Soundwave 2013 lineup announcement expected in August


Update: 2nd August

Maddah has now confirmed that the lineup will be released “Next week”.

Soundwave boss AJ Maddah has announced that he “The festival is now fully booked and we’re ready to announce… once BDO have been on sale for at least 2 weeks”.

The Big Day Out goes on sale from Thursday 19th July so that means that we could see the Soundwave lineup as early as the 2nd of August. The lineup for the 2012 festival wasn’t released until October last year.

Maddah has also offered up a few more hints about the lineup, ruling out the possibility of Refused playing the festival – “You will not see Refused in Australia in 2013” – and making the bold claim that the “the next 9 to 10 months are going to be the greatest ever witnessed by Aus metalheads… [with] so many great tours coming up and not just by SWT”.

“The greatest ever”, huh? Gentleman start your Big Four rumours!
