Soundwave 2013 timetables revealed
UPDATE: 13/2/13 – Updated set times for all cites have been released
Get your highlighters out.
After much anticipation the timetables for the Brisbane and Sydney legs of the Soundwave festival have dropped tonight – and as previously reported Metallica going head to head with The Offspring is arguably the biggest clash of the festival. Then again with 72 acts playing across nine stages did you really think you’d be able to have a conundrum-free day?
Earlier today Jamey Jasta of Hatebreed and sludge metal band Kingdom of Sorrow inadvertently leaked the stage three set times for the Sydney and Brisbane legs of the 2013 Soundwave festival tour via Instagram. More tellingly, he revealed that an unnamed mystery act would be playing a 40-minute set after Kingdom of Sorrow’s performance on the festival’s third stage. Other acts confirmed on that stage include Six Feet Under, Dragonforce, All Time Low, Motion City Soundtrack, Killswitch Engage and Bring Me the Horizon.
Speculation as to who the mystery act is includes Megadeth (for no other reason than to complete the booking of the Big Four of Thrash Metal) and Maynard James Keenan’s “other” band Pucifier who will be in the country for shows during the Soundwave tour.
Soundwave will take place at Brisbane’s RNA Showgrounds on February 23 and Sydney’s Olympic Stadium on February 24. The Melbourne times are likely to be released on the weekend, with the Perth and Adelaide times due out shortly after.
