SOUNDWAVE 2013 HAS ARRIVED
Soundwave 2013 successfully kicked off in Brisbane and Sydney over the weekend.

Soundwave is living up to the hype as the most talent-heavy line-up in Australian music festival history. Featuring the likes of Blink 182, Linkin Park, Paramore and Metalica we say bring on Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth!

With almost 200,000 guests nationally busting through the gates, it’s easy to see that Soundwave has found a home within the hearts of Aussie (and international) hard rock, punk and metal music lovers.

Sonos came on board as our official digital partner and proudly presented Soundwave Tv. Sonos offered fans the chance to win a wireless HIFI system. The lucky winners can now stream their favourite Soundwave artists wirelessly through their home!
The team from Monster Energy hosted the backstage party, treating artists to a good time with their Monster Bar.
Official spirit Jim Beam ensured guests were quenching their thirst in every city. The gorgeous and fun loving Jim Beam Party Crew kept guests entertained throughout the tour.
The team at mixitup was proud to represent Soundwave for the second consecutive year and as we make our way into recovery, we will say goodbye for now and start planning for an even bigger 2013.

SOUNDWAVE WRAPS UP FOR ANOTHER YEAR!
The nation’s biggest metal festival has proudly completed yet another successful year. Whilst many other musical endeavors come and go, Soundwave has grown into its own and the celebration of pure metal goodness lives on.
Almost 200,000 guests nationally rolled through the gates, each on a mission with site maps and timetables in hand. The fans are not like the usual festival goer, they are in it for the pure love of music.
And by no means were the fans let down this year, the music and skills on show throughout the tour were all top-notch and the energy level of the bands were exceptional. With notable performances from festival headliners Iron Maiden, Queens Of The Stone Age, Primus, Slash, 30 Seconds To Mars and epic metallers The Sword.
The team from Monster Energy treated artists backstage to a good time with their Monster Bar. Drinks were flowing and spirits were high as bands were able to sit back, relax and take in the Soundwave atmosphere.
Official spirit Jim Beam ensured guests were enjoying their surrounds. The passionate and fun loving Jim Beam Party Crew ensured guests were watered and entertained in every city.
So Soundwave is over for another year and as the team at mixitup makes our way into the recovery zone, we are both satisfied and sad that this great festival is done for another year.

VENUE FOR SOUNDWAVE PERTH CONFIRMED!
Since Soundwave festival announced back in September last year that they would be moving from the Steel Blue Oval in Bassendean to avoid a clash with the Western Australian Football League preseason training, there has been much speculation, and concern, about the location of the Perth leg of the festival.
Well, we can finally confirm that the festival will be held at the Claremont Showgrounds.
ROCK ON PERTH!
SOUNDWAVE 2011 MOVES TO THE SYDNEY SHOWGROUND
Having already spent substantial time, effort and treasure to make improvements to the venue – adding major shade structures, plumbing to enable the addition of hundreds of free water taps and coming up with foolproof traffic management regime, Soundwave Festival and the venue operators have jointly decided that we would rather unveil the new Eastern Creek when even more additional improvements and renovations have been completed.
We believe that the most important person in our business is not the artist, the venue or the promoter, but the concert‐goer who makes everything possible and we would rather not take the chance that we may not offer the perfect conditions.
As such this year’s event has been moved to the Sydney Showground, located at Sydney Olympic Park. All tickets are valid for the new location. Soundwave gratefully thanks the operators of the Sydney Showground who have gone above and beyond to make this move happen on short notice.

Soundwave Announce Massive 2011 Line-Up!
SOUNDWAVE RETURNS, BIGGER, BETTER & GOING WHERE NO FESTIVAL HAS GONE BEFORE...
There used to be a saying at Soundwave that no one band is bigger than the festival.
That saying will be tested in 2011 as they proudly announce a rare chance to see rock legends IRON MAIDEN as the headline artist for next year’s festival. Maiden are one of the few artists that inspire loyalty and worship by a constantly growing army that spans several generations of not only fans, but other rock musicians ranging from today’s biggest metal bands to pop icons.
What makes Iron Maiden unique amongst their peers is that the band has never lost their creative touch and their ability to deliver album after album of greatness.
Just when you would think there cannot be another hitherto undiscovered original yet amazing guitar riff; Maiden turn up with another album full of new classics to add to metal and rock’s greatest back catalogue.
Only a fool would bet against the band’s upcoming album, ‘The Final Frontier’, being anything less than a masterpiece. Only a fool would bet against Iron Maiden, period.
Maiden will be bringing with them the full stage production that featured in their hugely successful recent tour of North America, where they played to almost 400,000 fans over the 25 shows. And of course that includes Eddie’s latest incarnation..!!
Joining these gargantuan headliners is a cast of rock, punk and metal luminaries, headed by the regal guitar rock of QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, metal gods SLAYER, indie pioneers PRIMUS, the incomparable SLASH and fifty or so other international artists who form the who is who of cutting edge music for the coming decade.
And that is just the 1st announcement...
SOUNDWAVE 2011 TOUR DATES:
SATURDAY 26TH FEBRUARY: BRISBANE, RNA SHOWGROUNDS
SUNDAY 27TH FEBRUARY: SYDNEY, EASTERN CREEK RACEWAY
FRIDAY 4TH MARCH: MELBOURNE, SHOWGROUNDS
