Australia’s Soundwave Festival has announced dates for the 2015 show(s) as well as some changes. They’ll now be in each location for two days instead of just one, and the shows will happen in February and March 2015.
Check out the full statement (with dates) below.
Bands that have played the festival in the past include Green Day, Rocket From The Crypt, Alkaline Trio, AFI, The Story So Far, Less Than Jake, Pennywise, Blink 182, The Offspring, Flogging Molly, The Lawrence Arms, and a shitload of others.
“Soundwave Festival 2015 will be held over 2 days in each city – Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney & Brisbane. Half the bands play day one. The other half play day two. They criss-cross Saturday/Sunday in each city.
Adelaide & Melbourne will be the 1st weekend of the festival. The dates for these two cities are Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 of February.
Sydney and Brisbane will be the 2nd weekend of the festival; held over Saturday 28 February and Sunday 1 March.
The ticket price for the 2 days will be the same as last year. $185 + booking fees. These will be limited in number. There will also be a number of day tickets available at $120 + booking fees.
We are hoping that offering day tickets will make the festival experience available to those who may not be able to afford weekend tickets. Putting the line-up across 2 days enables us to minimise clashes; give bands longer sets, better staging, production & infrastructure. We are also hoping that this will give fans better value for money and a less stressful day
The entire lineup will be announced at once and weekend tickets will then go on sale. The lineup will then be split into individual days when day tickets go on sale.
In recent years we have lost great bands over too many bands wanting to play after dark. This new set-up also gives us twice the dark!”
