It's time to officially start booking travel plans for Australia as Avenged Sevenfold, Alice in Chains, Green Day, Rob Zombie, Stone Temple Pilots and Megadeth will head up the 2014 Soundwave Festival.

Other hard rock and metal acts taking part in Soundwave 2014 include Five Finger Death Punch, AFI, Korn, Alter Bridge, Trivium, Down, DevilDriver, Newsted, Biffy Clyro, Rocket From the Crypt, Asking Alexandria, Clutch, Baroness, August Burns Red, Testament, Living Colour, Letlive., Motionless in White, GWAR, the Black Dahlia Murder, Mushroomhead, Volbeat, Finch, Amon Amarth, Ill Nino, Skindred, Whitechapel, 10 Years, Walking Papers, Heaven's Basement and many more.

If you can make it to Australia, this is about as much of a can't-miss concert as there is. Tickets for the event go on sale Sept. 9. Check the Soundwave Festival website for details.
