ARCADE FIRE

Big Day Out 2014 headliners ARCADE FIRE will be performing two very special sideshows in Sydney and Melbourne this January.


Having just released their fourth studio album Reflektor, ARCADE FIRE, have spent the better part of this year under a shroud of mystery, performing pop-up shows around the world as The Reflektors. Three years since their Grammy Award winning Album of the Year The Suburbs, ARCADE FIRE have been making waves with Reflektor debuting at the top of charts around the world.


“Reflektor is closer to turning-point classics such as U2′s Achtung Baby and Radiohead’s Kid A – a thrilling act of risk and renewal… and a greater fear of the average, of merely being liked.” – Rolling Stone


You don’t want to miss out on ARCADE FIRE’s ethereal performances this Summer.

SNOOP DOGG aka SNOOP LION & MAC MILLER

SNOOP DOGG aka SNOOP LION has announced Big Day Out 2014 sideshows with special guest MAC MILLER.


As the go-to-man to get your booty movin’, SNOOP DOGG aka SNOOP LION has solidified his position as the world’s leading hip hop artist. Recently adopting the moniker Snoop Lion after an inspirational trip to Jamaica, these shows will be the first time Australians will see the reinvented ‘reggae’ superstar live on stage performing a mix of Lion tracks and his greatest Dogg hits!


Joining Da Big Bo$$ Dogg on these very smooth shows is none-other than MAC MILLER, fellow-Big Day Out artist, close friend of Snoop’s and one of the brightest stars in the hip hop scene. 21 year old Mac Miller has been making huge waves in the music world with two US top #3 albums already under his belt.

& FLOSSTRADAMUS

This is it… One for the ages. MAJOR LAZER, SNOOP DOGG aka SNOOP LION and FLOSSTRADAMUS are coming together for what will well be the feel-good party of the season in Brisbane this Summer.


MAJOR LAZER are the ultimate party personified, renowned for their insane live shows and collaborations with everyone from Peaches to Vampire Weekend. SNOOP DOGG aka SNOOP LION is the man that needs no introduction; since the release of Doggystyle Snoop has been on a non-stop ride, now a bona fide music legend, humanitarian and, well, The Doggfather of hip hop.


Chicago-based pair FLOSSTRADAMUS are leaders in the modern Trap scene, Mad Decent Block Party staples and true believers in the mantra “Peace, Love, Unity, Respect… Now Twerk.”

Major Lazer

MAJOR LAZER & FLOSSTRADAMUS

MAJOR LAZER are going to tear the roof off two sideshows in Melbourne and Sydney this January, thanks to a little help from their friends in FLOSSTRADAMUS.


MAJOR LAZER and FLOSSTRADAMUS have let hoards of know what’s up when they take the stage at Mad Decent’s block parties across the USA. Together they have partied and made beautiful music, with FLOSSTRADAMUS releasing a booty-droppin’ remix of MAJOR LAZER hit, ‘Original Don’, which has received millions of views online.


These Big Day Out sideshows are going to explode. We don’t want to seem concerned, but you have been warned…

primus

AN EVENING WITH PRIMUS

Often imitated but never replicated, PRIMUS are as unique as they come. Led by Les Claypool, one of the most chaotic bass players in history, they have remained a boundary-pushing force throughout their illustrious career.


“..the scathing chuckles of Frank Zappa, Rush’s tech-metal fluency and the improvising verve of the Grateful Dead.” – Rolling Stone


2014 will mark 3 decades in the game for California’s PRIMUS. To celebrate, we are inviting you to spend An Evening With Primus in Sydney this January.


PRIMUS will be playing two full sets, and in their most intimate setting to date in Australia, this will be a dream come true for any PRIMUS fan.

GROUPLOVE & CSS

Get your dancing shoes on; indie-pop favourites GROUPLOVE and those sexy Brazilians in CSS are coming together for two fun-as-hell sideshows this January.


GROUPLOVE started the party this year with ‘Ways To Go’ – an anthem amongst friendship circles and downright one of the catchiest songs in recent times. This is perfectly paired with CSS, who have what The New York Times perfectly described as “A gleeful throwback to early-1980′s art-school pop.”


Grab the person next to you, start dancing and make new friends this Summer.

THE DEFTONES live show isn’t one that’s easily forgotten. After selling out their last Australian tour in support of their latest album Koi No Yokan, crowds of thousands were left desperate for more.

“a gritty, grinding showstopper of metal and unapologetic energy.”
- Consequence of Sound

As one of the recent additions to the Big Day Out 2014 lineup, it is our pleasure to announce that DEFTONES will be performing a sideshow in Sydney this month.

Don’t miss your chance to get up close and personal with one of metal’s greats.

THE HIVES

Well hello dear, dear people!

You are going to be simply over the moon because those wonderful Swedish gentlemen in THE HIVES are joining you all for their only Australian headline show at 170 Russell on Tuesday January 21st (in the year 2014 of course).

THE HIVES will be spinning around and dancing along while they play notes from their latest round music disc Lex Hives, which NME very greatly described as “premium-grade cartoon garage-rock in the AC/DC vein, which deep down everyone in the world knows is the best music there is.”

Well we just cannot argue with that, now can we.
