Final Acts Added To Soundwave 2015 Lineup

After much anticipation, the third and final Soundwave 2015 lineup has been announced with festival organisers confirming acts like Smashing Pumpkins, Falling In Reverse and Steel Panther will complete the bill for next year’s festival, headlined by Faith No More, Slipknot and Soundgarden.

Rounding out the 2015 lineup will be Swedish punks Millencolin, Melbourne metal act King Parrot, plus Exodus, The Vandals, Rival Sons and Raglans. Soundwave have also confirmed these acts are the “3rd and absolutely final batch of bands” to be added to the lineup.

Festival boss AJ Maddah previously said the third lineup is “slightly bigger” in terms of band stature than the second, which included the likes of Dragonforce, Animals As Leaders, Fucked Up, and the “Justice League Of Rock” supergroup Killer Be Killed. This promise is confirmed with the inclusion of iconic alt rockers Smashing Pumpkins, last in Australia for Splendour In The Grass 2012, who just released their ninth studio album Monuments To An Elegy to high acclaim.

Perhaps the Pumpkins and Soundwave headliner Marilyn Manson will even recreate their recent onstage reunion in London, where they buried old hatchets and together performed the Pumpkins’ classic Ava Adore as well as Manson’s recent single Third Day Of A Seven Day Binge.

The addition of these last few names brings the total SW15 lineup to over 70 acts. Also expected to drop soon are the festival timetables which Maddah has said are due sometime before Christmas.

The festival will be held across two days, on the same weekend in Adelaide and Melbourne, then the next weekend in Brisbane and Sydney. Soundwave has not yet specified on which days the new additions in the second and third lineup will play.

Yesterday Maddah confirmed heavy metal giants Judas Priest will play a full 90-minute set at next year’s festival, the same amount of time believed to be allotted to headliners Faith No More, Slipknot and Soundgarden.

He has previously said the set times for the two-day festival will run as “90 to 100 mins for headliners. 70 mins for top bands. 60 mins for middle bands. 40 mins for small/new bands.” All will be revealed when the official festival timetables are released.
