Green Day And Avenged Sevenfold Top Soundwave 2014 Lineup Announce

It’s that very magical time of year once again – Soundwave 2014 festival line up announcement time, that is, with AJ Maddah and company today dropping a huge list of bands set to grace the stages of SW14 come Summer next year, headlined by heavyweights Green Day and Avenged Sevenfold!

This announcement is just the start of what’s to come, too, seeing 50 bands of the 70 (and possibly more) now confirmed to be on the line up, including two out of three headliners. Green Day will not be doing any Sidewaves, and they’re scheduled for a mammoth 2.5 hour set at every show.

Other big names acts on the line up include Stone Temple Pilots featuring Chester Bennington of Linkin Park out front, Korn, Alice In Chains, Megadeth and stacks more!

We had three acts already confirmed before the official drop – Newsted and The Porkers dropped their Soundwave appearance announcement a little early, as did The Bennies who are set to appear on the Melbourne leg of the tour only.

Finch, Your Demise and Bowling For Soup also threw caution to the wind and strongly hinted they’d be on the bill.

We were told that the 2014 event wouldn’t be topping 2013's 10th anniversary celebrations but we reckon today’s announce is a pretty damn sweet collection of acts, with a downsize leading to less clashes and more chance to catch everyone you could possibly want to see. As promised, metal is back in a big way, though that Japan stage is now no longer happening – plenty of Japanese goodness on the lineup though!

Following the same pattern as last year, Soundwave 2014 will be held over the last weekends of February and the first weekend of March, keeping all of the same venues as 2013. Check out the full first lineup announce and dates below, start planning your Soundwave 2014.
