IT turns out we were right about Tool, Iggy and the Stooges, Grinderman and Deftones but wrong about Soundgarden for Big Day Out's 2011 line-up.
Instead of the reunited Seattle grunge gods playing their Badmotorfinger record to celebrate its 20th anniversary, it will be the Scottish Primal Scream performing their two-decades-young record Screamadelica, which is just as good.
The Big Day Out team had more than a few surprises in their first-round announce, which was scheduled to hit the interweb at midnight.
For Sydney festivalgoers, the major change is the event is back on Australia Day at the Sydney Showgrounds after a few years of Melbourne claiming the public holiday for event.
Mysteriously missing from the first reveal is Blink-182 who everyone thought was in since Channel V's Danny Clayton tweeted they were on the line-up a couple of weeks ago.
The ultimate festival band Rammstein are back for the first time in a decade, while other international repeat offenders include Lupe Fiasco and the John Farnham of dance, LCD Soundsystem, who allege these will be the last shows.
Newcomers include Bloody Beetroots Death Crew 77, M.I.A. Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Jim Jones Revue, The Black Keys, Die Antwoord, CSS, Plan B and Crystal Castles.
The Australian contingent is stellar, led by John Butler Trio, Airbourne, Birds Of Tokyo, Angus and Julia Stone, Children Collide, Dead Letter Circus, Bliss N Eso, Gyroscope and Operator Please.
Tickets go on sale via bigdayout.com and ticketmaster.com.au on October 6, with a limit of four per person.
