"Our aim was always to put something together to really show the diversity within the hardcore punk community," explain the Outbreak organisers. "This is a festival for everyone, a place where people can feel welcomed, allowed to express themselves however they want, meet like minded people and above all have fun. This was our goal from the start and 10 years on we are still living by this."

The festival has moved to the Bowlers Exhibition Centre in Manchester, and will be taking place from June 25 – 27, 2021. Tickets go on sale at 9am on September 2 via
