The Big Day Out 2012 line-up drip-feed…

Instead of arriving in one triumphant installment, this summer’s Big Day Out line-up is coming bit by bit. The festival is set to announce a host of acts tonight Thursday 29 September between 8pm and 10pm, and we’ll be updating this story every half hour. Then the rest of the line-up lands tomorrow morning.
