The year always starts off right in Australia wit major festival Soundwave.
However, this may have come to an end for good.
The 2016 edition has been cancelled due to poor ticket sales, but considering the debts, it might be possible that the festival is not coming back.
The promotor has announced he's devastated to announce that the 2016 edition will not go on.
He made the following statement in a tweet:
"I am devastated to have to announce the cancellation of Soundwave 16 due to poor ticket sales. I am very sorry. I tried my best. #SW16"
He also tweeted this, which sort of (arguably) implicates that the festival is not coming back either.
"Thank you to all the fans, bands and people who supported the event for the last 12 years. i wish we could have ended it on a better note."
