Bands Start Pulling Out of SOUNDWAVE 2016

Bands Start Pulling Out of SOUNDWAVE 2016
Riot grrrl act L7 have officially pulled out of Soundwave 2016, casting even more doubt on the festival even going ahead next year… meaning this could be the end for Soundwave altogether.

The announcement was made via the band’s official Facebook page, along with a statement regarding the matter (available below). Eric Melvin of NOFX has also alleged that the festival will be cancelled via Instagram, with promoters of their upcoming Australian tour stating that the issues with the festival are affecting the likelihood of them making it Down Under in 2016.

At this stage it really doesn’t look like Soundwave will be going ahead next year, with many bands publicly complaining about not being paid and being left out-of-the-loop. Event organiser AJ Maddah has stated that the festival will be no more as of 2017, and that he will be retiring from putting on shows and festivals altogether.

ATTENTION AUSTRALIADue to circumstances beyond our control, L7 will not be performing at this year's Soundwave…
