Four years after headlining the inaugural Pyramid Rock Festival, Regurgitator are back to do it again. The Brisbane trio have been drafted in to replace Scottish rockers Biffy Clyro, who have had to postpone their upcoming Australian tour due to illness. “The Gurge” will now play on the main stage at 1am on the first night of Pyramid (December 29) with bluejuice moving up to take Biffy’s main stage spot at 6.35pm on December 31. Three-day tickets to the event are sold out, but there are some two-day passes left. The Pyramid Rock Festival runs from December 29-January 1 in Phillip Island, Victoria.

We thought last month’s dismal second announcement was the last we’d have to report on the 2010 Big Day Out. How wrong we were. The news this time around isn’t all doom and gloom, however, with some quality local acts added to what’s been described as the “final” bill. Fresh from their Homebake triumph on the weekend, Tumbleweed will now perform at the Melbourne and second Sydney leg of the event. Meanwhile, M+N Readers Poll winners Wagons and Sydney indie rockers The Scare will play all local dates.
Other local additions to the sold-out event include I Heart Hiroshima, Mexico City and The Butcher Birds at the Gold Coast (January 17); Seekae, Regular John, Oh Mercy, Catcall and Danimals at the first Sydney leg (January 22); Seekae, Songs and Sherlock’s Daughter at the second Sydney leg (January 23); Dan Sultan, The Crayon Fields and St Helens in Melbourne (January 26); The Swiss, Hawks of Alba, Femme Fatales, The Thieves, Loot & Plunder and Se Bon Ki Ra in Adelaide (January 29); and The Novacaines, Burgerkill, The Chevelles, Abbe May, Blue Shaddy, Human Extinction Project, Arts Martial and Emperors in Perth (January 31).
