New Aussie Rock Festival UNCAGED Announces Lineup Shuffle & New Dates

Australia’s new heavy festival Uncaged just got even bigger with the addition of Kiwi rock royals Shihad to the lineup in Sydney and Brisbane.

To boot, fellow veterans You Am I, Tex Perkins (and the Fat Rubber band) and The Hard Ons will now be joining the fest at all three East Coast dates.

Speaking of said dates, they’ve now been shifted a few months due to COVID, with the Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne events now taking place across March and April (all existing tickets remain valid for the new dates).

The event has dubbed itself “Australia’s newest rock & metal festival” and will feature both established & upcoming artists from across the hard rock, metal, punk, prog and classic rock spectrum, including WolfmotherMagic DirtThe Getaway PlanTumbleweedBodyjarOcean SleeperBanks ArcadeLagerstein, Alt., and more.

Sadly however, Kingswood, The Superjesus and The Dead Love have had to bow out of the festival due to scheduling conflicts.
