(Can you say Heavy, this is like a dream festival for Metal heads.)
Iron Maiden, Slayer Soundwave Line-Up Leaked
by Andrew Tijs - August 5 2010
Twenty four hours before the official release, a poster of Soundwave’s full line-up has been leaked.
Soundwave has very quickly become the marquee festival of the season, not only in quantity but now in quality.
A photo of a (seemingly legit) poster for Soundwave 2011 has leaked on the interwebs and it shows a heavy-hitting heavy music festival indeed.
Check this for a top level headlining group: Iron Maiden, Slayer, Queens Of The Stone Age, Slash, Primus, Social Distortion, Rob Zombie, Avenged Sevenfold, Thirty Seconds To Mars and Stone Sour.
And that is just scratching the surface. Let’s go through some of the highlights of the “smaller” names: legendary post-punks Gang Of Four, SoCal punk icons Pennywise, stirring rockers The Gaslight Anthem and crazed rockers The Bronx, thrashers Trash Talk, sludgemasters the Melvins, and metal lords High On Fire.
And it just keeps coming. Here are the rest: New Found Glory, Sum 41, Anberlin, Third Eye Blind (what?), Devildriver, Sevendust, Less Than Jake, Monster Magnet, Terror, MXPX, Protest The Hero, 36 Crazyfists, Ill Nino, The Ataris, The Starting Line, Bayside, Mad Caddies, The Maine, Mayday Parade, Foxy Shazam…
… Never Shout Never, The Blackout, Alesana, Asking Alexandria, All The Remains, Dommin, The Sword, Kylesa, A Skylit Drive, There For Tomorrow, Breathe Carolina, Taking Dawn, I See Stars, Rise To Remain, Nonpoint, Veara, and Every Avenue.
Sound right? A lot of the artists have been rumoured, and all the early confirmations are on the list. Quake in your boots and await confirmations.
