Just days on from the initial huge lineup announcement, it looks like Soundwave 2012 has suffered its first cancellation as Soundwave producer AJ Maddah revealed on Twitter that Hole have pulled out from next year's festival.
AJ stated "tbh, I am relieved we got the moody old cow off the bill. I only put her on after a campaign of harassment!"

It seems that Hole cancelled because Courtney Love and her band did not wish to share the same billing, or take a lower slot on the billing than Limp Bizkit.
That's the same Limp Bizkit who have sold an estimated 33 million albums worldwide.
A second round of artist announcements is expected next week so stay tuned to MetalTalk.net for more details.
