As expected, Soundwave 2015 is bringing the goods with a most excellent lineup of artists to fill out the new two-day program.
Yes, you heard right, Soundwave 2015 will be a two-day event for the first time in history. And ticket prices aren’t even going up. Organisers are promising better staging, better production, longer sets and minimised clashes.
Now if they could just arrange a butler to get my mid-strength beers, it’d be my festival dream come true.
Tickets are on sale this Friday 22 August, for those who are chasing two-day tickets and are Soundwave Members. For the general public tickets are on sale Friday 29 August. You can sign up to become a member now if you’re not already.
