Here’s How Much Money Soundwave 2015 Acts Are Owed

Written by Music Feeds on December 17, 2015

With Soundwave 2016 officially cancelled and Soundwave 2017 “definitely” not going ahead, large sums are still owed to over 50 acts who took part in the 2015 edition of Soundwave in February.

Documents obtained from the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) from a meeting of Soundwave creditors on 7th October detail the money creditors believe Soundwave acts are owed.

The figures, which can be viewed in full below, were submitted by representatives of Soundwave 2015 acts and booking agents and run between $5,720.60 owed to Melbourne band Ne Obliviscaris and $2,132,075 owed to rock heavyweights Soundgarden.

Other notably high figures included in the list are over $1.6 million reportedly owed to Slipknot and over $1.26 million to The Smashing Pumpkins. There’s also over $1.18 million owed to live entertainment company Live Nation Worldwide, but most individual amounts are much lower than these.

Administrators believed the amounts to be correct, as of that meeting. They were still waiting on formal proof from all the creditors at the time, and not all of Soundwave’s 2015 acts appear on the list.

Also, the amounts listed below only represent the debts owed to Soundwave bands and to Live Nation, and not the debts it owes to companies involved, such as venues, venue fencing and security.

UPDATE 18/12/15: British progressive metal outfit Monuments have now launched an “SOS” crowdfunding campaign, to recoup money owed to them for their Soundwave 2015 appearance.
