Well the time has come and after the death of the Big Day Out, it's been confirmed that Soundwave won't be happening in 2017.
Soundwave Promoter AJ Maddah Says Festival "Definitely" Won't Go Ahead In 2017 - Music Feeds
When I was a teenager Big Day Out hosted so many killer bands, Metallica, Rammstein, Fear Factory, Slayer, Killswitch Engage and more. Then Soundwave picked up the torch after BDO started doing more shitty alt and indie bullshit. Acts like Van Halen, Soilwork, Mudvayne, Hell Yeah and more. Every decent hard rock and metal act in one place.
Now it's dead. I live in a country so fucked up there are now no major festivals to go to.
Time to start 6-stock?
