Getting drenched in sweat from the people you love while seeing live music in the beating sun is a fine Australian tradition. Another year has passed, and it’s time to get your sleeveless t shirts ready because Big Day Out 2014 tickets are about to go on sale.

The 2014 lineup is looking like a party we don’t want to miss. Sure, we’re going to be thirsty as hell in the inevitable heat, but at least Snoop Lion will be there to bless us with a contact buzz. Major Lazer, Flosstradamus and Mac Miller are all slated to appear as well. So, after we get our hands on a holographic ticket, we’ll be getting our freak on in a sea of young hotties come January.

The lineup includes these acts, and many more

Pearl Jam
Arcade Fire
Snoop Dogg aka Snoop Lion (performing all his greatest hits)
Major Lazer
Steve Angello
The Lumineers
