So, here it is, the finale to what has been hands down the biggest festival of Summer 2012/13 – Soundwave!
And, Western Australian punters are going to spend their Labour Day public holiday in style when they rock out to Metallica, Linkin Park, Blink-182, Garbage, A Perfect Circle, Slayer, Bullet For My Valentine and truckloads more at the Claremont Showgrounds.
Music Feeds has put together all the bits of information you need to have a killer day – all on this one handy page.
The timetable and map can be found together at the bottom of the page – both of which are pretty damn essential if you want to work out how to make your way around the venue and not miss your favourite bands either. Allow at least five minutes to get between stages – and later in the night, if you want a good spot for headliners on stages 1A and 1B, my suggestion is stake out your spot mega early to avoid being shut out of the D-Barrier or in some sort of crowd crush. Yes, Metallica fans, even if that means sharing space with nostalgic former tenny-boppers lapping up Blink-182, you’re just gonna have to suck it up.
There’s also the newly announced signing tent timetable for you to have a gander at. And, finally, below all of these, you’ll find the transport information to make sure you get to Soundwave and back without any major dramas. For all other Soundwave Perth information, visit the festival’s ‘About’ page.
Have a sweet day off, and we suggest you bookmark this page or download this content to your phone to avoid any headaches!
