Australia's touring Soundwave Festival has announced the lineup for its 2015 edition, taking place in February and March in Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane.

Scroll down to see the full lineup so far and stay tuned for more bands to be announced.
Soundwave will take place February 21-22 in Bonython Park in Adelaide and, simultaneously, at the Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne. The festival will then move on to Olympic Park in Sydney and Brisbane's Brisbane Showgrounds on February 28-March 1.
Due to the overlapping nature of the festival, Soundwave released their lineup announcement in two sections on the flyer below. The first represents the lineup for Day One in Adelaide and Sydney and Day Two in Melbourne and Brisbane. Day One in Melbourne and Brisbane as well as Day Two in Adelaide and Sydney is represented by the second lineup grouping.
Soundwave Members Pre-Sale for weekend passes will go on sale Friday August 22 at 9am local time. They'll then open up to the general public on Friday Augst 29 at 9am local time. To be eligible for the pre-sale, sign up for the festival's mailing list at soundwavefestival.com.
Perhaps this killer lineup of hard rock heavyweights from the last 25 years will take some of the negative attention off promoter AJ Maddah, who recently canceled Big Day Out.
