If you take Brendan's comments completely out of context then he may actually be right, maybe......the line up is awesome = wouldn't mind catching The Horrors sideshow??

equally excited the horrors sideshow.. but kinda depends where it is for me.. i can really see their new stuff sounding a bit shit in the wrong kinda venue..

re: line-up...

i think the general rule is that if powderfinger or eskimo joe are in the first five on the line-up then the festival is really struggling...

DOUBLE PUNCH IN THE KIDNEYEYEYSSS!!11!

I heard somewhere that BDO is not allowing sideshows for international artists,
is this true/possible?

if so I'd probably end up paying the price just to see the Mars Volta...

Jonny Yes Yes

they usually do sideshows right?

i think they normally have it written into the artist's contracts that they can't announce their own shows until the festival sells out..

1 decade ago

yeah, I just heard that this year the contract said no sideshows at all...
I mean it's gonna sell out anyway, why ruin everyone else's fun?

isn't that why bands play secret shows under fake names?

whatever. apart from the horrors, I couldn't care less about sideshows anyway.

if you're pleased with a lineup that includes powderfinger, eskimo joe and grinspoon in the top ten billing then all power to you, but go fight your fight on another website. we're all 'alternative' wankers here and we'd like to keep it that way.

aww have a sook guys, no matter what the line up is people always seem to complain, same as last year and years before. your sounding like babies. naww you didn't get your David Bowie. you poor poor things. sure the first lineup isn't exactly groundbreaking, but it's providing a solid bunch of bands that will make for a great day. so suck it up and enjoy the atmosphere that is the big day out. but on second thoughts, don't go. I don't want you ruining mine and countless other people's day.

1 decade ago

(nobody)

actually i hate those bands....but there are plenty of other bands going....my point is that you sound like smug dicks, that are putting people down for not liking the same music as you..... alternative...don't think so...sounds more right wing/ facist to me.

how can i take my complaints that you lot are a bunch of wankers to another website...dumb ass.

worst line up of any festival ever.

1 decade ago

Aaaaaaaaaron

Not the best line up but there are some alright acts in this first annoucement, namely The Horrors, Girl Talk & The Mars Volta, even thought I wouldn't want to see either of those bands in an outdoor setting. But it has to be expected that three of the most popular & mainstream Aussie bands will be close to the top of the bill of Australia's biggest music festival.
I'm sure The Temper Trap will get some young girls excited. So, if you're a young guy you might be able to get your fingers wet up in the grand stand after they're done.

AMAZING thread.

I love a post that misspells the word fascist but in the next line calls someone else a "dumb ass". brilliant.

renren

Seeing 'three of the most popular Australian bands' in the first 5 on the line-up doesn't make me feel any sense of national pride, it makes me despair for our local industry because it just brings home what Australians want to spend their money on. If you think that program reflects anything but a deep lack of imagination then you need to have a bit of shh time.

Wow, music nerds never cease to amaze me. I though gamers whinged, I thought movie fans whinged, but you guys take the cake. A rare few of you have managed to keep your complaints on a personal level (which is fine with me, if you don't like particular bands then you don't like them, personally i don't like blink and would've been dissapointed with them or ACDC as the headliners) but most of you seem to be arrogant enough to assume you speak for everyone. Stuff like "Why the hell is their shit bands that noone cares about like the temper trap playing." Just pisses me off because it's such a stupidly subjective statement. Then there's the bullshit about eskimo joe, powderfinger and grinspoon, last year the living end were in the last three acts, to ME that is worse than anything in this years lineup (unless the jonas brothers rumours are true...:P). I don't know what my point is, just that you guys seem so damn sure that this is "TEH WURST LINEUP EVAAAAZZZZZ!!!" that you are stating it like it's fact (when actually it's only true in your minds, this lineup isn't neccessarily better or worse than any other years IMO)

(nobody)

LOL - did someone really correct my spelling....haha....ok its a fair cop, i'll stop calling people dumb asses as i clearly have no right to do so....lol!

So anyway, i agree that a lot of the bands playing are crap....in my opinion. However, as mentioned i think there are also some great bands going too. I'm not about to belittle those that like Powderfinger, Eskimo Joe....just means they like something different to me...nothing more.

