Big Day Out 2010
Ok, so on paper the lineup is pretty freaking cool. Top acts, top albums!
But if you look at the Aus track record for the last 12 (give or take a few) months, we've seen them all.
Dizzee's been here twice in the last two years. Which means I've seen him 4 times.
Peaches has been here twice in the last 14 months, which means I've seen her too.
Luckily they both have relatively new albums to pump out to my eager ears.
Lily? I can't count the amount of times I've seen her in the last 3 years. It actually confuses me to try.
Calvin, Mars Volta, Muse, The Horrors etc. etc. etc. have all been here in the past few years.
I sound like I'm complaining? Well yes, I'm a little miffed that there's not someone brand spanking amazing/new/old/outstanding/any of the above playing.
BUT! That didn't stop me from going ahead and organising a mate with a credit card to buy me tickets. And the lineup certainly didn't stop me from stressing out when she hadn't called me at 0005 hours!
So, it may be a bit of a reused and reworked mush of recent years, but Peaches, Dizzee, Lily and the Horrors....I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOU AGAIN!
