MUTINY FEST IS GO!!

 

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

 

UK SUBS

 

Goldblade

 

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.
