America really needs to catch on with these massive rock and metal festivals. What we’ve got now doesn’t really cut it. I mean, we’ve had a surge in popularity with Bonnaroo, Zion Rock Fest, Maryland Deathfest (which we’re attending!), and New England Metal and Hardcore Festival, but really, we don’t have anything that can touch the Soundwaves, Downloads, and Rock am Rings out there. OH WELL, we’ll make do!

So Soundwave looks really neat next year. Obviously, the headliners are almost always nu-metal bands or Metallica, but there’s a ton of cool acts on board if the headliners aren’t really your bag (even though I hold the opinion that everyone should enjoy System of a Down in some capacity.) Digging through the lineup, I see Devin Townsend Project, Dillinger Escape Plan, Mastodon, Meshuggah, Gojira, and more. Lucky Australians.

Tickets go on sale Thursday, October 20th. You can check out the entire lineup in text form after the jump!
