UPDATE 04/08/14: The full lineup might not be here this week, but this is almost as good! Get ready for Soundwave 2015: The First Wave — five new acts announced for the Soundwave 2015 lineup exclusively through Music Feeds, starting 8pm AEST tonight! All the details, right here!

New comments made my AJ Maddah via Twitter suggest the lineup for Soundwave 2015 could be unveiled as early as next week. Asked by a follower when tickets for next year’s festival would go on sale, the promoter told the fan, “My guess is around Aug 20 give or take a few days.”

Last year’s tickets hit sale roughly two weeks after the lineup announcement. Meanwhile, last month Maddah stated that he was “aiming” for an “early August” lineup announcement and “on-sale.” A 20th August ticket on-sale suggests that the lineup is scheduled for the first week of the month.

Maddah has already confirmed locals Ne Obliviscaris and Confession for the 2015 lineup, with Rise Against strongly rumoured to be one of the event’s four headliners. Recently, a page on the Adelaide City Council’s official website may have given fans a first peek at the theme set for 2015.

Among other details that Maddah has divulged about next year’s festival are its expansion into a two-day event, featuring “80 to 90” bands across seven stages, as opposed to the usual 12. “If 2013 was a 10 and 2014 was a 5 this would be a 7 or 8,” said Maddah of the quality of the lineup.

UPDATE 1:23PM 30/07/14: AJ Maddah has confirmed to Music Feeds that the Soundwave 2015 lineup will not be released next week. Writing via Twitter, he said, “Hi lovely Musicfeeds people. Def not next week.” However, instead of the full lineup — still expected for release some time in August — Maddah has suggested that Music Feeds “exclusively announce a band or 3” so stay tuned!
