AJ Maddah has done it again. What a monsterous lineup he has announced for Soundwave 2013!

Having already been drip fed a couple of acts in the last couple weeks including reunited pop-punk icons Blink 182, The Offspring, Stone Sour and Cancer Bats, the ever illustrious Soundwave organiser has come out with an announcement not many of us were thinking could not be true.

Appearing alongside the acts mentioned previously, metal superstars Metallica (who are rumoured to be playing their 1991 self-titled album in full), Linkin Park, Anthrax, Garbage, A Perfect Circle, Paramore, Flogging Molly, Sum 41and many more will be performing in Australia next year.

Surely this lineup can cement the fact that Soundwave is now as one of Australia’s biggest festival, given that the festival has played host to the likes of Iron Maiden, Queens of the Stone Age, Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson and Faith No More in recent years.

Advertisement Tickets are priced at $189 including fees and public transport and go on sale Thursday, August 23 with a presale commencing seven days prior.
