Rebellion Punk Festival is the annual event that brings hundreds of po-go-ing punks to town enjoy the delights of Blackpool.
Thursday 2 to Sunday 5 August 2018
With over 200 punk and alternative bands, it’s held over four days and six stages at the Winter Gardens. If you’re into punk, you can celebrate punk art, cinema, merchandise and acoustic music.
The line-up is booked over the course of the entire year. Close to the date to the festival bands are scheduled, then a few weeks before, the stages / times are announced.
Rebellion Punk Festival
The show is all ages. Children under 12 are free with an adult holding a weekend ticket (maximum 3 children). They must be accompanied their parent/guardian at all times. If your child is under 12 but looks older, you may be asked to provide proof of age for free entry.
Rebellion is an indoor festival – lots of venues, cafes, bars under one roof – no need to worry about umbrellas or the great British weather affecting the festival!!
Blackpool has long held an association with punks. I remember as a child in the early 1970’s watching them in fascination, with their multicoloured Mohican hair and safety pins in their eyebrows, in the days when punk was a new thing and taking the music scene by storm.
Follower of punk or not, it’s fascinating to see the creativity of the outfits and the masterpieces of hairstyles that must take hours to perfect. It’s always a vibrant weekend and yet another face of this ever-changing and amazing place called Blackpool.
