After taking a break amid the coronavirus pandemic, Spring Loaded Festival is set to return for another colossal year of alt-rock glory. 

The festival made its debut in Queensland back in 2019, now it’s back and bigger than ever. The festival is an ode to the golden era of 90s Aussie alt-rock, enlisting the help of all the acts that helped define a generation of music fans.
