This year’s Big Day Out festival in Australia was MASSIVE. We summed it up by saying, “If this year was 10x better than last what’s next year going to be like?” – we can now answer that question… The initial line-up for Big Day Out 2011 has been revealed and it’s already shaping up to be even bigger and better than last year!

Confirmed headliners for Big Day Out 2010 are Tool, Rammstein, Iggy and The Stooges and M.I.A. (Gasp!)

American band Tool will be playing their first shows Down Under in four years and are sure to be a big draw. Similarly, Rammstein are one of Germany’s greatest musical exports and will be welcomed with open arms and raised devil horns by thousands of fans for the coast-to-coast dates of BDO in January and February. Iggy and The Stooges will remind us all once again that Raw Power is what it’s all about. Little Miss Notorious M.I.A. completes a stellar line-up of headliners, while you can take your pick from the other top bands that fill the line-up, including The Black Keys, LCD Soundsystem, Primal Scream and John Butler Trio.

Full line-up details and ticket & venue listings for Big Day Out 2011 are below. We’re expecting a second list of band names to be added to the bill at a later date and we’ll be sure to share that news with you as soon as we’re informed.
