Outbreak Fest Makes First Line-Up Announcement
Outbreak are not messing around this year. The Leeds hardcore fest has announced a line-up of heavy-hitters for 16 – 17 June at Canal Mills in Leeds.
Turnstile (one of our Hottest Bands of 2018), Cro-Mags, Floorpunch, Angel Du$t, Fury, Jesus Piece, Big Cheese and Servitude are all confirmed. Pretty good going for a fest started by accident by two 14 year old kids at a community hall in Sheffield back in 2011. There’s more to come too, we’re told.
If you’ve been psyched about the hardcore bands we’ve been featuring on the site and in the mag recently, but you’ve not had a chance to get to a proper hardcore show, Outbreak Fest is well worth a trip – the diverse line-up will give you a nice overview of the scene right now, and you’ll be able to experience the bands with no barricade or security; how it’s meant to be.
There’s also going to be record distros, vegan street food and welcoming vibes for all – punk culture done right. It’s going to be a blast. Go buy some tickets here!
Slipknot have posted a tribute to their founding drummer Joey Jordison, who passed away earlier this week.
