Soundwave 2016: What We Know So Far

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

Wellity, wellity, wellity, it’s been a fun couple of weeks of fresh Soundwave 2016 news, with the slow drip of lineup acts continuing unabated, with bands such as Hatebreed and Moose Blood announced as part of next year’s rock’n’roll soiree and the date of the full first lineup announce being leaked.

As massive Soundwave fans, we here at Music Feeds continue to bring you any and all news regarding one of Australia’s biggest music festivals and with shit ramping up lately we thought we’d bring you this tidy little wrap up of everything we know so far.

Lineup Announcement Schedule

After some back and forth between AJ Maddah and media, we know now for a fact the first full 2016 lineup is now due to be announced on Thursday, 15th October.

Dates and Venues

Whilst we’ve got the dates locked in for all three one-day Soundwave fests, we’re still yet to uncover the venues for Brissie and Melbs (although there’s a “good” chance Melbourne Soundwave will return to the Melbourne Showgrounds). Our thoughts go out to non-eastern Australians, during this trying time.
