A Spring In Your Step With KRAM From SPIDERBAIT

Share This:

Often with music festivals containing some form of nostalgia things can become unnecessarily cluttered and almost sentimental, in effect negating the very concept of a musical celebration featuring an assortment of bands who have all played significant roles in the success that is Australian music.

But, when a festival gels as it should then the result is nothing short of triumphant.

“Lose your fucken shit, because you could die tomorrow!”


Think festivals like Homebake and Livid that are to this day spoken about with awe and wonderment and the sheer magic of music is instantly compounded.

And it now appears there’s one more name to add to the list.

Spring Loaded.

After the universal acclaim from punters and performers alike following last year’s travelling spectacle, organisers have this year stuck to the same winning formula of signing up some of the best Australian music talent from the past couple of decades and throwing them together on one stage to unleash the inherent beauty of music in its purest and simplest form.

This year headlined by Spiderbait, Spring Loaded kicks off on June 3 at the Sandstone Point Hotel with a stacked line-up that also includes Frenzal Rhomb, Shihad, Eskimo Joe, Screamfeeder, Magic Dirt, Ratcat and Bodyjar.

With the countdown on for what is already shaping to be another monster day of entertainment, HEAVY sat down with Spiderbait’s Kram to talk about the strength of Spring Loaded and Spiderbait’s honour of having been named headliner.

“I think it will be fantastic,” he enthused. “We did do this show a few years ago, and I didn’t really know what to expect, and it was such a fantastic gig and fantastic festival. We can’t wait to do it again, and we’re really pumped.”

“It’s such a beautiful amphitheater,” he continued. “Amazing vibe, and it reminds me of some of the old festivals that we used to play years ago in Queensland.”

In the full interview, Kram talks about being asked to headline, the importance of having festivals made up of only Australian bands, some memories of playing with other bands on the bill, their live show and what to expect, perfecting your craft and more.
