Mutiny Festival


Bridlington Spa, East Yorkshire


Date: 16th May 2009


£30 Adults


£20 under 16’s

Whilst many mainstream festivals are closing down in the credit crunch the


punk festival scene is booming. Further proof of a strong grass roots


sub-culture is provided by the latest addition to the scene calendar.


Mutiny, named after UK punk rock heroes Goldblade’s recent top album,


is based in Bridlington, East Yorkshire and looks set to be a big


success. Promoted by two newcomers to the scene (Ant Hall and David


Fisher) and fired by the DIY spirit of punk rock, it’s very much a


fan’s event and looks set to be a big hit with hundreds of tickets


being sought even before advertising began. Bands and fans are flying


in from all over the world for this celebration of the roots radical.


The one-day event will be held at the twenty million pound, newly


re-furbished, Bridlington Spa in East Yorkshire. This is a part of the


country that has traditionally been starved of pop culture but with


excellent communications and plenty of accommodation; it is the perfect


location for an event of this scale.


An all day event (2pm till midnight) with a market place of stalls and


a very strong and varied bill that encompasses old school punk, Ska


and new generation UK bands…


Stiff Little Fingers


Neville Staple (ex Specials)


Anti-Nowhere League






Strawberry Blondes


Middle Finger Salute


Tickets are £30, which will be for wristbands and re-entry. Further


proof of the generational reach of new millennium punk rock is that


under 16s are welcome (under adult supervision).


The festival cherishes the memory of Sophie Lancaster the ‘Goth’ girl who


was beaten to death by ‘youths’ in a park in Bacup as she tried to stop


the 5 youths who were attacking her partner, Rob. The event fully supports


The Sophie Lancaster Foundation and S.O.P.H.I.E. campaign














Because every time a kick and punch was aimed at Sophie and Rob it was


aimed at the whole punk/Goth/alternative community and Sophie was part of


our community.


Sophie’s mother, Sylvia will be at the festival to speak to everyone


like she had been doing at recent GoldBlade gigs


The festival is a celebration of the community of punk rock, a scene


that goes far deeper than the music. It celebrates its brilliant


timeless music and the ability to unite people from all over the


world with exciting bands that genuinely touch people with very


little hype.
