Soundwave Festival 2013 secondlineup

Soundwave Festival has announced a huge second lineup, less than a fortnight since confirming the 2013 event would be headlined by Metallica, Linkin Park, Blink 182, A Perfect Circle and Garbage.

The second lineup announcement adds Slayer, Cypress Hill, Bullet For My Valentine,
Bring Me the Horizon, Billy Talent, Fucked Up, Gallows and many more bands to the already huge lineup. The addition of Slayer alongside Metallica and Anthrax brings the festival even closer to presenting The Big Four – could we see another big announcement soon?

Due to the “unprecedented demand” for the festival’s pre-sale which kicked off on Wednesday, Soundwave boss AJ Maddah has said: “I would be amazed if Bris/Syd/Melb do not sell out instantly… Honestly [I think Sydney will sell out in] under an hour.” The impressive lineup is a one off for Soundwave’s ten year anniversary and Maddah says that “Next year will return to normal.”

Want to know even more about Soundwave 2013? We go behind the line-up to present a definitive guide to everything you need (and don’t really need) to know about next year’s Soundwave.

Soundwave 2013 second lineup:

Slayer
Cypress Hill
Bullet For My Valentine
Bring Me the Horizon
Billy Talent
Mindless Self Indulgence
The Amity Affliction
Sick Of It All
The Blackout
Fucked Up
Gallows
This Is Hell
Cerebral Ballzy

Fucked Up should be good.
The Amity Affliction shouldn't.
Slayer can be good if they want.

Solid announcement. Could probably make a fairly decent day out of the festival now. Still doesn't justify the pricetag though.

I would do bad things to Jessie J. Would have been more fun when she was in the moonboot.

I don't. I'm sick of lineups appealing to my taste.

I promise that's my last sarcastic comment for the day.

radiocide

radiocide said on the 17th Aug, 2012



Cross your fingers another promoter sets something up around this, probably the best you'll get any time soon.
Fucked Up/Red Fang at the Gasometer would be beyond amazing.

Slayer can open if they'll agree to do an entire set of Rush covers.

sarcasm_mister

sarcasm_mister said on the 17th Aug, 2012

yay for Fucked Up.

just out of curiosity what's the argument for not having the festival split over 2 days?

berlinchair101

berlinchair101 said on the 17th Aug, 2012

Touring a two day festival would suck I imagine.

It really would benefit from it.

i was thinking it would have been too difficult to maintain year after year. might work this year but they might not get the same level of bands next year and so on.

but still they would've made a shitload of money had they tried it this year.

If it sells out Metallica will do sideshows.

matted said on the 18th Aug, 2012

big 4 sideshows (once megadeth confirmed and tickets sold out)? i did hear something about some pretty big sidewaves... it would be a shame for big 4 to come all this way just to play the festival circuit...

I really hope Cr1zZ is getting the treatment he needs. I imagine he's suicidal over Metallica not going to NZ.

There's quite a few people on here who like them (myself included). They were revealed a bit ago so most people have already talked about liking/not liking them being on the lineup on a different thread.
