The bands first performance at Easterfest was almost washed out when a freak storm hit Queens Park on Easter Saturday night in 2011.
Most of the crowd was evacuated when the storm hit just before their show began, and front man Jon Foreman promised to return to the festival.
“We had a huge crowd turn out to see the boys from San Diego, and many didn’t get to see them because of the storm,” said Festival Director Dave Schenk.
“To their credit, they’ve kept their promise and hopefully we’ll see a packed house when they perform on mainstage this Easter.”
Switchfoot have released their eighth studio album and their first film “Fading West” since their last visit to Toowoomba.
“These guys are in serious demand, so it’s a big win for Easterfest and for Toowoomba to have Switchfoot come to the Garden City,” said councillor Geoff McDonald.
Seattle rock band Emery will perform their first show in Toowoomba after their 2011 show was washed out completely.
Also headlining, is American rock band RED who will perform their first ever Australian show in Queens Park.
The three piece band is scheduled to release their fifth album next month, and are set to wow the crowds during their Aussie debut.
Triple J artist Tigertown, Peter Furler and ‘The Voice’s’ Fatai, will be among the local acts to be on show during the festival.
But once again, organisers have tried to cater for all tastes, with the hugely popular Easter Jazz set to return in its own exclusive venue.
The Watoto Children’s Choir return with their infectious, joyful music, and a whole host of speakers will feature over the weekend, including Toowoomba Anglican Bishop Cam Venables.
