Big Day Out promoters have just released the first list of acts in the line-up for the 2008 event!
On the bill so far are - Grinspoon, Arcade Fire, The Hilltop Hoods, LCD Sound System, Sarah Blasko, Paul Kelly, Midnight Juggernaughts, Faker, Something With Numbers, Dizzee Rascal, and eccentric Icelandic singer Bjork!
But the big ticket, the question on everyone's lips, is who will be headlining? Rumours have been circulating that metal rockers Metallica might make an appearance, but nothing has been confirmed as yet.
