Awesome lineup. Plus it gives me a lot of new bands to check out too.
I've never been but I may check it out a bit this year, hard to come up with a reason not to go.
Is this basically the Canadian version of THE FEST?
On a much smaller scale
Was super stoked for the Daggermouth Reunion...Then I read this on Facebook
I got Class of '86 confused with Matt Arsenault's band Class of '92.
Seems smaller than previous years in terms of "heavyweights," but a sweet line-up nonetheless with some interesting/cool acts I wasn't expecting (Sims, Go Betty Go, the Slackers, Daggermouth).
Me and my friends are making the drive from Toronto for this. Has anyone that's been before have any general tips? Usually takes me a couple years to figure out the "right" way to do a festival, hoping you guys can give me a leg up
Wondering about things like: how far apart are the venues? Is it easy to hop between clubs to see different bands? How likely are the venues to reach capacity for the headliners/should we plan to line up early? how many bands is realistic to see in a night? good punk/alternative bars that people go to after the shows, good food options nearby, is public drinking given a pass?
Thanks in advance!
Full schedule is up: Schedule – Montreal's Punk Festival – May 19 to 21, 2017 – Pouzza Fest
Anyone else bought tickets for this?
Might be a more active thread if it was punknews.org lol
Don't think I'll be buying tickets, the majority of the bands I want to see (PUP, Flatliners, Lagwagon) are all playing for free outside.
Fair enough. Catching:
Bad Cop / Bad Cop
Red City Radio
The Dirty Nil
was enough to justify the purchase for me. I've also never been to Montreal somehow so I'll be doing some sight-seeing during the days. Would appreciate any recommendations from local folks!
I'd be happy to meet up with you or give you some pointers!