This is a commercial festival, complaining that commercial bands are playing is pointless and also kinda ridiculous....if you want something other than what BDO has to offer, then perhaps you should be looking for a different festival. The festival organisers are clearly doing something right and are unlikely to change tactics as the tickets sold out in minutes.

Remember folks opinion and fact are very often two different things...if everyone remembered that the world would be a better place wouldn't it...maybe the holocaust wouldn't have happened (haha had to get that in for monachilada).

Oh my fucking god, ALL of u a fucking retarded for arguing with people u dont know about shit that everyones going to have different opinions about.

To all the ladies in the place with style and grace
Allow me to lace these lyrical duches in your bushes
Who rock grooves and make moves with all the mommies
The back of the club, sippin Moet, is where you'll find me
The back of the club, mackin hoes, my crew's behind me
Mad question askin, blunt passin, music blastin
But I just can't quit
Cause one of these honies Biggie gots ta creep with
Sleep with, keep the ep a secret why not
Why blow up my spot cause we both got hot
Now check it, I got more Mack than Craig and in the bed
Believe me sweety I got enough to feed the needy
No need to be greedy I got mad friends with Benz's
C-notes by the layers, true fuckin players
Jump in the Rover and come over
tell your friends jump in the GS3, I got the chronic by the tree

Chorus:

[I love it when you call me big pop-pa]
Throw your hands in the air, if youse a true player
[I love it when you call me big pop-pa]
To the honies gettin money playin niggaz like dummies
[I love it when you call me big pop-pa]
If you got a gun up in your waist please don't shoot up the place
Cause I see some ladies tonight who should be havin my baby
Bay-bee

Verse Two:

Straight up honey really I'm askin
Most of these niggaz think they be mackin but they be actin
Who they attractin with that line, "What's your name what's your sign"
Soon as he buy that wine I just creep up from behind
And ask what your interests are, who you be with
Things to make you smile, what numbers to dial
You gon' be here for a while, I'm gon' go call my crew
You go call your crew
We can rendezvous at the bar around two
Plans to leave, throw the keys to Lil Cease
Pull the truck up, front, and roll up the next blunt
So we can steam on the way to the telly go fill my belly
A t-bone steak, cheese eggs and Welch's grape
Conversate for a few, cause in a few, we gon' do
What we came to do, ain't that right boo [truuuueee]
Forget the telly we just go to the crib
and watch a movie in the jacuzzi smoke l's while you do me

Chorus

Verse Three:

[How ya livin Biggie Smallz] In mansion and Benz's
Givin ends to my friends and it feels stupendous
Tremendous cream, fuck a dollar and a dream
Still tote gats strapped with infrared beams
Choppin o's, smokin lye an' Optimo's
Money hoes and clothes all a nigga knows
A foolish pleasure, whatever
I had to find the buried treasure, so grams I had to measure
However living better now, Gucci sweater now
Drop top BM's I'm the man girlfriend
[Honey check it
Tell your friends, to get with my friends
And we can be friends
Shit we can do this every weekend
Aight? Is that aight with you?
Yeah... keep bangin]

No that is not what i said. I didn't defend commercialism, i stated facts about what BDO is and why it works for the organisers. Those that are looking for alternative, imaginative music are looking in the wrong place....simple eh?

flukazoid

No that is not what i said. I didn't defend commercialism, i stated facts about what BDO is and why it works for the organisers. Those that are looking for alternative, imaginative music are looking in the wrong place....simple eh?


And this is basically the heart of it. There have been some relatively choice lineups in years gone by, but when it comes down to it, BDO is ostensibly the highest profile music festival we have in Australia. There's nothing niche or demographically specific - the organisers are more than winning if they manage to get some that pleases the widest range of people. And apparently a lineup as pedestrian as this is what the widest range of people want.

BDO haven't wronged us, they just haven't catered to "us" (whoever "us" is) particularly well this year. And frankly speaking, looking at the comparative size of a festival that has a better rep on these boards like - say - the Laneway Festival, it would seem that the BDO organizers aren't particularly threatened by this activity.

The BDO is in the same category as ARIAs, MTV, VH-1, Nova in what it brings to music. Similar target demographic, similar commercial aspirations. Doesn't mean it's good, but if it's not, let's stop giving them attention and focus on where the good stuff's happening.

