falls Festival.
However, if Beady Eye aren’t your cup of 90’s-brit-rock-flavoured tea and you want to be rid of your ticket, immediate refunds are available until January 6th 2014. Follow the instructions on www.bigdayout.com.
