Big Day Out 2012 timetables

Following on from the release of their New Zealand set times earlier this week, Big Day Out have finally let the Australian timetables loose into the world.

Only this weekend promoter Ken West gave a candid interview about the difficulties of timetabling next year’s event, following a tumultuous year for the festival. In the press release for the timetables West explains that “The Big Day Out was and always will be about creating the best experience possible. Now that all the confusion has calmed we all hope you feel as excited about these shows as we do. Great music, great atmosphere and much fun to be had by all. Thank you all for your support, it’s much appreciated. Just to set the record straight – there will be no special deals, discounts, “2 for 1’s” or ballots. When it sells out. That’s that.”

There’s also some excellent news on the timetables for punters in Adelaide and Perth with Mariachi El Bronx returning to the lineup and playing double duty with a second set as The Bronx.
