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.

Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide will all get outdoor mini fests with 15-17 bands and 2 stages. Ticket prices will be around $97 and they will be all-day events. The bands tipped to headline the festivals are The Used, Four Year Strong and Panic at the Disco.
