Bands confirmed for Soundwave 2012

CHECK OUT THE FULL OFFICIAL LINEUP NOW

The Soundwave 2012 lineup was supposed to be announced just before Van Halen’s set at Soundwave Revolution in September. Obviously with the cancellation of the Revolution that plan has now been scrapped and it appears that the drip-feed style announcement of the Soundwave 2012 festival lineup has begun.

According to Maddah roughly 15 to 20 out of the 60 bands on Soundwave 2012 tour will be acts originally booked for the Revolution and the full lineup for the festival is likely to be announced during the Counter-Revolution mini-festival tour.

The first major announcement will be made on Friday 7th October and will feature 62 bands. A supplementary announcement of another 10 to 15 bands will be announced in December.
