After a below par performance in 2012, in terms of both the line up and the attendance, it looks like Big Day Out is returning with a vengeance in 2013 and ready to re-claim its status as the #1 festival in Australia.

Already the rumour mill is working overtime and many industry insiders have speculated that bands such as the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, AC/DC, The Throne (Jay Z & Kanye West) and Blink 182 will be headlining the tour.

Punters will have to wait until 12.01am next Monday (16.07.2012) to find the official line up. One thing is certain and that is Big Day Out 2013 will be one of the best yet!
