New Soundwave Lineup Announcement Coming Next Week

UPDATE 17/12/15 5.50pm: Soundwave 2016 has been officially cancelled.

UPDATE: That supplementary 2016 lineup announcement is here.

With Soundwave‘s first full lineup announcement still fresh in our memories, the festival is now planning to drop a handful of new acts next week, followed by even more later in the month.

Posting to Twitter, Soundwave promoter AJ Maddah says Soundwave is “going to do a supplementary announcement next week with 4 or 5 bands” followed by another announcement of around 8 acts later in November.

As for what kinds of bands will be on the next official announcements, Maddah says there will be some more metal…

…some pop punk…

…and probably at least one of the these three bands:

Though, as one eagle eye Soundwave fan pointed out,it’s probably not Coheed and Cambria as they have clashing tour dates.

That said, there’s also still no word as to whether or not The Wiggles will be making an appearance, although we’d love it if they did.

Music Feeds announced Soundwave’s first 2016 lineup last week, confirming the likes of  Disturbed, The Prodigy, Deftones, NOFX and Public Enemy for the January festival. The announcement drew all kinds of reactions online, ranging from the positive to the negative and the downright funny.

On the Soundwave sidewaves front, Maddah has ruled out any Soundwave acts doing their own headline shows in Adelaide, telling multiple punters the city won’t see any sidewaves this year.

Things aren’t looking too good for the near future, either.

While Soundwave has been planning a “killer 4 band metal sidewave” for Perth, that has yet to be confirmed and it doesn’t look like the city will be getting much other sidewave action either.

Soundwave 2016 will kick off in Brisbane on 23rd January, before making its way to Sydney and Melbourne. For all the latest festival rumours and info, stay tuned to Music Feed’s Soundwave Lineup Rumours And Info page.
