The Legion 2016 Lineup Just Got A LOT Bigger

Written by Emmy Mack on January 6, 2016

Holy shit! Three new acts have just been added to the lineup for Soundwave replacement festival Legion: Canadian electro-industrial veterans Front Line Assembly, Brisbane metal kids Aversions Crown and US metal demons MOTHERFUCKING DEVILDRIVER!!!

The unholy trinity join previously announced acts Devil You Know, Darkest HourBattlecrossCaligula’s HorseDarkc3ll and Rick Dangerous And The Silkie Bantams on the inaugural lineup.

The addition of this heavy metal trifecta will no doubt spur on the heavy music festival’s crowdfunding campaign, which has so far raised almost $122,000 of its ambitious $3,275,000 target.

The festival will only be able to use the crowdfunded cash if it successfully hits its lofty campaign goal, but Devil You Know drummer and Legion mastermind John Sankey reckons they can do it.

“We now have an opportunity to rally together and make history,” he states on Legion’s Pozible campaign page. “Through our commitment to this crowdfunding model, together we can help establish a future for the Australian live music scene and have our actions speak boldly to the world.”

The official festival dates for Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth have all been announced, with Legion organisers mapping out the exact budget breakdown required for each event (below).

If you want to see DevilDriver, Front Line Assembly, Aversions Crown or any of the other killer acts that the festival is promising to serve up, you can make a pledge on Legion’s Pozible campaign here.

Around 20 more acts are still yet to be announced on the lineup for Legion 2016. Check out all the details we know so far, below.
