Yeah, NSW. Sydney sold out in 10 minutes or something.

 

I went in 06. One of the best experiences ever, except the water down my pants, but that's another story altogether. Have you been before?

Hahaha, yeah. I was at the front of one of the main stages watching Kings of Leon and the guy up the front is spraying the crowd with a hose. His mate comes over and they start to have a chat, and the hose was right in the direction of my pants going through the holes in the steel barrier. THEN I'm yelling at him and he comes over to me only to increase the pressure of the water on my crouch because he can't hear me properly!

 

Now that I think about it, it was around 40*c so it wasn't all bad. tounge.gif

I am not paying $160 NZD to see one band that only has a 45 minute set. I would much rather Rage Against the Machine did their own show. That I would pay $160 NZD to see. No other artists appeal to me this year, which is just like last year. Best line up ever would have been: Shihad, Iggy Pop, Franz, and then the White Stripes. 4 Bands I wanted to see and have seen. Can't beat that value for money.

 

So in conclusion, f*ck Big Day Out it is now more about the money ( $160 in '08 and $100 in '06 ).

I wasn't planning on going this year, not really a big fan of most of the lineup so it didn't justify spending $130 ona ticket.

 

Turns out my cousins are coming over to see it though, mum is buying me one so I can go witt them...sweet. Krafty Kuts will be awesome.

No. The only good band up there is the Hilltop Hoods and I could probably pay less than $130 to see them on their own.

You suck, gtfo

Likewise.

Are you serious? Thats a solid lineup. Then again, their isn't much in the way of rap or hip hop, which is what you listen to if im not mistaken.

Awesome music. Rap infused with rock with heavy political motivations.

Nah man it was for the Perth one. I just wanted to hurry up and get rid of it. Practically everyone else was getting $150 for it too so it's all good.

 

As for the killings...well just wait for the PM, you'll know what to do.

What a f*cking day, had a awesome time. Rage went off (mayhem in the pit), only got to see a bit of Carl Cox (was awesome though) in the lillyworld joint after watching some loose jamaican woman singing constantly about her tw*t and her love for cock which was pretty amusing after a couple of roundies and a fair few beers

 

Later got ejected from the venue for scaling a fence into the lillyworld after watching Dizzee Rascals who were wicked, props to the chicks getting their tits out too wink.gif

 

Jumped back into the showgrounds over a cut barbed wire fence (with a 10 foot drop on the other side) and over another fence while being chased by a guard who looked to be recruited right from the taliban, wasnt gonna miss rage for the world, i mean...kicked out for jumping a fence? Fark offff.

 

Grinspoon were good live, silverchair was predictibly sh*t...

 

Ratm was a godsend after standing through the torture that is bjorks voice, was a bit annoying bout the power outage during Testify but everyone was still singing along not to mention crushing everyone around them hahaha. Came out drenched with sweat at the end, was so f*cking hot in the crowd, dumb c*nts couldnt get the sprinklers back on...but was all worth it in the end.

 

f*cken wicked.

@mr_ed: Haha sweet, Were they as good as they used to be? had mates telling me they were great, but Zach was lacking the angst from back in the day.

 

Oh and did you check out karnivool?

I reckon they were great, zach sounded good, but he really didnt sound 100%. But I was no where near complaining, all round awesome performance.

 

I'd hate to have his tour schedule though, hes been touring aus/nz over the last few weeks and is heading to japan to play in a couple of days.
