The Australian megafestival has revealed its initial line-up for 2015 - and for the first time ever, Soundwave will be spread over two days in each city.
Look at that line-up. It's a beauty, isn't it? Here it is in text form:
ADELAIDE 21 FEBRUARY / SYDNEY 28 FEBRUARY
MELBOURNE 22 FEBRUARY / BRISBANE 01 MARCH
Faith No More, Soundgarden, Incubus, Lamb Of God, Ministry, Antemasque, Gerard Way, Mayhem, New Found Glory, Fear Factory, Hollywood Undead, Atreyu, The Aquabats, Area 7, Godflesh, Crown The Empire, The Interrupters, Icon For Hire, Emily's Army, Patent Pending, Fireworks, The Bennies, The Color Morale, Monuments, Nothing More, Deathstars, Ne Obliviscaris, The Treatment
MELBOURNE 21 FEBRUARY / BRISBANE 28 FEBRUARY
ADELAIDE 22 FEBRUARY / SYDNEY 01 MARCH
Slipknot, Slash, Marilyn Manson, Fall Out Boy, Judas Priest, Godsmack, All Time Low, Papa Roach, Of Mice & Men, Escape The Fate, Apocalyptica, Lagwgon, Tonight Alive, Crossfaith, Butcher Babies, Confession, The Swellers, Conditions, Coldrain, King 810, Dayshell, This Wild Life
As you can see, this year, the festival will be spread across two days in Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. What that means is "better value, better staging, better production, longer sets and minimised clashes," according to them. Sounds good to us!
The days will criss-cross between cities. So "all ‘DAY 1’ artists will play the first day in each city and all ‘DAY 2’ artist will play the second day in each city." Makes sense.
21 & 22 FEBRUARY, 2015 ADELAIDE Bonython Park
21 & 22 FEBRUARY, 2015 MELBOURNE Flemington Racecourse
28 FEBRUARY & 11 MARCH, 2015 SYDNEY Olympic Park
