Everyone is wondering what’s going on with the Soundwave Revolution ‘mini festivals’ and the good news is that there will be an announcement within the next 48 hours. Soundwave boss AJ Maddah has been tweeting details all day and he says the Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide mini festivals have been finalised but Sydney and Perth are still being organised.
