Manchester Punk Festival 2016  

Manchester Punk Festival 2016 takes place at Sound Control, Zombie Shack, Thirsty Scholar, Zoo & Retro Bar across the weekend of 22nd/23rd April. We've got the latest band announcements for you below, right from the horses mouth:
.
"Today we are excited to announce another 11 bands from next year’s line-up! Over 60 bands will be playing across the weekend.
.
We’ve got an invasion from the South-West in the form of Bangers, The Cut-Ups and Great Cynics. Bangers latest album “Bird” is some fantastic forward thinking and honest lyrics layered over catchy but looming guitars. The Cut-Ups bring their socially aware punk rock to Manchester – watch them and feel inspired. Manchester favourites Great Cynics return yet again with their infectious melodies and singalong songs.
.
Revenge of the Psychotronic Man are returning to deliver stupidly fast punk rock from Manchester. Revenge of.. have been relentlessly gigging all over Europe for the past decade. They are acclaimed by the likes of Steve Lamacq and the Radio 1 Punk Show and renowned for the crowd interaction at their live show, so things are likely to get silly.Birmingham’s finest, Brassick, will be playing a blend of hardcore mixed with old school punk rock with big choruses. Brassick: Birmingham’s finest, playing a blend of hardcore mixed with old school punk rock with big choruses.
.
Jake and The Jellyfish are going to deliver some punky, folky reggae from Leeds. After releasing their impressive ‘Dead Weight’ album this year, which you should all check out, these guys continue to go from strength to strength. Black Volvo will bring some raucous punk n roll from The Netherlands. Black Volvo have played all over the UK and mainland Europe and recently released their ‘Once We Were All Wolves’ on TNSrecords.
.
Matilda’s Scoundrels will bring the boat loving and folk driven punk rock up from Hastings. These guys are incredibly active in one of the best local scenes in the UK, putting on their own gigs and bringing loads of great bands to the area. Their debut EP is excellent and we are sure they will get MPF moving.
 .
As always we have an element of melodic hardcore/skate punk in our announcement and keeping with the previous one, we are going European as well as home grown. The last couple of years has seen Darko go from everyone’s favourite Christmas elves to the undoubted shred kings of the UK. Since their last show at MPF they have toured non stop all over the world including a show stealing performance on the main stage of Punk Rock Holiday in Slovenia. They haven’t grown an inch in that time.
 .
We are also welcoming Laughing In The Face Of who haven’t, as far as we know, had the opportunity to properly show Manchester what they are capable of. With arguably one of the best live drummers around, we couldn’t be happier to have them on board. The European influence comes in the form of Lineout from Italy. They have made a name for themselves in their home land through hard work, good songs and huge gigs. They are ready to get in you!"
.
Bands announced so far: Oi Polloi, Sick On The Bus, Revenge of the Psychotronic Man, Faintest Idea, Brassick, Bangers, The Cut-Ups, Darko, Ducking Punches, Great Cynics, Kill the President, Sombulance, Wonk Unit, Harker, Laughing In The Face Of, Black Volvo, Woahnows, Casual Nausea, Lineout, Jake and the Jellyfish, The Franceens, Matilda's Scoundrals & No Contest. (60+ bands will play in total)
