Big Day Out Sideshows Announced

Big Day Out already blew our minds with its mammoth lineup for next January, but now there's plenty more fun to be had with the slew of amazing sideshows that have just been announced. 

So who's doing 'em? Try festival headliners The Killers for starters. Then we've got the always-evolving Band of Horses, buzzy newcomers Alabama Shakes, professional punk rockers Off! and just one show from pop royalty the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. For the more electronically inclined, you can get your groove on to the unstoppable Crystal Castles, digi-pop innovators Animal Collective and the "kings of Italian noise," the Bloody Beetroots. Oh, and there's also fraternal Nashville duo Jeff the Brotherhood, the "saviour of blues" Gary Clark Jr and Dutch DJ Nicky Romero.

Wow, we need to sit down. Details below, dudes.
