Triple M predicts theSoundwave 2013 lineup: Blink182, Linkin Park, Offspring

THE SOUNDWAVE 2013 LINEUP HAS BEEN ANNOUNCED

Update: 2nd August
According to the latest announcement from Nui Te Koha: “Soundwave: The Offspring will play. Travis Barker will tour Australia with Blink 182. ”


Taking a break from their busy schedule of flicking through the latest copy of Zoo, updating their footy dreamteams and rockin’ out to the latest monster from Nickelback, the crew at Triple M have decided to make a few Soundwave 2013 lineup announcements.

According to the Triple M gang, Soundwave has “got” Linkin Park for the 2013 lineup and Blink-182 is also a “healthy” chance. The source of this latest Blink 182 rumour? Who else but star reporter and master of rumours himself, Mr Nui Te Koha!

Nuistradamus doesn’t have the best of records with his prognostications and has previously claimed that we’d see Blink 182 and Limp Bizkit at BDO 2010, Blink 182 and Prince for BDO 2012 Black Keys for Splendour this year. But the law of averages dictates that he’ll be right eventually so today he has announced that “There’s nothing locked for Blink-182 but very healthy talks is how it’s been described to me… very healthy and encouraging.” As we’d say to his Triple M buddy Eddie McGuire: lock it in!

Chasing the rumour, Nui says that he has “reached out” to the festival’s promoter AJ Maddah but sadly he “got no reply.” Maddah has confirmed on Twitter that he had scheduled a meeting with Blink and that he is also “hoping to go to a show in the next couple of weeks and beg in person!”

Earlier this week the Triple M crew made another prediction for Soundwave 2013 reporting that The Offspring will be touring Australia in the next six months and are likely to feature on the bill for Soundwave or Big Day Out. This rumour is a little sturdier than Nui’s annual Blink news and comes via a quote from an interview with The Offspring’s singer Dexter Holland .

“I’ve heard that’s a maybe,” Holland revealed to Triple M’s ‘Gleeso’. “In fact, AJ the guy that does [Soundwave], he was at our show in London and I talked to him a little bit. So I know there’s been some serious talks about it. Then I heard Big Day Out from somebody but I don’t know if that’s coming together.”

While Holland says that the band would like to do a headline tour he told Triple M that “it would be great to jump on one of the big festival tours and I would be really happy to play either one of them, so I hope it comes together… Australia is always important for us to get to and a lot of fun for us to do so I hope we get there as soon as possible. I’d say definitely within the next six months.”

The Offspring last hit Australian shores since Soundwave in 2008, although they were booked for the ill-fated and bizarre Megarampage shows in 2009 that attempted to combine skateboarding with a lineup that included Good Charlotte, Pitbull and a few Wu-Tang Clan members. That lineup was almost as baffling as The Offspring’s staggeringly awful new single Cruising California (Bumpin’ In My Trunk), but at least Megarampage never actually happened. Soundwave boss AJ Maddah commented last week that he’s “not sure [about an Offspring tour] tbh. Depends on their world tour itinerary.”

Last year was the return of nu metal, maybe this year the return of cal 90's punk? highly unlikely, but fuk if any of the better bands of the era were on the bill i'd be keen. I'd be keen to see offspring playing nothing but their first three albums... as highly unlikely as that would be

Want to see Blink. No care for Offspring or Linkin Park.

I really hope No Doubt end up being one of the headliners. They would be a whole bucket o' fun.

If I had to bet, I'd say Linkin Park are headlining. The Offspring are also likely I would say.

But Blink-182? Surely the dates are too close together for someone who's afraid of flying.

Which begs the question: How much snark is too much snark?

I'm not sure to be honest. I think you could safely say you can get from Brisbane to Sydney in less than 24 hours, but it just seems like a bit of a risk. Then again, with the right preparation it would probably work.

Are we compiling a list of topics not covered by this article? Here's a few things to add:

An AC/DC tour
Pizza recipes
Gina Rinehart
19th century architecture
Paul Keating
The novels of William S. Burroughs
Lip balm
The debate about whether Australia should adopt a Bill of Rights
Michael Kirby's reputation as the "dissenter"

That's all I have for now I'm afraid. I will have to look into this further.

And then young Tyler, who so desperately wished with all his heart to see Refused, realised that Refused was really inside him all along.

Schoolies seem to constantly make it to the GC in a day and a bit from weird parts of the state......probably powered by a contrasting mix of red bull and weed though, the question is how straight are blink these days......

Fuck the haters that are having a cry about these three bands. Yes, Soundwave next year will only have these three bands. There wont be any other bands for you to see so you best stay at home.

I would l fucking love to see those 3 acts play next year.

Yes, but you're a well-documented festival douche. As long as there's something plugged in and playing as you're beating up homosexuals while showing off your tribal tatts, you're on easy street.

ugh. anyone who can sit there and honestly say they're happy to see blink play but not linkin park have clearly never seen either of those bands play live. blink 182 would have to be one of, if not the worst live band i have ever had the 'opportunity' to see. they told sh*tty jokes for prolonged periods of time, rather than playing the goddamn music i had paid to see/hear. and when they did play said music? they sounded craptacular. people were walking out in droves and they hadn't even finished playing.

linkin park on the other hand put on an amazing live show. if they do play soundwave, expect one of their festival sets that are notorious for their 'old-school music' - which i'm sure the festival douches that morningafterboy mentioned will be jizzing in their pants over.

Yeah, credit where it's due; Linkin Park were really fun in 2010 in Sydney.

I would watch Linkin park play stuff from their first record at a festival for nostalgia's sake, but I wouldn't go just to see them.

Linkin Park are great live. Victimized from their new album is a pretty good throwback to the style of their old music as well.

tyler07

tyler07 said on the 6th Jul, 2012

I, like everybody else my age, was a fan of Hybrid Theory and that era of nu-metal at the time but I really don't think I could stomach a Linkin Park set. They would surely play just as much, if not more, newer material than older material considering they've consistently put out albums since those days.
