A search for heavy exotic diboson resonances decaying to llqq final states is presented using pp collision data collected with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. The analysis uses a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 20.3 fb^-1 at sqrt(s) = 8 TeV collected between April and December 2012. No significant excess of data events over the predicted Standard Model background is observed and 95% confidence level upper limits are set on the product of the production cross-section and the branching ratio for spin-2 Kaluza-Klein gravitons predicted by the bulk Randall-Sundrum model and for Extended Gauge Model W’ bosons. These results are subsequently combined with limits obtained from searches using the lvll, lvqq, and qqqq final states, and new mass limits are set on both signal models.
