One of Australia's most beloved touring summer festivals, Big Day Out, has added three new big names to its 2014 lineup.
Beady Eye, comprised of rock 'n roll royalty Liam Gallagher, Gem Archer, Andy Bell, and Chris Sharrock of Oasis and Jay Mehler of Kasabian, will come to Australia for the very first time for Big Day Out (BDO).
Alternative metal band Deftones have also been added to BDO's lineup and promise their internationally renowned show of new (Koi No Yokan) and old (em class="italic_ttf">White Pony) hits.
Last but not least, BDO organizers have confirmed The Hives. It may not be their first time in Australia but their consistently-praised live show is never to be missed.
