This is a comprehensive listing of artists and bands who have performed at Big Day Out listed by year. Big Day Out is an Australian music festival which began in 1992 in Sydney and has expanded since to include several Australian venues and also Auckland, New Zealand. Each year, the line-up of artists changes dramatically, generally maintaining rock as the focal music style, but also featuring many hip-hop, electronica, blues and roots artists. Since its beginning, the line ups have included international acts such as Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Chemical Brothers, Tool, Marilyn Manson, Muse, Nine Inch Nails and Red Hot Chili Peppers while also promoting local Australian and New Zealand artists such as Regurgitator, Powderfinger, Grinspoon, Silverchair, Steering by Stars and many others.

Notes

  • A ^ With no event in 2015, Cosmic Psychos are the only band to play both the first Big Day Out and the last.

2015[edit]

There will be no Big Day Out in 2015.[1] It was announced on 26 June 2014 that the 2015 Big Day Out had been cancelled. The announcement came after long-running speculation over the future of the summer festival and revelations the day before from Sydney Showground executives that festival organisers had cancelled their 2015 venue booking.[2][3]
