NO SLEEP TIL, is a national touring festival that will deliver a mix of the best international and local acts from the legendary to the up and comers.

Leading the charge for this historic event is seminal thrash-metal act MEGADETH, who will be performing their now-classic release RUST IN PEACE in its entirety! Those lucky enough to witness Mustaine and co in action when last here in 2009 will attest that Megadeth are in their career best form, making this a once in a lifetime experience you don?'t want to miss!

As musically impressive as they are entertaining, punk rock stalwarts NOFX are one of the few within their genre that have been able to remain creatively relevant throughout their career. Armed with a back catalogue that boasts as many hits as a backyard-boxing match, NOFX are, as always, guaranteed to deliver each and every night.

Fiercely loyal to their hometown of Boston, MA, everyone?'s favourite workiing-class heroes DROPKICK MURPHYS, are now something of a household name in Australia wit h their socially-aware punk rock anthems accompanying the last two years?' worth of AFL coverage, and the countless sold-out shows they?'ve played down under in the past!

Fresh off the US and UK festival circuit, home grown metalcore heroes, PARKWAY DRIVE are heading up the strong local contingent of artists involved in No Sleep Til. With their recent album Deep Blue crash tackling the national ARIA charts at number 2, and a huge run of sold-out shows around the country, the Byron Bay collective has cemented their position as one of Australia?'s dominant musical exports.

It?'s taken more than thirty years, but trailblazing pop-punk quartet DESCENDENTS (MELBOURNE, SYDNEY, BRISBANE only) are finally bringing their hugely influential sounds to Australian shores. Original members Milo Aukerman and Bill Stevenson will be teaming up with long-time band mates Stephen Egerton and Karl Alvarez. It?'s been a painfully long wait to get these guys here...you?'ll be kicking yourself if you miss them. Make sure you catch the self-confessed "nerdsome foursome" at the Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane shows.

After their 2008 sophomore effort Homesick took the world by storm, A DAY TO REMEMBER?'S (ADELAIDE, MELBOURNE, SYDNEY, BRISBANE only) blend of down-tuned metalcore and sing-along pop punk has become one of the hottest commodities in live music today. With their yet to be titled third record hitting shelves this October, the Floridian five-piece are shaping up to be one of the No Sleep Til Festival?'s highlights!

For more than two decades US metal troupe GWAR have been shocking audiences all over the world, so it's about time Australia and New Zealand was able to witness the bloody carnage first hand. Throughout their illustrious - and often controversial - career, Gwar have been nominated for a Grammy Award on two separate occasions, while their theatrical stage show has been able to remain relevant to audiences young and old by re-creating a slew of contentious political and social issues.

Since releasing their debut full-length Goddamnit in 1998, ALKALINE TRIO have been at the forefront of the modern day punk movement, with the group's hard-rocking tunes providing the perfect musical backdrop for iconic front man Matt Skiba's often harrowing lyrics. Breaking through to the mainstream with 2001's From Here To Infirmary, Skiba, bassist/co-vocalist Dan Andriano and powerhouse drummer Derek Grant have gone from strength to strength, with each of their subsequent studio efforts winning over fans and critics alike. A band not to be missed!

Sweden?'s darkest sons KATATONIA will join metalcore favourites ATREYU (ADELAIDE, MELBOURNE, SYDNEY, BRISBANE only), Aussie punks FRENZAL RHOMB and punk-rock?'s karaoke kings ME FIRST AND THE GIMME GIMME?'S (AUSTRALIAN shows only)

In addition to this already monumental package, we are pleased to announce the inclusion of the classic-metal loving 3 INCHES OF BLOOD, deathcore sensations SUICIDE SILENCE, Pennsylvanian quintet AUGUST BURNS RED and rapidly-rising US troupe WE CAME AS ROMANS also on board.

Adding to the aforementioned list of local talent to the Australian shows, is progressive post- hardcore sextet HOUSE VS HURRICANE, live-wire Perth crew BREAK EVEN, Sydney?'s most promising pop-punks HEROES FOR HIRE and of course, the pit-inciting CONFESSION.

And... adding to this excellent line up local talent, all flying the New Zealand flag with pride are the hardcore heroes ANTAGONIST AD fresh from their European tour and ready to deliver their brutal no-holds-barred hardcore to NZs masses. Wellington based melodic punk rockers THE OUTSIDERS.

Auckland based hardcore hard-outs SHITRIPPER led by an intense and layered duel vocal attack AND, NZ?'s most exciting new act LEECHES, formed from the ashes of Bleeders and Goodnight Nurse and featuring members of Antagonist A.D and Brick Vs Face.

So there you have it! We promised and we have delivered.

I agree completely. Why mix the really good with the throw aways? They're not even a "I';ll go see them if they're playing, but I wouldn't go out of my way" type of bands, they're just rubbish...


