Gigging in the rigging - Punk By The Sea 2012 sails into Southsea with The Damned, The Rezillos, GBH and many more on board!
Punk's not dead, it's official. With more and more interest being shown in all matters '70s (for example, the Top of the Pops re-runs will soon start showing snarling but talented oiks, rather than the bloody Wurzels and Abba every week), the race for your hard-earned wage becomes ever more intense. For the past few years, the Rebellion Festival in Blackpool has grown into a successful event, but it's a slog to get there from anywhere south of Birmingham, right southerners?
Calling all punks living in the bottom-half of the British Isles - your prayers are finally answered because Portsmouth will be hosting one almighty gob-fest in June. Cunningly entitled Punk by the Sea 2012, this new four-dayer will take place from Thursday 14th to Sunday 17th June and comes jam-packed with just about every significant punk act from the past and a whole welter of spitting newbies into the bargain.
For £100 for the weekend, you get three days of Main Stage action and four of 2nd Stage attitude. Highlights of Thursday's line-up includes GBH, while Friday sees the festival kick off with the two stages in operation, featuring The Rezillos, Angelic Upstarts, Menace and Night of Treason.
Saturday is a huge day with The Damned headlining and supported by UK Subs, Peter and the Test Tube Babies, Goldblade, The Lurkers and more, while Sunday isn't a soft option either with Slaughter and the Dogs, Eddie and the Hot Rods, 999 and Anti-Nowhere League all kicking off. Each day lasts from 6pm until 2am with more names due to be announced in due course. All shows will take place on the Pier at Southsea!
