Review: Soundwave Festival 2015 @ Sydney (Day One)
It's Day Two of Soundwave 2015 at Sydney!
Able to see a dozen of great bands on day one. So I expected more or less the same or better on day two.Well, today got Slipknot, holy shit! And relieved that I was able to recover just in time for a more adventurous, unpredictable weather gonzo and the crazy crowd.
Here's all bands I've seen on the final day, in sequence:
1. The Wonder Years
2. Fucked Up
4. Killer Be Killed
And the day really kicked off with this super-band Killer Be Killed. Members from Soulfly, The Dilinger Escape Plan, ex-Mars Volta and fronted by one piece of Mastodon. Their music was not that exceptional but nevertheless, it was still great seeing them altogether on one stage.
5. Tonight Alive
8. Papa Roach
9. Marilyn Manson
11. Of Mice & Men
14. Fall Out Boy
And that's it. Finished. Just like that. Two days but it still felt brief. Need more! So I guess I have to come again next year;)
All in all, everything was great; the bands, the venue and stages, the accommodation provided (a 10-minute walk back to hotel), the crowd (not too crowded, just nice), the weather, the free water station, etc. I miss the atmosphere.
Thank you, Soundwave!
5 best bands of Day Two: Godsmack, Of Mice & Men, Crossfaith, Marilyn Manson & Fall Out Boy.
5 best moments of Day Two: Marilyn Manson's crazy crowd, the brief heavy rain during Godsmack, drum-of during Godsmack, moshing at Crossfaith & seeing Slipknot live!
Worst band of Day Two: -
