The FEST is back for round 10

written by: on February 26, 2011

If you’re at all involved in the punk scene then chances are you know that the genre’s equivalent of SXSW takes place in Gainesville, Fla. every year over Halloween. After a successful FEST 9, the organizers have announced the 10th anniversary of the festival with one ridiculously stacked lineup. Hot Water Music anyone? A few other highlights from the list: Against Me!, Less Than Jake, Bouncing Souls, Grown Ups, The Measure (sa) [final show], and Paint It Black.

Over 250 bands in total will invade Gainesville, Fla. October 28-30 between 11 venues. Organizers are hoping to get tickets on sale by April 1, 2011 along with the launch of a full-featured website: thefestfl.com

The FEST 9 accounted for over 5,000 people in attendance. Check out our coverage from last year’s festival here: FEST 9 coverage.
