Who gets ten minutes before you dash off to another venue or celebrate that you can see everyone you want or kick off that there’s a clash of your favourite bands. It’s the nature of the beast folks! In the coming weeks there will be spreadsheets, clashfinders and other kind people posting their ways of displaying and seeing the many bands. To see the schedule for this year head over to: https://www.rebellionfestivals.com/line-up and tickets can be found here.
This year’s headliners include a Henry Rollins spoken word set, punk legends The Damned, New Model Army and Steel Pulse for what is one of the best and most eclectic Rebellion Festival line-ups so far. Other highlights include Descendents, Big Country, The Exploited, Neville Staple from The Specials, Die Toten Hosen, The Only Ones, The Dickies and many more.
These join a host of vibrant new talent as Rebellion Festival continues to champion exciting and fresh music including Bob Vylan, Lambrini Girls, I, Doris, Mille Manders & The Shutup, Bar Stool Preachers, Pizza Tramp, Yur Mum and many more.
Since its original inception in 1996 as the then named Holidays In The Sun Festival, Rebellion has always aimed to bring together the best punk and alternative music from across the globe, and is still a family-run, family-orientated event that celebrates punk in all its forms. 2023 is without doubt, one of the strongest line-ups yet.
