UPDATED 5TH NOV

Okay, the first lineup announcement for the BDO 2009 happened today. We already knew about Neil Young, My Morning Jacket and the likelihood of TV On The Radio playing and the following have been confirmed for the Australian leg:
Neil Young, My Morning Jacket, TV on the Radio, Arctic Monkeys, The Prodigy, The Living End, Pendulum, Cut Copy, Bullet For My Valentine, Cog, The Grates, Youth Group, The Ting Tings, TZU, Tiki Taane, Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Sneaky Sound System, Simian Mobile Disco and Birds of Tokyo.
I’d hoped for a few more interesting additions to the rumours but I suppose they’ll hold them back for the second round of acts. In most cases the BDO will be sold out by then of course!
Tickets are $132 +bf and go on sale October 10th.
