Soundwave Festival Lineup Announced

No Tool news here, but news that I’m sure will please many Tool fans:

Nine Inch Nails have been announced as the headline act for next years Soundwave Festival.  This festival, which has a bigger emphasis on metal/hard rock/punk bands travels all around Australia this year and in my opinion is likely to have a much better lineup than the Big Day Out.

Many Fourtheye readers will probably agree that apart from one or two bands, the Big Day Out lineups in recent history have been dissappointing.  2009’s BDO looks to be no exception with Neil Young and My Morning Jacket confirmed as being on the event.

Anyway, other bands on the Soundwave lineup include Alice In Chains, Bloodhound Gang, Lamb of God, In Flames and Scars on Broadway.  Check out the Soundwave website for a list of the remaining bands.

The festival will be appearing at:

  • 21st Feb Brisbane – RNA Showgrounds
  • 22nd Feb Sydney – Venue TBC
  • 27th Feb Melbourne – Melbourne Showgrounds
  • 28th Feb Adelaide – Adelaide Showgrounds
  • 2nd march Perth – Blue Steel Oval
Unless I get hit by a truck, I’ll be at the Adelaide show, especially since NIN have skipped town the last couple of tours.

I think it’s worth noting that this festival is notorius for being a poorly organised event.  Last year about 10 bands pulled out including about 3 headliners.  Don’t expect all the bands listed to appear on the day.   The forums were plagued with reviews commenting on poor sound throughout the day – and they don’t offer refunds if the headliners pull out.

Also worth noting that apart from the last 2 bands, most bands during the day only get a measly 30 minutes to play which is pretty crap IMO.
