Following the inaugural success of the festival last year, Spring Loaded is returning in 2020 with a second event in Sydney added to the Bribie Island show.

Spring Loaded 2020 will take over the Lawn at Sydney’s Randwick Racecourse on May 9, with a strict capacity of 5000 for a bill that features the biggest alternative rock names of the 1990s – Grinspoon, You Am I, Magic Dirt and Screamfeeder as the main attractions plus perennial punks Frenzal Rhomb, the ever-heavy riffing Tumbleweed, alt-quirk popsters Custard and funky-electro punks Caligula. The Bribie Island show on June 20 will also host Grinspoon, You Am I, Magic Dirt and Screamfeeder with help from Shihad, the Fauves, Regurgitator and all-time punk heroes The Meanies.

Pre-sales are from Feb. 20 with general release Feb. 24
