Punkfest 2011

Postby Punkfest » Sun Aug 21, 2011 9:09 pm

Punkfest 2011...

...is not happening. As most people are aware, last year we lost the use of the Wellington Car Club, the venue we had used since 2003. A change of committee members within the Car Club saw them decide that they would not rent their hall out for public events other than their own, and for the bands that rehearse there. Bad communication within their committee meant that we weren't informed of that until less than a week before last year's Punkfest. We managed to save the situation to some extent by booking the Irish Society Hall for an all-day event. While we managed to make it happen, the venue isn't really suited to what we need. Basically we need a venue that is all-ages, can hold about 300+ people, is outside the ever-expanding Liquor Ban Zone, is not close to housing, is not too fancy (ie no white carpet etc) and is in a location that isn't too difficult for people to get to. Quite a lot to ask really. We've checked out a large amount of potential venues but nothing ticks all the boxes.
Rather than do an event that doesn't measure up to what we want, the organising committee has decided to take a break this year. We'll continue to look for a venue for next year (let us know if you have any ideas) but it's too late to be able to get one organised for this year. Time for us to take Labour Weekend off for once.

It will be replaced by Doppelganger-fest.

:( - I though the Irish Society Hall was pretty good considering. Guinness, close to transport etc.

Probably a good idea for the Punkfest Committee to have a Labour Weekend doing things other than working for ungrateful punx... although I hope you can find a venue as good as the Car Club in years to come.

Only problem with October camping is that the weather is unpredictable. Green Spikes was summer lovin' through and through (apart from the mud)

Wasn't piratefest in a cave? Pretty different. I think green spikes might predate it too.
