While Soundwave Festival may have taken Australia by storm in its short history as a festival, a new event has been announced with an equally impressive line-up.
No Sleep Til is a brand new national festival that combines punk and metal worlds for a crossover extravaganza. At the top of the pile is thrash-metal lords Megadeth. They've had their hey-day you say? Not so... The band is set to run through the album Rust In Peace in a nod to the record’s 20th anniversary.
The Descendents will also be bringing some old-school flavour to the line-up as the band hits Australia for the first time in thirty years. Fellow Califonians NOFX (pictured) and Me First and The Gimme Gimmes are also along for the ride.
