Soundwave 2014 third lineup announcement coming this Friday
Just a few weeks out from Soundwave 2014, head honcho AJ Maddah has revealed that the long-awaited third lineup announcement will come this Friday.
“3rd announce next week,” the festival promoter revealed on Twitter, as well as confirming that the equally exciting Sidewave sideshows would begin dropping this week. Timetables are also set to be revealed “late this month.”
With “a few internationals left over” from the second announcement – which included the likes of Mastodon and HIM – it’s looking likely that fans will see the reportedly confirmed King Parrot and The Bennies on the third bill amongst a group of “mostly locals.”
Swedish group Crashdiet are also rumoured to feature on the next announcement, with Maddah saying that “at this point they either be on 3rd announcement or not” and Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison’s new band Scar The Martyr is “a possibility.”
Acts already locked in from the first and second lineup announcements include Green Day, Stone Temple Pilots, Placebo, Korn, Avenged Seven Fold, Rob Zombie, A Day To Remember, Pennywise, Panic At The Disco, Jimmy Eat World and Megadeth.
Soundwave will hit Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth in February/March 2014.
Stay tuned to MTV.com.au for the full announcement coming this Friday.
