"Former System Of A Down singer and sometime New Zealand resident Serj Tankian heads the latest list of artists announced to play the Big Day Out.
The manic frontman, who has been solo since SOAD went on hiatus in 2006 and released his debut album Elect the Dead last year, will bring his politically charged rock to Mt Smart Stadium on January 16, seven years after System played the Auckland event.
Tankian, who keeps a home in New Zealand, will be joined by Florida hot shots Black Kids, whose debut album Partie Traumatic was released earlier this year and is one of the party rock albums of the year.
And speaking of dancing, making return visits to the Big Day Out are British electropop band Hot Chip and hip-hopper Lupe Fiasco, who both played the 2007 show."
