Glad I'm not the only one who's dissapointed in the line-up. My facebook is full of people shitting themselves over the lineup. Metallica are the only band on there that I'd enjoy seeing. I think that they were always going to find it hard to match last years line-up, it had everything. This seems to go from world famous to bands I don't think would sell out 500 capacity venues. I'll be pissed if second announce is great and tickets are gone though. Will hold off for Coheed and Cambria and Brand New headline tours (hopefully) next year.

So did I, man. I got there for the first bands playing, even saw that one band play a half-Pinkerton set. I went too hard at Gojira and got a headache, Meshuggah sounded weak as hell, Mastodon were all right, saw a bit of Lostprophets and Alter Bridge , then the smallest stage at the back, also leaving sets early. Dillinger were far and away the best band of the day (on the seventh stage!) and maybe the best I'd ever seen. Slipknot was like watching a really shitty sitcom, and System... I don't even need to say it. A quarter of the way through, I was just wishing it would be over...

I couldn't be fucked going to Soundwave 2011, even though there was a sweet lineup. Like Queens of the Stone Age, Primus (which I went to the sideshow for anyway, I wasn't missing them), The Sword, The Bronx and several others.

I missed Isis in 2010, never forgiving myself.

Also, 2012 was the best yet, in my opinion. Letlive, Thursday, Kvelertak, Dillinger (all four of which put on some of the most passionate shows I've ever seen) along with Meshuggah, Gojira, Times of Grace, Bad Religion, Devin, and a slew of others I caught.

"Ha, thinking you'll see 15 bands at a festival?"

Depends on how many headliners you see (as they take up more time). Last year, I did see 15 full sets & 3 half sets (so let's say the equivalent of 16 full sets). See my list for proof: http://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?memberid=268913&listid=96955

After such a good lineup last year, this is quite disappointing. I personally think Soundwave SHOULD be mostly metal. There's a heap of other festivals for other music lovers.

Ghost, APC, tomahawk & Kyuss lives should be alright tho.

Blink, Metallica & Linkin Park are some very... very lame headliners.

The problem with that theory is BDO will only include bigger pop-punk (& alt-rock for that matter) bands like Blink & maybe Offspring.

One of the great things about Soundwave is that it gives an opportunity for smaller pop-punk & alt-rock bands to even tour here. It probably wouldn't be viable for bands like Conditions & Deaf Havana to tour here otherwise.

If you go the way you two are speaking, the 2 festival line-ups will genuinely be recycled from 2-3 years earlier.

Captain North
August 9th 2012

6743 Comments


I'm fine with smaller alt rock and pop punk bands playing. Just I'd like a proper mixture. These days it's increasingly the lighter side of heavy and only as alternative as the radio is willing to play.

I thought the first headliner was an Aussie band? CBf wikiing cos I'm at uni but yeah. I dunno, I dislike this mentality of topping themselves with the size of the headliners each year.

DaveyBoy
Staff Reviewer

Usually I stick away from the headliners anyway (Faith No More is the only one I have ever seen at SW). I really couldn't give a toss what many people are there for, which band gets the most money, etc... As long as I have 12-17 bands I want to see, then I'm fine with it.

Young Guns are another great example. They were terrific on Counter Revolution (which was basically a mini Soundwave). Then they tried to headline tour here & sold a paltry amount of tickets. So if not for a festival taking them in, then they won't be back again unless they make it big. BDO wouldn't even know who they are, so if SW goes all metal, then we can all do the math.

Really disappointed in this lineup. Soundwave started off so good years ago and it just seems to be headed towards the same direction as Big Day Out. The whole idea is that BDO no longer has good bands and Soundwave was the alternative for punk/metal. All this lineup says is the promoter wants to get one up on Big Day Out (which they already had last year anyway). I mean come on linkin park/blink/paramore as main headliners? Maybe I'm getting old and bitter. Last year was the least good out of all that I'd been to but still saw some great bands. This year will be my first year not going if it doesnt massively improve.

I dunno, maybe just let the People who are excited be happy? Also you only have yourself to blame for believing rumours...

...so I shouldn't be sad there's no festival I want Togo to? And no one should ever say anything negative?

I didn't believe them, just hoped they were true. Typically they're fairly well founded since a good portion of the rumored bands ARE on the list (even blink who have been rumored every year for god knows how long haha). I just hope the rest do tour soon

Yeah that's fair enough man. I reckon Refused will definitely be on the second lineup... Who were you hoping for?

Deftones, High on Fire, Wonder Years (who are on so Whoo), ETID (who are at BDO without a sideshow which pisses me off), The Chariot, Dir En Grey, United Nations, Propaghandi, Lagwagon, Glassjaw, The Dear Hunter, 10 Years. And when I say rumours I mean hinted at by AJ

Refused wont be on the second lineup. They're doing their own headline tour some time this year.

Deftones, Glassjaw, The Dear Hunter and Propaghandi would be epic. I'm hoping Animals as Leaders sneak on, as well.

North, you should definitely travel down here for ATP. It's going to be amazing.

"Refused wont be on the second lineup. They're doing their own headline tour some time this year."

AJ also said that Metallica wouldn't play, he loves to lead people in different directions.

Holy shit I forgot about Deftones, that would be incredible.

I'd say fake just for At The Drive Ins placing. They're not the biggest of the bands but they have so much buzz around them that I'd argue it'd be higher.

But aside from Megadeath who I highly doubt...and tbh Green Day would be the bigger band anyway...the rest are highly likely

I hope Motion City Soundtrack plays a side show, the rest of the lineup doesn't interest me, but I can see why others would go.

Fake... Green Day would be above Megadeth AND thats the font for their previous album, not the font used for the upcoming trilogy. Yeah I'm a bit of a dork.

Second announcement holds even less interest for me than first. I mean, I'd check out a few bands there if I was going, but nothing that makes me want to buy a ticket.

I know, how do these festivals get away with not having 30 good bands... That way, the cool people can only see 12 of them & then whinge that they miss out on the other 18.

But this way, they can whinge that it's overall still shit. So either way, the whingers win.

I think they call this a whinge-whinge situation!

There'd better be a decent sideshow in Perth, preferably involving Cerebral Ballzy, Sick of it All, The Lawrence Arms or Garbage.

Hell, I'm okay with most a festival being shit, but at least give me a days worth of good.

Blink-182
Kyuss Lives

JTFU, I reckon you have a great chance of a Lawrence Arms/Lucero/Polar Bear Club/Sick Of It All sideshow. Almost certain you'll get at least 3 of them.

Seeing The Dear Hunter will be awesome, other than them and Billy Talent there's not all that much.
