Soundwave adds four new bandsto 2011 lineup

The Soundwave lineup announcement machine went into over drive last night confirming the nineteenth, twentieth, twenty-first and twenty-second acts for the 2011 festival.

The first confirmation was electropop/crunkcore/screamo group Breathe Carolina, quickly followed by the additions of alternative metal group Nonpoint from Fort Lauderdale and Michigan post-hardcore crew I See Stars.

Though those confirmations have been overshadowed by the confirmation that Guns N’ Roses legend Slash will return to play a headlining set at Soundwave in 2011.

The full lineup will be revealed at midnight Thursday 5th August – with rumours widely circulating that Iron Maiden and Hellyeah will be among the acts added to the lineup for next year’s Soundwave festival.

On a sadder note for Soundwave punters the festival’s promoters have confirmed that rumours of Blink 182 making the journey to Australia next February for the festival are false.

any band described as 'crunkcore' is instantly terrible.

I think the announcement of Slash for Soundwave could make me lose my bet to Spicy McHaggis.

If he goes to the V8 Supercars now, it won't be because he wants to see Slash. It will be because he really likes Holdens and Fords.

I think Slash was in Melbourne just last week. Unless my eyes were decieving me, I saw him in a bar on Russell St. A bunch of girls were taking photos with him.

Either that, or it was a dead set look alike.

I'm 99% sure it was him.

Don't worry, their stupid dripfeed tactic should end soon.

Is it Thursday that the full lineup is meant to be announced?

People/idiots all over the Internet are claiming Gaslight Anthem as confirmed...

And Maiden better get announced or there is going to be ALOT of angry hessians.

I don't get the midnight announcement.

Surely a 9am announcement live on radio is of far better promotional value.
