Big Day Out organisers had a special treat for this year’s big line up reveal: Andrew W.K. with piece of paper in hand read out the highly contentious, much-speculated Big Day Out 2011 set list, which includes Tool as the major headline act (as guessed by a few of our readers), a super quick return to Australia for LCD Soundsystem (after their recent visit for Splendour In The Grass), and a random mix of others.
