For release – Tuesday, 27 September 2011: Come with us on a journey through time, back to 1992 where it all began for the Big Day Out! It’s our 20thAnniversary and to celebrate this mighty milestone we’re cracking open our Vault so you can join us on a trip down memory lane, all in the lead up to the exciting announcement of our 2012 Big Day Out line-up!
Think of our Vault like an Advent calendar on our website where each day we’ll unveil the years, starting with 1992 and working our way through to 2012. We’ll let you know when a year is being unlocked via our official Facebook and Twitter so be sure to join our community! Once a year is unlocked, simply click on the Festival poster and you’ll be rewarded with a time capsule of that year including the line-up, memorabilia, video, ticket, images and merchandise.  Expect to be wowed by incredible line-ups, awesome music and some questionable fashion!
Once we’ve opened the 2011 Vault, it’ll be time for us to look forward in the best way we know how:  announcing the line-up to the 2012 Big Day Out! This year it’s all happening a little differently: on the evening of Thursday, 29 September we will announce seventeen acts from our first announcement via our official Facebook and Twitter (make sure you are following us!) then it’s time to get some beauty sleep before Tom and Alex announce three of the headliners and another special treat during triple j breakfast.
