Rebellion Festival is the UK’s biggest annual punk gathering, with over 10,000 revellers descending on Blackpool’s historic venue The Winter Gardens every August to watch the biggest names in punk. Established in Blackpool in 1996 under the moniker ‘Holidays In The Sun’, the festival combines world-renowned bands with the best of the new breed, widening the scope to include many sub genres.

Rebellion Festival places an emphasis on being a “100% independent, D.I.Y. family run event” and has a dedicated following. It has toured around the world to Australia, USA, Japan, Germany, Holland, Italy, Basque and Austria. 2007 saw its relaunch under the name ‘REBELLION’. The festival continues to grow and has since added literary stages, Punk Art exhibitions, Acoustic Stages, Poetry, Vintage Clothing, Tattooists, and Healing workshops.

This year brings a special date, with Rebellion Festival honouring both 40 years of the punk movement, and celebrating their 20th anniversary. With over a hundred bands performing over a long weekend, headliners include punk legends UK Subs, Buzzcocks, The Exploited and The Damned. INFRINGE goes amongst the technicolour mohawks and Dr. Martens to capture this year’s most hair-raising styles.
