FINAL ARTISTS ANNOUNCED FOR THE 2009 BIG DAY OUT

Christmas is just around the corner, and so is the BIG DAY OUT! We are excited to announce the final artists who will be touring with the BIG DAY OUT plus the local additions in each city.

Be on guard for the avant-garde when FANTOMAS lurch back into life at BIG DAY OUT 2009. Created in the murky depths of Mike Patton's busy music laboratory in California, FANTOMAS's four studio albums have been noisy, cartoonish, sci-fi, filmic, heavy, hilarious, and always experimental. With Patton joined by Buzz Osborne on guitar (Melvins), Trevor Dunn on bass (Mr Bungle) and Dale Crover on drums (Melvins), this super-tight band creates sounds and energy previously thought not humanly possible. FANTOMAS are coming to put a little delirium in your BIG DAY OUT. (All Shows)

Who is that man in the three-piece suit and the natty brogues? He is SON OF DAVE, and to witness him at BIG DAY OUT is to witness the blues dragged kicking and howling into the 21st Century. It all began one Christmas in Manitoba, Canada, when father gave young Benjamin Darvill a harmonica and a shaker. Now he stirs thoughts of Beck, the White Stripes and Tom Waits all rolled into one. As Dazed & Confused put it: “Touring the globe with just a harmonica, a microphone and a stack of 45s, this one man band has become one of the most entertaining live performers in the world”. See SON OF DAVE summon the future of the blues at Lilyworld during BIG DAY OUT 2009. (All shows)
