Big Day Out Sideshow Announcements!

Well this morning, all of the worlds Big Day Out Sideshows were laid onto us. There are looking to be some pretty special shows, with massive bands like The Killers playing smaller venues like the Palace. Ken West has been very clever in keeping the festival viable, he hasn’t announced any Red Hot Chili Peppers sideshows. Anyway, you don’t care about this shit, you want to know where and when you can catch the stellar lineup of BDO2013 on their own.
