Welcome back to Answer That and Stay Fashionable, where every week various members of the Dying Scene team will take a question posed by you, the readers, and pour their hearts out in regards to all things punk rock: from favorite records and show experiences to embarrassing purchases and fashion styles. If it’s punk, it’s fair game. This week’s question:
“If you had the opportunity to one and ONLY one punk rock festival around the world, which one would it be and why?”
Read our responses below.
I’d like to check out Groezrock. There always seems to be a great lineup, plus Belgium is an awesome place to visit.
Sorry. I got carried away. I’ve never been to FEST and I kick myself for it all the time.
Of the ones I’ve never been to, I think I’d pick Groezrock. So many awesome bands play ever year, and I’ve always wanted to go to Europe.
If we’re talking U.S. festivals, FEST, no doubt! I’ve never had the chance to make it, but one of these years I will!
(special recognition to Punk Rock Bowling and Riot Fest Chicago, the 2 festivals I try to go to every year!)
Shit, there’s a lot of great looking festivals out there. The Fest is only a 3 hour drive from my city and the lineup is usually pretty awesome, though it remains fairly consistent from year to year. Then there’s Pouzza Fest and Amnesia Rockfest up in Canada – both of those seem pretty sweet and they always have impressive lineups. And then there’s Punk Rock Bowling, Groezrock, Punk Rock Holiday (which takes place in a beautiful looking location), etc. I’d love to go to all of them but if I had to choose I’d probably say The Fest. So I guess that makes the tally 3 – Fest, 1 – Groezrock!
