We were stoked when the Soundwave Lineup dropped earlier this week, announcing heavyweights like Metallica, Linkin Park, Blink 182, Paramore and many more on the bill!
Now attention has turned to speculate on the possible sideshows that might be spawned from this epic lineup, with punters trying to work out if they can justify buying a festival ticket to just see one band, or if they should suss out the solo shows.
Check out the full first announcement for Soundwave here!
According to Faster Louder, festival boss AJ Maddah revealed that the team "usually starts planning sidewaves early October" so we still have a little bit of time to wait.
He also added that Perth and Adelaide won't get any sideshows this time around, and Metallica, A Perfect Circle and Paramore won't be doing sideshows anywhere!
Blink 182 can be confirmed for one sidewave but we're not sure of the location, and it definitely won't be with Linkin Park.
Punters should expect a second lineup announcement to be dropped shortly, with Gallows and The Blackout looking like certainties at this stage.
