It’s time to see what was speculation and what was fact: the Soundwave Festival 2014 first line-up has been revealed and while it might not be as big or over-the-top as Soundwave 2013 (a 10th anniversary kind of deal) there are still some great bands on the line-up.
As some people accurately predicted: Avenged Sevenfold and Green Day are playing the festival as headliners. 50 bands were revealed with a second announcement expected to reveal another 20 bands taking the total to 70 or so.
As first rumored the Japan Stage is no longer a happening thing after a few Japanese bands pulled out, but there are still a few Japanese bands that made the list.
