Tool headline the Big Day Out
Today’s announcement doesn’t include several recent internet rumours, with Soundgarden, Hole, Weezer, Stone Temple Pilots and Blink 182 all incorrectly suggested as headlining acts across various blog sites.
A second line-up announcement is due later this year.

The Naked and Famous
The Jim Jones Revue
Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros
