Big Day Out timetable

January 28th, 2006 - Princes Park South, Melbourne.

The colour changes indicate a clash between a band that I'm seeing and one that I want to catch on another stage. Black is used for the bands I will see, grey indicates those I can't see.

20.00 - 21.00 The Sleepy Jackson (Converse Essential Stage)
20.30 - 21.30 The Presets (Boiler Room)
20.30 - 22.00 Tool (Blue Stage)

I'm pretty lucky this year, the majority of the bands I want to see are on the main stages, so their start times are staggered. Last time I went to BDO a lot of my bands were spread through the smaller stages so I spent the whole day deciding which of my favourite bands I wanted to miss.

The biggest disappointment this year is that I'll miss The Presets' entire set, and I wish I could see more of Little Birdy... but considering the rest of my schedule I don't have much to complain about.

    Terrible lineup.

    Well we can't all expect Opeth and Porcupine Tree to play Big Day Out, now can we? I think with your music taste it's quite obvious that mainstream music festivals will not appeal to you, so going out of your way to knock it seems a little stupid.

    BDO has seen better lineups, thats all I'm saying.

    Fair enough. Personally, I'd pay the price of admission to see any one of Tool, Muse or My Chemical Romance on their own, so it's a great lineup for me.

    Really? You'd pay 120 bucks or however much it was just to see one of those three bands?

    Absolutely. I was prepared to pay $150 to see Tool (but didn't get tickets), and the other two I would easily pay that much if I had the money to spare. But as luck would have it, I can see all three (and many more) for $120, so huzzah for that.

    Here's my timetable: Should meet up, if you're interested. Not enough (only 2) of my friends would go. :(

    Very good lineup I'd say. Your timetable would be identical to mine if I was to go.

    Richaod: Sure, I'll be spending the day floating between different groups of people, I'm sure I can find some time for you. :P Our schedules line up a fair bit so we'll be in the same area most of the day anyway haha Talk to me on MSN about it next time you're online.

    I'm really looking forward to the BDO this year, I absolutely love the lineup, hence why I'm going to both Gold Coast and Sydney shows. I was a bit disappointed with some of the clashes like Snowman with Killers and You Am I with Muse, but I'll take the international acts over the Aussie bands any day. Bring on Tool.

    Saws Tool yesterday at the BDO in Auckland. You're in for a great show. However I doubt you'll get the duet on Sober with Serj from System Of A Down that we got. Man it was awesome.

    Awesome, I'll go check it out.

    Sin duda a mi juicio la banda que mejor interpreta el rock en el siglo 21. En la proxima decada es cuando descubriremos su verdadera dimension e influencia.
