Although tentative lists of bands leaked before the August 23rd deadline, a new updated list for the music festival has emerged on Web sites:
The official list of the line up was released, disbanding anxious fans waiting eagerly for the news. Soundwave has a facebook site that lists the latest news and lineups.
The formal list of music bands for the Soundwave festival 2014 edition was announced by AJ Maddah via Twitter. Mr. Maddah was labelled the Australian music industry's most powerful person by the Australasian Music Industry Directory (AMID's) Power 50 list by theMusic.com.au.
He was quoted by fasterlouder.com as saying, "To be perfectly honest I am shocked and a little bit uncomfortable." "I'm still learning on the job and taking lessons from masters..."
Maddah continued to say, "It is never a good time to be a festival promoter in Australia," he said. "The dollar is wobbly, competition for artists is fierce and the conditions imposed by local and state governments are by far the most oppressive of any in the civilised world."
Some of the kick-starters for Australia's greatest music festival include Alice In Chains, Green Day, Stone Temple Pilots, Rob Zombie, and Megadeth along with industrial legends Nine, Inch Nails.
