Man Overboard set to headline all day, indoor event on 2nd May in Manchester
Northern UK-based DIY label Pinky Swear Records (known for their work with Neck Deep, Your Demise, ROAM, Astroid Boys, Nai Harvest, Brutality Will Prevail and more) have announced their first ever festival, set to take place on Saturday 2nd May at Manchester’s Sound Control.
US pop punk outfit Man Overboard will headline the day, accompanied with a set of the UK’s finest up and coming bands in the genre, including Moose Blood, ROAM, Boston Manor, Trash Boat and more across two stages running side by side with no time clashes.
Label co-founder Lee Burgess had this to say about the event, “I want it to be a good mix of everything I’d want if I was to attend an indoor all day festival myself. That’s all we’ve ever done when it’s come down to our releases anyway; so we’ve hit it with the same ethics. We’ve picked bands we like and bands we want to put in front of people. We’ve kept the cost down to just £12 per ticket, with no booking fee nonsense, for a total of 16 bands. No clashes so bands don’t have to compete and punters get to see everyone they want to; plus no barriers cause they’re just annoying at punk shows. We’re inviting some labels and distros down to sell records, and we’re gonna have freshly cooked meat and vegan food options available at prices that are ridiculous. We just want it to have a fun vibe all round.”
The next announcement of the final six bands playing will be made in March. Tickets are currently available at the early bird price of £12 until March 13th, when it will rise to £15.
