Remembering Big Day Out 2002: SOAD, Silverchair, Garbage, Alien Ant Farm

| January 23, 2022

Double J continued their tradition of following triple j’s Hottest 100 with a re-run of the countdown from 20 years previous; a countdown that included multiple references to the 2002 Big Day Out.

The Hottest 100 of 2001 was held on the January 26 public holiday in 2002 (aka Invasion Day). Throughout the countdown, a number of calls were made to artists playing at the 2002 Big Day Out, which was happening in Sydney on the same day.

Loads of Big Day Out artists made it into triple j’s Hottest of 2001, including tourists New Order, Garbage, Basement Jaxx, System of a Down, Alien Ant Farm and The White Stripes and local acts Regurgitator, Gerling, Something For Kate, John Butler Trio, Spiderbait, Superheist, Eskimo Joe and Machine Gun Fellatio.

Take a look at the complete Big Day Out 2002 lineup, as well as the original poster art, playing times and a clip of System of a Down performing ‘Chop Suey!’, which placed at #3 in the Hottest 100.
