Soundwave Festival unveils third lineup

As promised yesterday Soundwave Festival has revealed a third round of artists to join the likes of Slipknot, System Of A Down and Limp Bizkit on the festival’s 2012 lineup.

Recently reformed British 90s rockers Bush head up the announcement along with Swedish metal heads In Flames, who promoter AJ Maddah had previously confirmed via twitter. In Flames were last here for Soundwave 2009 showing off their unique brand of melodic metal and this time come armed with tunes from their tenth studio album Sounds of a Playground Fading.

This new wave of bands rounds out the Soundwave 2012 lineup to nearly 90 bands, which has lead “Maddah to announce the addition of “at least” one extra stage at this year’s event. There’s also a chance the Falling in Reverse could still be added to the lineup, the festival is just waiting of a visa approval for frontman Ronnie Radke. For all the up-to-date info on stages, timetabling and sidewaves head here.
