Soundwave 2015 Melbourne Is Moving To A New Venue

Written by Nastassia Baroni on December 5, 2014

There’s been a slight change of plans for punters heading to the Melbourne leg of Soundwave 2015 on Saturday, 21st February and Sunday, 22nd February, with AJ Maddah announcing the festival will no longer be held at Flemington Racecourse but will instead return to its original home of the RAS Melbourne Showgrounds.

“I am monumentally pleased to announce that #SW15 is back to its original and still the best home RAS Melbourne Showgrounds,” wrote Soundwave chief AJ Maddah on Twitter today. The RAS Showgrounds were the original Soundwave venue for Melbourne until the festival changed venues in 2013 and 2014.

Maddah thanked Flemington Racecourse for hosting the Melbourne festival for the last two years and added that while he was pleased about the event returning to its original venue, it did mean that “capacity is now rather limited” and warned punters that the festival has almost sold out its weekend tickets. Maddah also confirmed that all other festival details will remain the same and tickets already purchased for Flemington remain valid for the Showgrounds.

Just last week the Soundwave 2015 lineup grew by another 15 names, with the festival announcing acts like DragonForce, The Devil Wears Prada, Killer Be Killed and Evergreen Terrace will be joining the likes of headliners Faith No More, Slipknot and Marilyn Manson at the summer festival.

Maddah also promised a “slightly bigger” third Soundwave lineup announcement will arrive before Christmas along with festival timetables.

Soundwave 2015 will of course be held across two days, on the same weekend in Adelaide and Melbourne, then the next weekend in Brisbane and Sydney. See dates and updated venues below.
