The BIG DAY OUT is almost upon us!

BDO promoters, Lees and West, have announced the third and final round of international and local artists who will be touring nationally for Big Day Out 2007.

And if you're a Hip-Hop Head or sizzle to the sounds of the Boiler Room the news is good!

Below are the newly added Hip-Hop & Dance Acts

DIGITAL PRIMATE is an underground legend. Since his first album release in '95, DIGITAL PRIMATE has pushed the boundaries for Australian techno with his solid and dirty mix of ghetto techno, proper electro and Chicago style booty. With the release of his new album Siege Mentality, expect to see DIGITAL PRIMATE at the global forefront of electronica. Don't forget, we saw him first… and this won't be the last you'll see of Digital Primate. (ALL AUST SHOWS)

Since stepping up to the decks in 1996, MARK MURPHY has become one of Sydney's most loved and respected DJs. Champion of the electro explosion and the rave sounds emerging from Europe, his talents have been in demand at every major club and party in Sydney from Mardi Gras to Field Day. Make sure you get your dancing shoes on and boogie along to MARK MURPHY to your heart's content at the BIG DAY OUT. (ALL AUST SHOWS)

There are many DJs in New Zealand, but none with the combination of skill and musical knowledge of DJ SIR-VERE. A hip hop pioneer, he's always been at the forefront of the movement, learning tricks of the trade from the likes of Grandmaster Flash. Now master of his art, Sir-Vere will take you on a hip hop journey serving up one hell of a block-rockin' show for fans at the BDO. (NZ + EC [East Coast])

BIG DAY OUT will also play host to the HEAVY FLINT SHOW featuring Keith from The Prodigy. Moving on from his previous solo projects "Flint" and "Clever Brains Fryin", Keith will be igniting BIG DAY OUT with his psychosomatic antics, teaming up with Heavy G for a set that will feature dancefloor killers aplenty. (EC)

Not only is P-MONEY hailed as New Zealand's finest hip-hop producer, he is also regarded as one of NZ's best DJs rocking clubs all over the world and spinning alongside the world°¶s finest DJs. From making his name via DJ competitions and his ongoing production efforts, P-Money has firmly established himself as one of the most prominent names in New Zealand music. (EC)

FOREIGN HEIGHTS is Australian hip hop to the power of three. For the first time in Oz hip hop history, three of this country's hottest (and we do mean good looking) and most talented hip hop stars Trey, Maya Jupiter and DJ Nick Toth come together with ten years of hardcore hip hop behind them to produce the freshest beats and rhymes for your soul this summer. FOREIGN HEIGHTS will be running away to join the BIG DAY OUT circus and rocking the crowd along the East Coast. (EC)

In many ways, TZU (pronounced Tee Zed Yoo) are the Bill Murray of Australian hip hop. Funny but serious. Popular but arthouse. TZU stand out from the crowd with their unique instrumentation with Joelistics & Seed MC playing guitars, keyboards and drums, resulting in a mash of hip hop and blues, rock and pop. Renowned for their ultra-hyped live shows, they will surely rock your sweet socks off at the BDO. (EC).

From Japan we welcome DJ GEDO SUPER MEGA BITCH MRS FLINT 4 - little Mrs megabitch from hell! Unconcerned with the trilemma of genre, pitch and style, MEGA BITCH sets her own standards, does her own thing and continues the tradition handed down from Bruce Lee who taught, "Don't think, FEEEEEEEL!" (EC)

For a change of pace, listen up for the wisdom of the Jah Messenger, the reggae master, LUCIANO (Jamaica) at the BIG DAY OUT. Renowned worldwide for his rasta message of love and peace set to irresistible melodies and mellow, soulful vocals, LUCIANO will tantalize fans with his wit, charisma and good-lovin reggae vibes.
