After teasing audiences for months and boasting one of the biggest lineups in Aussie music festival history, there seems to be even more good news for fans of hardcore, metal, punk, and heavy rock.
Following on from Sidewaves announcements for a swathe of acts playing the enormous 2013 bill in the last week, including The Offspring, Slayer, Tomahawk, Cypress Hill, and Bullet For My Valentine playing with Cancer Bats and Miss May I; organisers have another treat for loyalists.
Soundwave have JUST announced that a strictly limited number of tickets will be released for the already sold out national touring festival in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth. Tickets go on sale this Friday 21 December, 10am local time… just in time for Christmas!
Originally sold out across the country, with tickets for Melbourne and Brisbane putting up disappearing in record time by mid-September, the new tickets are sure to please punters looking to get a slice of the action, and considering the mammoth lineup – that’s some action.
Glancing at the Soundwave 2013 lineup, the allure is obvious. Punters racing to catch three of metal’s ‘Big Four’, with the second round announcement seeing Slayer joining headliners Metallica, and Anthrax; or wanting to see Blink 182 – complete with fear-of-flying drummer Travis Barker – in their first Ausrtalian show in over a decade.
Then there are the more populist acts rounding out the bill, including Linkin Park, pop-punk veterans The Offspring, along with the likes of Garbage and Paramore. And let’s not forget the heavy and hard variety, such as Bullet For My Valentine, Tomahawk, Stone Sour, Kyuss Lives – the list goes on and on.
Be sure to get in quick as these tickets won’t last!
