Claremont Showground was a sea of black shirts, tattoos and sunburnt faces yesterday as more than 40,000 music lovers flocked to the sold-out rock and heavy metal music festival Soundwave.
It brought an end to a busy summer of music in Perth and an incredible weekend for live music lovers, with total crowds of more than 90,000 attending Soundwave and Sunday's Future Music Festival at Joondalup Arena.
It is believed to be the single biggest weekend of live music in WA history.
There were plenty of older fans in the crowd enjoying yesterday's Labour Day public holiday with favourites Metallica, The Offspring, Blink 182 and Garbage among headline acts.Judging by the numbers wearing shirts displaying vintage Metallica tour dates and albums, the 90s rockers, who closed the show last night, were the tops.
