And the sixth artist confirmed for Soundwave 2016 is… Lordi!

The Soundwave Festival lineup is fast coming together, and now after Northlane were revealed earlier this week, today the festival continues their drip feed of the festival lineup with the addition of Finland’s Metal warriors LORDI, in what is their first ever visit to Australian soil.

Festival Dates:
Saturday 23 January, 2016 – Brisbane
