    Frank Turner has announced a “Campfire Punkrock” event next year. It’s a four night all-inclusive event. After the initial backlash at calling something like this “punk,” Frank issued the following statement to NME:

    Like Peter Buck, Melissa Auf der Maur, Todd Rungren, Richard Thompson and many others before me, I’m doing a Music Masters camp next summer in upstate New York, in amongst the rest of my regular touring schedule. It’s an all-inclusive package, four nights full bed and board in a resort, so it might not be for everyone, but it’s just one small event among everything else I’ll be doing next year – releasing a new record, with the usual run of tours, festivals and benefit shows that comes with that.

    I work hard to make sure that what I do is accessible to everyone. If I don’t see people at the camp, there will be plenty of other shows where we can hang out.

    I sure don’t miss the days of arguing over what’s punk or not.

    If I smile with my teeth, bet you'd believe me

    Arguing about if something is punk is not very punk.

    Sounds a cool idea. He always thinks outside the box.

    The tweets the NME posted are mainly (as often) from misinformed idiots.

    Heard about this on the That's not Metal pod, but it seems they didn't realise what this actually is. Regardless, pricing is still steep.
