Time Out Sydney

The headbangers' ball unveils its most stonkin' line-up... ever?

When AJ Maddah said goodbye to the Big Day Out and announced that his original Soundwave festival would extend to two days in 2015, we expected that the bill might be bigger than usual.

We didn’t expect it to be this big. Topping the incredible line-up is Faith No More, as well as SoundgardenSlipknot, Slash and Marilyn Manson. And the list of metal, punk and hardcore bands goes on: there’s Incubus, Lamb of God, Fall Out Boy, Gerard Way and Judas Priest. The best part? Since the bill is split over two days, it means that there’ll be way fewer timetable clashes, longer sets, shorter queues, and better staging. Plus, the ticket price hasn’t even increased from $185.

Faith No More, Soundgarden, Incubus, Lamb Of God, Ministry, Antemasque, Gerard Way.
