Blackpool’s punk festival has been running in various forms since 1996. Rebellion combines the old school punk and new wave with the new generation of gobby youth.
The line up for the fest is built throughout the year but even though it doesn’t take place until August, California’s Bad Religion have been announced as headliners for Thursday night and Tunbridge Wells’ Slaves for the Friday.
Already confirmed to join them on the bill are Angelic Upstarts, The Vapors, UK Subs, Canada’s legendary DOA, Poison Idea (they came from Portland, Oregon before it was cool), and the Neville Staple Band.
Further down the bill are the likes of MDC, Anti Nowhere League, Subhumans, Peter & The Test Tube Babies, Richie Ramone, Eddie & The Hot Rods, Paranoid Visions, The Gakk, and Kiss My Acid.
The all ages festival runs from August 3 to 6 in the famous Winter Gardens. The multiple stages are all indoors and children under 12 go free.
