Soundwave Festival have just unveiled the line-up for the 2015 installation of the festival and it might just be one for the history books.
Earlier in the day, the Australian festival revealed that it will become a two-day festival with half the bands performing on one day and the other half on the second day in order to “minimize clashes, give bands longer set, better staging production [and] infrastructure” as well as “give fans better value for money and a less stressful day.”
FAITH No More, Soundgarden, Slipknot, Slash and Fall Out Boy are just some that are set to headline the festival. Also on the bill, former My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way, Incubus, Ministry, Judas Priest, Godsmack, Papa Roach, Fear Factory, New Found Glory, Area 7, Tonight Alive, Escape the Fate, Lagwagon, All Time Low, Of Mice and Men, Hollywood Undead, Atreyu, Godflesh, Crown the Empire and more were announced with reportedly more bands to be revealed in the near future.
The list of venues for the traveling show will feature Bonython Park in Adelaide on February 21 and 22, Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne on February 21 and 22, Olympic Park in Sydney on February 28 and March 1 and Brisbane Showgrounds on February 28 and March 1. Sadly, the show will not be making a pit stop in Perth due to bad ticket sales in that area.
Tickets for the two-day festival will cost $188, plus booking fees. Tickers will go on sale this Friday (August 22) to Soundwave members, while general ticket sales will begin on Friday, August 29.
