BIG DAY OUT is more than a little chuffed to announce the return of THE WHITE STRIPES. Since their last BDO visit in 2002, our old friends Jack and Meg have dropped two universally acclaimed albums, “Elephant” and this year’s “Get Behind Me Satan”, not to mention an era-defining single in the shape of “Seven Nation Army”. They are the rock icons of our time, topping charts worldwide and selling a quarter of a million albums in Australia alone. Their simple, two-person, guitar and drums line-up belies a huge blues/garage/country/folk/rock’n’roll cacophony. There is no mistaking and no resisting the sound of THE WHITE STRIPES, direct from Detroit to BIG DAY OUT.

BIG DAY OUT is rolling out the red carpet to herald the arrival of rock royalty – IGGY & THE STOOGES. “Search and Destroy”, “I Wanna Be Your Dog”, “No Fun,” “Down on the Street” – THE STOOGES’ dangerous and grimy ‘60s-‘70s catalogue was the blueprint for every punk rock, garage rock and metal band to come. After 30 years apart, THE STOOGES reformed in 2003 to contribute to Iggy’s album “Skull Ring” and to play a string of rapturously received shows. Now it’s Australia’s turn, but be warned, this ain’t no nostalgia trip – this is the iconic IGGY POP and the original underground sound of THE STOOGES. We’re not worthy!

When they sang “take me out”, the world lined up to take FRANZ FERDINAND up on their offer. BIG DAY OUT is thrilled to have the Scots with the mostest along for the ride. Universally acclaimed as the album of 2004, FRANZ FERDINAND’s self-titled debut has now been topped by the brand new “You Could Have It So Much Better” . It’s more dramatic, more emotional, more three dimensional. Not just new wave, FRANZ offer a new world: rock music with style, sexual intrigue, smarts, and more plenty of room for dancing. They’ve conquered the world – what chance does the BIG DAY OUT stand?
