The Big Day Out line-up for 2014 is set to be announced on August 1st, but with a little under a week to go until the official announcement rumours have begun to surface, particularly about Pearl Jam. Triple M radio reporter Nui Te Koha all but confirmed their participation in the festival, announcing on air; “it’s rumoured, there’s lots of talk on the internet going around about it and I’m gonna lock it in – Pearl Jam.”
With Big Day Out returning to New Zealand at new venue Western Springs (thank god), this news is especially relevant for Kiwi’s. I for one would love to see Pearl Jam come here.
Pearl Jam are set to release their new LP Lightning Bolt in October, and if you missed their lead single from the upcoming record, check it out here: http://sonicarcadium.com/2013/07/12/new-pearl-jam-mind-your-manners/
