Soundwave Line-up 2009

For those who like to rock… Trent Reznor and his band of merry men have been announced for next year’s Soundwave Festival, which will tour the country in February and early March. Nine Inch Nails have undergone something of a renaissance in recent times, Reznor breathing new life into the band having been liberated from the constraints of his major record label record deal.

Not a festival for the faint at heart, Soundwave serves up some of the biggest names in metal, punk and rock. The 2009 line-up is undoubtedly its biggest on record, and alongside headliners Nine Inch Nails you’ll be able to catch reformed grunge icons Alice In Chains, the always cheeky Bloodhound Gang, System Of A Down side-project Scars On Broadway and many more.

Noone seems to be interested in Jaguar Love...more fool the lot of you!

The Fool

The Fool said on the 24th Sep, 2008

I know. That's probably the only band I'd really be keen for (apart from NIN of course)

Napoleon Solo

Napoleon Solo said on the 24th Sep, 2008



Quiet man, leaves more space for the cool kids.

Super Browny

Super Browny said on the 24th Sep, 2008

I dare say I'll run into you in that crowd Napoleon. Looks like Im gonna go to this, but most of my mates will be busy at devildriver, lamb of god and all those bands

Napoleon Solo

Napoleon Solo said on the 24th Sep, 2008

Yeah I will have to be ditching the GF a number of times. Rival Schools, Minus the Bear and Horse the BAND take priority.

Super Browny

Super Browny said on the 24th Sep, 2008

Yeah Im keen to see Horse The Band also

dream_brother

dream_brother said on the 24th Sep, 2008

pffft least you guys have people to go with. none of my friends will even go to this. unless Soundwave have accidently left Justice off the line-up announcement

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 24th Sep, 2008

Weren't they just here?

Ohhh wait, my bad; that was Band of Horses.

Fuck this line-up is good. I really don't know what to do.

Super Browny

Super Browny said on the 24th Sep, 2008

Yeah MAB, although the names are pretty similar, the music is pretty far from each other (I do happen to be a fan of both though!).

mooney88

mooney88 said on the 24th Sep, 2008

i would love that haha

dream_brother

dream_brother said on the 24th Sep, 2008



haha, actually, with music being the main element in many peoples lives nowadays, i have pretty much lost all my friends coz i choose not to go out and take drugs and sit in clubs till 4am anymore.

but meh, guess they're not real friends if there's no compromise.

ANYWAYS, sob story over.

Knaggz

Knaggz said on the 24th Sep, 2008

bayside were great when they last came here

alesana wtf?

TinTin

TinTin said on the 24th Sep, 2008

I don't know a lot of the bands on the line-up so will have to scope them out.
So much music around.. too hard for me to keep up!

dream_brother

dream_brother said on the 24th Sep, 2008



only if we can skip around and hold hands.

dream_brother

dream_brother said on the 24th Sep, 2008

Super Browny

Super Browny said on the 24th Sep, 2008

Oh my god.
Minus the mother!@$!%ing Bear.
Straylight Run.
The Subways.
Nine Inch Nails.
I hate festivals with all the annoying scene kids, but i'll be sure to check out the oh so inevitable sideshows.

iNegro

iNegro said on the 24th Sep, 2008

Nine Inch Nails, Minus the bear the Subways, but if they play sideshows on the same night, NIN and The Subways will have to die.

NiteShok

NiteShok said on the 24th Sep, 2008

minus the bear ftw. keen to see HORSE too, regret missing them earlier this year.

tuonela

tuonela said on the 24th Sep, 2008

Amazing!

fonziethelegend

fonziethelegend said on the 25th Sep, 2008

The line up is fantastic.
Face to Face will be by far the best band of the day in my opinion.
Less than Jake are always great live so very keen for that too.
Don't see what the big deal with Minus the bear is though. Saw their hifi bar show and was bored shitless.
*awaits insults*

Why don't they ever do sideshows in Perth :'-(

I'd love to see Nine Inch Nails but at the prospect of spending over 100 bucks on a ticket to see them and a few other acts that would mildly interest me, I'm kinda bummed out :P

Bloody Big Day Out - they have lost Fatboy Slim and Nine Inch Nails now - mind you I'm glad they lost F.S because he would have headlined the boiler which would have meant I'd have a big debate as to whom to see at the end of the night.

Anyway, yes

Sideshows sideshows sideshows!!!!

Angerawr

Angerawr said on the 26th Sep, 2008

I think I'm in love.
Now all I have to do is find someone to go with :(

Dexter Ramone

Go by yourself and have a better day I reckon.

Napoleon Solo

Napoleon Solo said on the 27th Sep, 2008



or come to Sydney and you can hang out with me and you just might be the lucky winner of an unwanted pregnancy, Kaching BABY BONUS!

nikib

nikib said on the 27th Sep, 2008

Anyone know how it goes with AIC sideshows?

tuonela

tuonela said on the 28th Sep, 2008




i'm very keen to find out as well

Napoleon Solo

Napoleon Solo said on the 28th Sep, 2008

Wait till the event sells out and then maybe you will get sideshows. How do you expect them to sell out Soundwave if they just announce sideshows before the event has even gone on sale.

Symphonies

Symphonies said on the 28th Sep, 2008



this dude is right. there are absolutely no plans for sideshows so far, except goldfinger + less than jake + two more internationals all playing sideys together because of the cancelled goldfinger tour.

if most shows sell out very very quickly AJ will consider them but for now you cannot say.. personally i'm desperate for a say anything show in melbourne. any other good bands will be a huge bonus.

Angerawr

Angerawr said on the 28th Sep, 2008

Hmm surprise sex? Doesn't that sound fun.
I suppose I could go by myself... Probably better than going to all the sideshows by myself anyhow.
I need friends who like good music.

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 28th Sep, 2008

I listen to fantastic music.
Let's make it happen.

Nearly all their songs are significant in some way.

One of the best lyricists of the last 10 years for sure.

I do agree in some regards though, they have some very clever lyrics.

Spin you around yeah roll you near yeah
Turn you upside down to hold my beer


Ohhhh... I got th e presale email this morn... what to do?
I went into the Golden Plains ballot yesterday and that's the w/e after Soundwave.
