You Am I joins rescheduled UNCAGED lineup as Kingswood, Superjesus drop out


Melbourne's UNCAGED festival has been rescheduled to Saturday 12 March as there's a couple of major shifts in the headliners.

Tim Rodgers-fronted legendary bands You Am I and Hard Ons are both joining Melbourne’s UNCAGED festival lineup, after previously only being on the list for the Brissie edition. However, Kingswood and The Superjesus have both dropped off the lineup due to scheduling issues.

The festival has moved from January to March, with the Omicron outbreak forcing festivals around the country to move their dates due to staff shortages, travel restrictions and general chaos everywhere.
