As usual, updates from SWHQ to us, the faithful, do not start to flow until around this time of year. Also par for the course, there has been plenty of inaccurate and/or speculative information floating around, including numerous rumours that Soundwave is over (an understandable conclusion for many to come to). But, please remember that the ONLY reliable source of information is these official updates on the official Soundwave website, and that everything else is merely speculation of those not in the know.
Only SWHQ really is in the know, and it is always their preference to not post information until it is confirmed and accurate. For this reason, there have been no updates yet. However, at this point, I have managed to obtain the following concise update, straight from the horse's mouth: "We're working on it!".
Interpreted for you, the curious folks of soundwave, I believe that this means:
- Soundwave may yet happen in 2011!! Yes really! But further details are the "it" which is being "worked on".
- As always, NO official announcements will be made until information is confirmed. Until that point, we will all just have to have patience. So whatever you hear, deem it to be speculation.
- When more accurate information is available (hopefully soon) it will be posted here. If it's not posted here, it's probably not accurate!
- Remember that one year, Soundwave was not confirmed until 3 weeks before the show! So information is not as late coming as it probably seems.
In the meantime, SWHQ encourages people to get charged up, as we all are, about the new Kulth-Ka-Choolth Festival in Coombs on the weekend of July 16th (see links below for more information). The one certain piece of information we have at this point about Soundwave 2011, if it happens, is that it will definitely NOT be on that same weekend as the Kulth!
Thank you all for your ongoing love and support! Stay tuned!!
Everything is in full swing and we are waiting for you at the beach!
Please take care and drive responsibly on your way up here. There have been reports of a police roadblock, complete with dogs, after the dirt road!
To the beach!
The journey less ordinary is on the horizon and we here at Volunteer Headquarters wish to take a moment to express appreciation to all the skookum peeps who have signed up to volunteer at SOUNDWAVE 2010...soooo

There are still volunteer shifts available. As described on the volunteering page, you can earn $180 back towards the cost of your ticket after 12h total of volunteer work (usually as a couple of shifts throughout the event).
Tickets are now on sale at the ticket outlets. If you buy before July 1st you can avoid paying HST. See the tickets page for more info!
This year's wristbands will be delivered today or tomorrow!
That means that tickets should be available at most ticket outlets this weekend.
We will be ending online early-bird ticket sales this Friday.
If you had planned to buy an early bird ticket online but haven't, you should hurry up before it's too late!
June 27th Edit: Cars arriving on Friday that are full to capacity of people (ie. a full carpool) will get free parking through Sunday night.
June 19th Edit: The plan for off-site parking with shuttles has been abandoned in favour of excavating more on-site parking. $20/car/day charges apply as described below:
We are pleased to announce that Early-Bird tickets are now available for sale on the Soundwave web site - at the early-bird price of $185. Order them using the Order 2010 Tickets Online button on the right hand side of this page!
