Blur will not be having a big day out next year, or at least not at Australian festival Big Day Out anyway. They had some scathing words for the organisers as they pulled out: "We've done our very best to work with the organisers and considered every option to make it happen, but they've let us down and let everyone else down too." It's always worse when they're not angry, just disappointed.
