Organisers confirm rumours that the Soundwave Revolution festival has been cancelled.
The administrators on the Soundwave Revolution ‘Community’ section of their website have posted a brief statement.
“It is with great sadness that we announce the cancellation of the Revolution Festival.
“Many of the festival bands will still be coming to Australia in that time period and team up to bring you some very special shows. These will include multi band/mini festival line-ups in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. We will be announcing these events in the next 7 days.
“Tickets purchased online will be refunded automatically as soon as it can be processed. If you purchased from an outlet, refunds will be available next week from point of purchase.”
Rumours were triggered earlier today by the drummer for US glam metal mockers Steel Panther, who tweeted that his management told him the event was cancelled.
Word is that trouble with Van Halen’s management meant that they would no longer headline.
