Soundwave 2015 Tickets: What You Need To Know

Ever since the Soundwave 2015 lineup was announced yesterday we’ve been bombarded with questions from fans regarding tickets to the festival. It’s no wonder — next year’s festival is set to be another massive year for Australia’s premiere rock, punk and metal festival.

Not that we don’t love you, but we don’t have the time to be answering thousands of individual queries. So, if you’ll excuse the group treatment, we’ve put all the information we have on Soundwave tickets in one place for everybody to get their own answers!

So here they are, your Soundwave ticket questions answered! This page will be updated with new information as we get it.

What is available in the members pre-sale?

Only weekend tickets will be available in the member’s pre-sale.

I didn’t get my presale email — help!

As recommended by Soundwave Festival:

  • Firstly, check your junk and any old email accounts you might have signed up with.
  • If no luck there, please email [email protected] the morning of your pre-sale and they will give you a link.

How long does the pre-sale last?

Until 6pm, Thursday, August 28 or until sold out.

How many pre-sale tickets can I purchase?

Members purchasing via pre-sale can purchase up to six tickets per show.

Any difference between pre-sale tickets and general sale tickets?

Aside from getting them earlier, and ensuring you secure a better-value weekend pass before they sell out, none.

Can weekend tickets sell out?

Yes! There are a limited amount of weekend tickets available for sale, and may sell out even before they are released to the general public. Our advice? Get yourself a pre-sale ticket, any (legitimate) way you can.

If weekend tickets sell out, how do I see all the bands?

Then you’ll have to buy two single day tickets, which is by far the more expensive option.

When do day tickets go on sale?

Organisers have confirmed that one-day tickets to Soundwave 2015 will hit sale with the release of general public weekend tickets. Both rounds of tickets will be available from 9am local time this Friday, 29th August, with one-day tickets priced at $132.00 + booking fees.

Will there be flight + ticket packages available for Perth fans?

Soundwave are “working on it”.

Can I purchase tickets from overseas?

Yes, but Soundwave cannot send physical tickets. Instead, choose the Barcode E-ticket option and your ticket/s will be delivered via email.

Will there be more bands added to the lineup?

Yes, but not before tickets go on sale. We’ll have to wait for bands to be locked in before the “supplementary announcement” arrives.
