Soundwave Becomes Two Big Days Out

Soundwave will be a two-day festival across Australia in 2015.

Promoter AJ Maddah has confirmed via Twitter that Soundwave will be held in Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane but that Perth has been removed from the schedule.

‘So here’s the deal: SW15 will be held over 2 days in each city – Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane” he tweeted.

“So half the bands will play day 1. The other half play day 2. They criss-cross Saturday/Sunday in each city”.

“Adelaide & Melbourne will be the 1st weekend of the festival. The dates for these 2 cities are Saturday 21 and Sunday 22”.

“Sydney and Brisbane will be the 2nd weekend of the festival; held over Saturday 28 and Sunday March 1”

“The ticket price for the 2 days will be the same as last year. $185 + booking fees. These will be limited in number”

“There will also be a number of day tickets available at $120 + booking fees”.

“Putting the line-up across 2 days enables to minimise clashes; give bands longer sets, better staging, production & infrastructure”.

“I am hoping to that this will give fans better value for money and a less stressful day”.

Maddah is also expecting to deliver a stronger line-up with the festivals format change. “In recent years we have lost great bands over too many bands wanting to play after dark. This new set-up also gives us twice the dark,” he added.

So far only Fear Factory and Ne Obliviscaris have been confirmed for Soundwave 2015. Expect Mastodon to be added as well, based in AJ’s excitement for their new record.
