Soundwave - 2015

2015

Soundwave is looming large on the horizon yet again. This year, the festival’s stopping in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide, and stretching across two days to accommodate heavy hitting heroes like Slipknot, Faith No More, Soundgarden and the Smashing Pumpkins!

 

triple J Unearthed and Soundwave are offering the amazing opportunity for one artist to join the massive Soundwave bill in each state the festival’s being held in. All you’ve gotta do to be in the running is to 1) be a total mosh lord and 2) have your best tracks uploaded to http://www.triplejunearthed.com by Feb 8th. It's fine if your tracks are still pending – we’ll listen to all songs uploaded before deciding.
