I’m extremely doubtful this is the case, but in the last few days a Twitter account called BigDayOutSpy has been leaking the alleged lineup for the 2012 Big Day Out. Acts so far have been somewhat interesting, without being amazing until this post earlier this evening:
A Perfect Circle are the other Green/Converse stage headliner at Big Day Out!
So far, I found the leaks believable, but to be honest I’m not sure I can see A Perfect Circle playing the Big Day Out next year. Headlining the small stage sounds tantalising though (however it would be annoying if the rumoured Pearl Jam main stage headliner were true).
Definitely file in the “I’ll believe it when I see it confirmed” category…
For the record, the Big Day Out Spy alleges the following lineup (in no particular order):
- The Killers
- A Perfect Circle
- Chase and Status
- Florence and the Machine
- The Decemberists
- Biffy Clyro
- Cut Copy
- Boy and Bear
- Architecture in Helsinki
- Josh Pyke
- The Vaccines
Other rumours suggest Pearl Jam will headline, and Kasabian & My Chemical Romance will also play.
Update: A Perfect Circle on their Facebook page this morning mentioned “That’s unfortunately not true” so I guess this myth is pretty much busted.
