on September 27, 2010, 11:25am

If you have’t had your coffee yet this morning, you’re sure in for some eyebrow raises today for several reasons. First, Andrew W.K. has drank enough coffee for the both of us and has announced the first batch of artists for the Australia and New Zealand’s Big Day Out Festival 2011. Second, hearing Andrew W.K. say the word “antipodal” is hilarious on several levels. And third, and most importantly, the lineup is pretty stacked:

Tool, Rammstein, Iggy Pop & The Stooges, Deftones, M.I.A., LCD Soundsystem, Andrew W.K., The Deftones, The Black Keys, Die Antwoord, Grinderman, Lupe Fiasco, Wolfmother, Primal Scream performing Screamadelica in its entirety, Booka Shade, Ratatat [Tat?], CSS, Vitalic, The Jim Jones Review, Plan B, The Naked and the Famous, Kids of 88 and Crystal Castles.

There are a host of other local Australian artists as well, including Birds of Tokyo, John Butler Trio and many more. Check out all the information you’ll need  at the festival’s updated website.

Or, If you want the full lineup, the  latest news and rumors on future acts to be added, in accordance with Mr. W.K.’s histrionics, be sure to bookmark BDO’s Festival Outlook page for all the latest festival information.
