UPDATE 17/12/15 5.50pm: Soundwave 2016 has been officially cancelled.
Soundwave’s first 2016 lineup has arrived, and with it comes a tidal wave of reactions across social media, ranging from the super-positive to the super-negative and the super-funny. So without further ado, here are some of the best:
Some Soundwave punters freaked out so hard after the festival’s first lineup dropped that they couldn’t really contain their excitement…

…while others were looking for a bit more and began to flood the interwebs with references to Big Day Out.
Then there were the really negative reactions, with the hashtag #RIPSW doing quite well for itself as some punters deemed Soundwave to be down and out.

Others got a little more sentimental, reminiscing about the good ol’ times when Soundwave lineups were absolutely PACKED with meaty rock goodness.

Then there was this crazy narrative which confused everyone but ultimately had a point. Kind of.
Then there were the brilliantly comedic reactions overflowing with pop culture references and ideas for Soundwave’s next lineup announcements.
Dat Soundwave lineup; not enough Adele. #SW16

One super-excited punter even gave Music Feeds their reaction during our live stream of the lineup announcement, and it really makes you feel sorry for her neighbours.
