SOUNDWAVE FESTIVAL swaps Perth venue with Good Life Festival

| 12 February 2014 | Reply

Following on from weeks of conjecture after repeated locking of horns between Soundwave organisers and Claremont City Council and Showgrounds management, Australia’s biggest travelling festival today confirmed they were moving this year’s venue to Arena Joondalup, following in the footsteps of Big Day Out earlier this month.

VenuesWest Chairman Graham Partridge OAM said he was delighted to welcome Soundwave to Arena Joondalup, saying “with Big Day Out and Future Music already at Arena Joondalup the venue is proving itself to be one of the top festival locations in Australia. The addition of Soundwave means more than 100,000 people are expected to attend Arena Joondalup for festivals in 2014.

“This is great news for both young and old music fans in Perth and particularly for the northern Perth suburbs local economy.”

Frontier Touring, who manage Good Life Festival, also issued a press release today confirming the move, saying that they have “agreed to move our Monday 3 March event in WA from our original site of Joondalup Arena to Claremont Showgrounds, with the support of the venue and the local Council. We felt strongly about assisting Soundwave with the logistical issues they were faced with, as our finishing time is much earlier than Soundwave. This allows Soundwave to fully utilise Joondalup Arena and offer the experience they envision for their festival patrons.

“We’re very excited with the move, as Claremont Showgrounds is far more accessible for our patrons. The change in the venue has allowed us to add an additional stage and announce two new artists: Uberjack’d and rising local star Axen.

“The change in venue will not affect anything that Good Life has on offer – you’ll still find the biggest line-up ever witnessed at a underage music festival, including four time Grammy winners Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, the world’s #1 DJ, Hardwell, UK chart-toppers Rudimental as well as local heroes Knife Party to name a few. Good Life has the highest safety implementations to ensure our patrons are in a safe environment, as well as free carnival rides, free sports activity, a crazy foam pit and giant waterslide.”

To recap – SOUNDWAVE FESTIVAL 2014 now at Arena Joondalup, GOOD LIFE FESTIVAL 2014 now at Claremont Showgrounds, Monday 3 March 2014.