Still, Megadeth and Katatonia :D

Katatonia are pretty boring live, but i dont know how they will go down in an outdoor festival + scorching sun.

on another note. i spoke to my contacts at joondalup council (and basso for soundwave) to try get some free tix...
joondalup - havent even heard of the festival, nor received any application

basseandean RE soundwave -
quote from the manager - "At this stage it isn?t being held in Bassendean Oval.  The promoter was advised that due to soundwave being held one week later than usual, it will clash with the pre-season football program and therefore the oval would not be up to scratch should it be hired for festival.  Currently the promoter is in discussion with other venues (eg. Claremont), however it?s not looking good.  At this stage the promoter hasn?t formally apply to hire the oval, nor has the Town formally said no to the hire, so hopefully discussions with Claremont work out, otherwise it will be interesting to see if our Council will approve the use"

got your tickets yet cunts? Im all excited. Got Metallica tix, Soundwave and now this.... JOY!!! metal everywhere!

Seriously, in the last 3 or so years (up until March next year), having seen Megadeth 3 times, Slayer 3 times, Maiden 2 times, Slash, Metallica and GWAR, plus others of course. A true dream come true. All I need now is Max and Igor to go back to Sepultura and them to do a reunion tour... that would be the icing on the metal cake.

I havent yet :P

after reading over my message, it probably wasnt worded very well. I mean come March next year I would have seen all those bands. And its probably closer to a 4 year time span (counting back to Slayer at Rob Pav), but whatever

That was a much better day than I expected.

1. FREE public transport door to door non stop (Rockingham to Joondalup)
2. A stage inside (with working aircon) out of the sun
3. The dud bands allowed time to queue for tucker & drinks

For $120 or whatever it was I got to see 3 Internationals I'd never seen (Katatonia, 3 Inches Of Blood & GWAR (Amazing!!)
as well a Megadeth & Dropkick Murphy's.

I came away happy

Fucking brilliant!  Watching Gwar was surreal, I can't believe they crammed SO MUCH into a 40 minute set, and they played mostly old stuff!  They have their stage show down to a fine art after all these years, they can set up and clean down all that stuff in no time.  Spewing Cyborg Destructo lost his mic for most of his song though.

3 Inches of Blood were awesome too, Dropkicks and Katatonia - I missed NOFX, anyone have any thoughts?

Joondalup Arena has a pretty great layout, both stages sounded pretty good and getting around was a breeze - even getting into the gig after the doors opened was easy as.

The second best thing about GWAR was the thought of Parkway Drive dancing around in Oderus' semen.

MAGGOTS!!!

NOFX were pretty good, copped 2 water bottle shots to the head about 30 seconds into the first song. Also played the opening riff to Megadeths 'Symphony of Destruction'.

Again, I cant stress enough, Suicide Silence were awful

Megadeth were awesome, good show. Gwar were hilarious. Came in after 3:30pm so missed 3 Inches of Blood and Katatonia but saw a few other bands, not impressed, Suicide was fucking shit, Alkaline was boring, most of the bands were either pussy pop punk or emo. But was well worth it to see Dave and co, got a sweet spot near the front as well, crowds were pretty relaxed and spread out so was a good day out overall. Will be interesting to see who headlines next year.

I cant wait!!! ever since high school I have wanted to be spermed on by Oderus.... 2 weeks til my life is complete!

Spermed on, pussed on, bled on, biled on.... front and centre on the rail. Best place to be for a GWAR show. That was fucking incredible, I only wish it went twice as long.

Megadeth ripped too. That was the best I have seen them play out of the 3 times I have. So much for the "Rust In Peace in its entirety" thing though. Symphony, Peace Sells, Head Crusher etc etc. Still, Im not complaining!  

By the way, that had an awesome atmosphere considering the cross over of genres (therefore crowds) and all that. A great set up, getting a drink was a breeze, moving from place to place was no problem, the sound was good on both stages, it wasnt nearly as hot as expected, and I found a nice corner on the grass to go smoke joints while the shit bands were on.

It'd be possible to clean up, but by the looks of things the main problem is blurriness from movement, unsuitable shutter speed, exposure, etc.

Was a not bad fest in the end, Megadeth were great - just a pity about Dave's voice bailing out from like halfway through onwards. Was impressed they just soldiered on and didn't make any attempts to cut the set short, if anything put in extra than I expected. Gwar were also great, so classic to see the whole stage show live. Thank god Katatonia played earlyish, got the lullabies out of the way so I didn't have to keep yawning. Thankfully 3 Inches of Blood stepped up the pace and brought us back to metal territory, with a bit of corniness and decent tempo. Everyone is right about Suicide Silence being woeful, I had to get out of there as my ears felt like they were almost bleeding from the screaming.

Katatonia were great, even though i was to fucked to stand up and enjoy it, same with 3 inches of blood. Frenzal rhomb were funny but punk music generally bores me. Dropkicks mixed in enough folk though to be entertaining, love bands with shitloads of instruments. First time seeing megadave, was good. GWAR were the band of the festival though, fucken awesome funniest band ive seen since ever. I had a gut instinct suicide silence and parkway were going to suck so saved time by NOT watching them, apparently i was right, you guys should trust your instincts more often.

yeah that was a bad sample pic. not worried about the blur, just wanted to get the colours and clarity touched up. the other pics aren't as blurry. that was taken with a 10 + year old digital camera that has had more sweat, beer, blood and pus sprayed on it than anything. more than what i can say for the new video camera that only lasted the first two songs.

You know what they say about trying to polish something that comes outta ya bum..

I know it's subtle (hard to tell viewing on the forum) but that's what ya gotta do when part of a shot is blurred and part isn't. Over sharpen and it looks worse. :P
