Soundwave 2011 has moved to a new venue, The Sydney Showground.
Eastern Creek Raceway was blessed by no noise restrictions or curfews, making it a great place to have loud rock music blasting. But due renovations there , Soundwave festival and the venue operators have jointly decided it would be better to unveil the new Eastern Creek when additional improvements have been completed.
This year’s Sydney event has been moved to the Sydney Showground, located at Olympic Park. All tickets will be valid for the new location.
From the press release:
Having already spent substantial time, effort and treasure to make improvements to the venue – adding major shade structures, plumbing to enable the addition of hundreds of free water taps and coming up with foolproof traffic management regime, Soundwave Festival and the venue operators have jointly decided that we would rather unveil the new Eastern Creek when even more additional improvements and renovations have been completed.
We believe that the most important person in our business is not the artist, the venue or the promoter, but the concert-goer who makes everything possible and we would rather not take the chance that we may not offer the perfect conditions. As such this year’s event has been moved to the Sydney Showground, located at Sydney Olympic Park. All tickets are valid for the new location. Soundwave gratefully thanks the operators of the Sydney Showground who have gone above and beyond to make this move happen on short notice.
All other cities venue’s will remain the same.
