Soundwave 2013 Lineup Leaks & Rumours Have Begun
Australia’s pre-eminent festival for your dose of music that’s fast, loud and heavy alike, is starting up the old rumour mill for next year’s run.
While we eagerly await the official lineup announcement for sister event Harvest, which was introduced just after Soundwave Revolution collapsed in spectacular fashion, the rumour mill has instead focused on the main event.
The number one source for Soundwave 2013 gossip? Well… that’d be Soundwave boss AJ Maddah’s twitter account, of course.
The keen-eyed among viewers of Maddah’s social network soapbox would have already picked up plenty of juicy info regarding the Festival’s seventh run. Including FasterLouder, who were the first to spot supposed dates in Maddah’s tweeted response to a fan question:
@JeddahYDG We start Feb 23 in Brisbane, 24 in Sydney and so on.
