Photo Gallery: Soundwave Festival - Bonython Park, Adelaide (01.03.14)

The Soundwave juggernaut descended upon Adelaide over the weekend. With seven stages and over eighty acts, there was so much music to take in. Our photographer John Goodridge was there and delivers this taste of what what was on offer.

Festival Review: Soundwave - Bonython Park, Adelaide (01.03.14)

By the time Soundwave put up stops in Adelaide for another year, I'll admit that I was struggling. Falling on the 1st of March, the largest touring festival in the country aptly kicks off 'March Madness' for the Festival State and by this stage, myself and a lot of other Adelaideans have had shows thrown at us from every which way possible through the first two months of the year. It's sunny, there's a cool breeze and god damn it, I wanted some good live tunes because fuck it, I'm a sucker for it, so off I went down to Bonython Park for the second time in just over a month.

Festival Review: Soundwave - RNA Showgrounds, Brisbane (22.02.14)

How quickly another Soundwave comes around. It doesn't seem like a month has passed since Metallica, The Offspring and Blink-182 were topping the bill in 2013, but here we are again with a new crop of bands, another fantastic line-up, and a new set of timetable clashes to ponder. First world problems aside, this year's timetable looks healthy and enticing across the board, and with the standard cancellations and what festival promoter AJ Maddah referred to as 'pissing contests' between bands in the past and a weather report mostly free of rain, it's game on at Fortitude Valley's RNA Showgrounds.

Soundwave Festival - Claremont Showgrounds (07.03.11)

Everyone has that moment, where they do something outside of their norm. For some people this is actually turning up to uni lectures, or taking a few minutes to talk to the weird lady with the cats next door (I won’t throw them at you, I promise). Mostly this is a good thing, but sometimes it is just terrible (like watching Britney Spears music videos online).
