Punk and Rock fans rejoice. Uncaged is the newest rock festival on the Australian festival circuit and packs a punch of musical diversity catering to fans of hard rock, alternative, pop-punk, prog, metal and everything in between. 

The first lineup offers features heavyweights, Wolfmother, who headline Uncaged after spending the majority of their career touring and selling out theatres, stadiums and festivals the world over.
