MANCHESTER PUNK FESTIVAL 2018: Third Band Announcement

MANCHESTER PUNK FESTIVAL 2018: Third Band Announcement – Iron Chic

mpf-2018-4MPF2018 announce the third set of bands playing Manchester Punk Festival next year as tickets go on sale. Iron Chic, Lightyear and loads more bands have been added to the line-up.

It’s time to bring you the 3rd announcement from MPF2018 and it’s quite a corker.

Manchester Punk Festival welcome IRON CHIC all the way from Long Island, New York to the line-up! This band, featuring members of Latterman, Small Arms Dealer and Get Bent, have made a huge impact on the punk scene since the release of ‘Not Like This’ in 2010.   They have two more albums under their belt including the recent ‘You Can’t Stay Here’ on SideOneDummy.

Also, having just celebrated their 20th anniversary as a band, MPF are also ecstatic to bring the recently re-united UK ska-punk legends LIGHTYEAR to the line-up. Get your pantomime horses at the ready.

Flying all the way from Osaka, Japan and making their UK debut, WATERWEED will be bringing the noise like not many others can. Up there with the best in melodic hardcore and industrial shred, this is one of the most exciting bookings from MPF so far this year. Also flying the flag of the shredders, they’ve got local (ish) noise makers DEAD NECK and Punkle Fester hosts CAPTAIN TRIPS.

Making their return to MPF after storming the first festival, Brum punk rockers BRASSICK are back. Also making their return are your favourite band’s favourite band, APOLOGIES, I HAVE NONE. Dark, energetic and brutally honest punk rock with a back catalogue to scream your lungs out to.

They also thought it was time to bring back Cornish hardcore punkers BOBBY FUNK. It also wouldn’t be Manchester Punk Festival without WADEYE. Considered the most dangerous band in Manchester, arguably the country, we can’t wait for them to ruin everyone’s day.

Over the hills in Leeds CRUMBS have been quietly making a name for themselves over the last couple of years. Their infectious and sprightly danceable jams are delivered in a way that you can’t help yourself from enjoying. Also heading over from Leeds, they’ve got the small and furry geezers in EAT DEFEAT. They’ll be bringing their pop punk sounds and year long sponsored Facebook posts right in to your face.

Everyone misses The Arteries right? MPF have got the next best thing in HOT MASS who feature members of Swansea’s greatest ever. They’ve got an incredible debut LP and have toured with some of the biggest already so don’t miss them.

As with last year, MPF want to bring some Scottish punks down for a party. This year is no different as GOODBYE BLUE MONDAY are joining us all the way from sunny Glasgow. It’s just what Manchester needs, more knife crime. Flying all the way over from Ohio we are delighted to bring you THE RAGING NATHANS. An exciting band with crisp good looks.

We feel the acoustic stage this year is one of our best so far with MPF adding Irish hunk ENDA MCCALLAN, scouse reprobate CARL MOORCROFT and TIM LOUD in to the mix.
