Spring Loaded Festival Updates

Off the back of the blockbuster success that was the sold out Bribie Island Spring Loaded event on the weekend and Sydney’s absolute crowd pleaser last month, Empire Touring is elated to announce two new mammoth Spring Loaded shows set to storm Eatons Hill Outdoors (Brisbane) on Saturday 13 November and the iconic Sidney Myer Music Bowl (Melbourne) on Saturday 4 December. There will be an exclusive presale available from 10am AEST Monday 28 June and tickets go on sale to the general public at 10am AEST Wednesday June 30.

With ten shows set to have rocked around the country before the year is out, Spring Loaded has well and truly declared a triumphant return to live music. The colossal lineup dripping in 90s Aussie alt rock nostalgia boasts a haul of the decade’s most celebrated acts including Grinspoon, Regurgitator, You Am I, Jebediah, Custard, Magic Dirt, The Meanies, The Fauves, Screamfeeder and MC Lindsay ‘The Doctor’ McDougall.

And making every effort to squeeze more rock into the already larger-than-life lineups, Tumbleweed have just been added to both the Gosford and Adelaide events.

Due to the evolving Covid19 circumstances and with multiple bands based in Greater Melbourne, continued border closures & SA Health restrictions, the Adelaide show that was set to take place this weekend has been bumped to Saturday 6 November. All tickets purchased for the original date will remain valid for the rescheduled date, without need for exchange.

The man who masterminded this bodacious opportunity for us all to relive our youth and celebrate the return of live music, Empire’s Marc Christowski is thrilled with the two new event additions, saying, “With two Spring Loaded shows under our belts I can definitely say that this show is all killer and no filler, every act gives 110% and everyone who’s attended leaves with a massive smile on their faces, bring it on!”

Covering all bases, the festival will be bustling with craft beer and an enviable collection of the locale’s cherry-picked food trucks. Spring Loaded is a fully licensed 18+ event, strictly no BYO food or alcohol. The shows are outdoor concerts and will go ahead rain, hail or shine. No tables, tents, sun shelters or umbrellas are permitted, punters are urged to bring ponchos/raincoats and gumboots if rain is forecast. Picnic rugs and low camp chairs are permitted, as are sealed bottles of water, and there will be water refill stations. And this killer event will be taken indoors to Adelaide – expect all the festival vibes with no weather issues.

After an unprecedented write off for live music in 2020, don’t miss this opportunity to celebrate the return of the festival and the greatest era of the indie alt rock scene in Australia, and come and relive the soundtrack of your youth, live at Spring Loaded in 2021!

VIP tickets will be available for the Just Ace Place VIP Bar offering a premium viewing area, exclusive VIP entry, private bar and food area.

The Spring Loaded festival dates will be held with a commitment to a COVID Safe environment. Festival organisers will work closely with and comply with all requirements of the public health authorities in respect of these shows. If any shows are required to be postponed, a postponement date will be announced and punters will be eligible for a full refund if they are unable to make the new date.
