More info will come from the chch people in time, but I can tell you right now that North Island bands have confirmed, and they are fucking mean. South Island brings the party.

Hey hey, so no Punkfest this year and I kinda knew that for a while thats why me and Medusa have teamed up to put some shit on for anyone who hasn't had their fix of decent punk music in ages.

Fuck, course I know about the comp but who gives two fucks.

Anyway, appreciate this if you wanna come, no-one was doing anything down here and Punkfest isn't gonna happen so I just did something.

.

It ain't Punkkfest though last year it was "Never mind the Punkfest here's the South Island" along with other 'nevermind' shows throughout the country, maybe its time for a new start and name this year? As the Punkfest in Welly has its' own tradition which we're yet to see if it will continue.

Calm down chaps no one is reading the riot act, just thought for a new festival with a new crew sounded like it needed a new name to me.. whatever... as you say the name ain't owned by anyone but in NZ it does represent well over a decade of gigs that some people have put years of work into but I'm not going to have a tanty about it.

I assume it'll be called nevermind again, but describing it, chch punkfest just rolls off the tongue a bit easier.

Oh and they used to have the Neil Roberts Memorial Punkfest down there too, might even predate the north island one? Pretty irregular though I think, and hasn't happened for a few years now.

I quite like the Nevermind's too, its an homage to the good work Ross, Lynn and the rest of the Punkfest committee did for so long. At least that's how I thought of it.

The Neil Roberts Punkfest started sometime around the early or mid 2000s. Punkfest in Wgtn started in 1996. There was a fest in Canada that was called "Punkfest" that started sometime around 1994 or 1995, but we never heard of it til 2008 so it's just a coincidence that we had the same name. I think it's stopped happening now as it was held on some land a guy owned out in the country and the guy apparently died sometime in the last year or so.
I've not heard of any other punk event in the world called Punkfest, any other punk festival I've been to or heard of have their own names.
I'm wanting to go to Chch in Oct but not sure if I can afford it. Here's hoping!

Yeah I wasn't really sure. A google search brings up a few punkfests but I think they're all relatively new or one offs. Guess It's a fairly go-to name for a festival you can't be bothered thinking about.
