Big Day Out announces 2013 set times and more bands

The Big Day Out has released its 2013 timetables, added a handful of local artists to the lineup in each city and announced the return of The Red Stage and The Lillypad.

Although Ken West told FL that there would be a few less Aussie acts at next year’s event, the festival has announced a stack of locals, including Royal Headache, Something With Numbers and Deep Sea Arcade in Sydney; I Heart Hiroshima and Evil Eddie in the Gold Coast; The Beards and Lady Stranglove in Adelaide; The Smith Street Band and Kingswood in Melbourne and Sons of Rico and Sugar Army in Perth.

As well as the local additions BDO have confirmed the return of The Lillypad. Headed up by the irrepressible Duckpond and his “ambient team” Lillypad 2013 will feature Breakfast of Morons, Bogan Karaoke, the Xtreme Food Olympics and no doubt some guy waring a gumby suit trying to eat bubbles.

The set times and maps for each city have also been revealed and as expected The Red Hot Chili Peppers will headline the Blue stage, The Killers will headline the Orange stage, and once all the mainstage action is over Animal Collective will see things out on the Green stage, Sleigh Bells on The Essential and The Bloody Beetroots will premiere their new live show in the Boiler Room.