Just my 2 cents, for what they're worth.

I've been to a few BDOs. Back in the day (ok maybe 10 years ago), for me, the festival was about bringing big name bands that had never been to Australia before. I would be excited about seeing these once in a lifetime bands. I'm struggling to get excited about the 2010 line up. It looks like a mashup of all the previous years line ups. How many of these bands have played the BDO before? A few I'm sure.

Maybe I'm just getting old.

Most disappointing BDO line up ever. I have missed some years because the bands didn't tickle my fancy but have still been impressed by the quality of acts going. This line up is like a supporting cast with no lead. It appears this is the first year where ticket sales have come before quality, this year is definately pitched to a younger generation. I love Muse, but I am a little over them (overexposure tends to kill everything I love), love the Mars Volta, but it's the old case of been there done that I think. You used to always be able to rely on the BDO for massive acts that wouldn't normally bother with our country. Muse as headliners was simply too easy and a little lazy.

1 decade ago

(nobody)

"fondle with my balls indie/alternative dickheads" you are a knob. You can thank all the 'indie/alternative dickheads' for this lineup you prat. It is they who were the first to buy the albums of the artists of next years lineup and get them to where they are now, before passing the reins on to the new breed of fans to take over.
Where were any one of these acts before the indie crowd caught on and spread the word. I bought my first Muse Album in 1999 (That's right, they have been around for over ten years now) and I think this line up is average. Not because I am an Indie alternative dickhead, but because it is.

line up is pretty average most of the bands there ive seen already but they were awesome or pretty good and would love or wouldnt mind seeing them again...either way ince the full time up comes out if it aint great i can just sell the tickets and make my money back.. there are always ppl who missed out on tickets!!

so heres to hoping the line up improves with the next announcement!!

ps: why has like no one mentioned Karnivool and how fucking awesome they are live!! fucking love that band.. if u dont know them then check them out on the day if you like good aussie rock!!

pss: im sure some of u will whinge about my band choice... but really who gives a shit im not asking u to listen to them :)

"well, funnily enough.. according to analytics.. the majority of those coming directly into this post are coming from google searches for "big day out 2010 line up" and variations of that phrase and not (it would seem) from another Pro BDO forum/blogspot..."
thats why i said, 'google it douche'.

I think anonymous posting is a good thing. More traffic, more opinions. You can always block IPs if things get too silly.

Muse and Kasabian are two very good bands, with two very good albums recently released and they will both be spectacular. If you don't like the lineup don't go.

don't understand why you are all having a go saying it's 'commercial' and its for 15 year old and such. sure there are a few commercial artists there.. but your going to get that whatever festival you goto. it't not the best but mars volta, kasabian, karnivool, groove armada, tame impala (highly under rated), muse, grinspoon, powderfinger, mastodon, the decemberist, temper trap and more. if you ask me thats a pretty good first line up for festivals in australia these days. what do you guys expect...? Led zeppelin would be good but there a bit hard to come by these days aren't they. I bet half of you have a narrow mind of music, only listening to either your corny heavy metal bands or only the greatest songs ever written. bit of exploration never hurts, comeon you can't tell me none of those bands know how to write a tune

oh reverend, the truth hurts but we have to hear it. thankyou.

I can totally see the original news story being written while Jonny grumbles about the "kids" and puts on another Mahavishnu Orchestra record. or Symphony X (ha!)

The greatest song ever written is B.O.B by Outkast. This is my personal opinion, not influenced by any external forces.

Oh please Viv & Ken, PLEASE, you need to get Weezer on this lineup so that all of this collapses in on itself :D

Wrong. the greatest song of all time goes a little something like this..

"I LOVE YOU, JESUSSSSSSSSSSS CHRISSSSSSSSSSTTTTTTTTTTTTTT"

I wonder what percentage of people with BDO 2010 tickets have heard of Neutral Milk Hotel?

And, consequently, is a song great if no one has ever heard it?

(not intending to start a NMH war. I'm pretty *cough* neutral about the band, and neither hate nor adore ITAOTS)

yeah I totally agree, I only ever listen to the greatest songs ever written.
