Want to play Soundwave Australia?

rammsteinSoundwave is one of Australia's festivals that sells out every year. In a festival climate that is difficult to predict, with some festivals folding, being bought out, changing, being cancelled, yet others going strong - Soundwave sells out every time. The lineups always get leaked, fans are basically frothing to get amongst the rock, hardcore, metal and grime.  Soundwave 2014 includes the likes of Green Day, Megadeth, Placebo, the Stone Temple Pilots, Alice in Chains, Korn, AFI and more, if you'd like to be amongst rock royalty, you should probably get involved in this competition, put on by Triple J Unearthed. Winning bands will apart from sharing the stage with rock and roll gods and performing to thousands, receive a $500 performance fee. A different band from each region will be selected for each festival. To be in the running you just need to have your tracks uploaded (either pending or live) on the site before Wednesday 5th February 2014, and have rock, punk, or metal selected as one of your genres. If you have tracks on the site already, you are automatically eligible. Sign up as an artist now » Official Soundwave website »
