Arcade Fire Big Day Out Sideshows

One part of the BDO2014 headlining trifecta Arcade Fire have now been confirmed for sideshows, throwing their own shows into the flurry of announcements to come through this morning. The Canadian troupe will be stopping by Melbourne and Sydney.

This will be the band’s first Australian jaunt off the back of the super fresh new full-length, the vivid and familiar Reflektor, which dropped at the end of an extensive marketing campaign. The indie powerhouse pulled a number of stunts to impress their following, even going as far as to perform as The Reflektors for a handful of ‘secret’ performances.

The James Murphy-produced record will be well represented when the band follows through with their headlining commitments at the upcoming Big Day Out as well, alongside Britpop’s Blur and grunge’s Pearl Jam, with plenty of nods to the Arcade Fire of yore.
