Blur have continued their swipe at the Big Day Out organisers after withdrawing from the Australian music festival today.

“Devastated Blur won’t be at BDO ’14,” the UK band posted in a tweet today. “Shifting goalposts & worked hard to go, but we & Blur fans so let down by very challenging organisers”.

Earlier on Facebook Blur blamed the promoters stating, “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”.

Pearl Jam, Blur and Snoop Dogg were the three main attractions for Big Day Out 2014.

Big Day Out will start in Auckland, New Zealand on January 17, 2014.
