The Soundwave Festival doesn’t show any signs of slowing down with age on its ninth outing as it visits five Australian cities on its whirlwind tour.

Machine Head, Limp Bizkit, Mastodon, Hole, and The Dillinger Escape Plan have all been announced so expect things to be just as loud as ever for Soundwave.

Music unfolds across three stages and there are plenty of fairground rides for those who want to take things to the extreme. There are also market stalls, eateries and drink vendors.

Soundwave 2012 will tour Australia for the following dates;

Brisbane, 25 February 2012
Sydney, 26 February 2012
Melbourne, 2 March 2012
Adelaide, 3 March 2012
Perth, 5 March 2012
