“What a great lineup, we are so stoked to be headlining,” Spiderbait’s Kram said in a statement. “A lot of great memories for us playing with amazing bands like Magic Dirt and Screamfeeder.”

Eskimo Joe front person Kav Temperley pointed out that much of the lineup consists of acts that “influenced our band in a major way,” adding that “to be included in this stellar lineup is just such an honour.”

“We’re mega excited to be rockin’ the Spring Loaded stage again this year,” Magic Dirt’s Adalita said in her own statement. “Back with our good mates, back with the awesome fans and ready to rock out! And this time we get to play with one of favourite bands that totally influenced us as kids – RATCAT! We can’t wait!”

Last year, Spring Loaded hit several cities across Australia, with lineups featuring Grinspoon, You Am I and Regurgitator. We’re assured the upcoming Sandstone Point event is the first of many Spring Loaded events to take place this year, with organiser Marc Christowski promising “a non-stop throwback to the good old days of Homebake and the Big Day Out.”
