first round of bands announced for Fest 17 and Pre-Fest 6

The first round of bands have been announced for Fest 17 and Pre-Fest 6 and for yet another year, Fest will not disappoint. The three day punk festival, now in its 17th year, takes place in over 20 venues in and around Gainesville, FL.

Lagwagon is set as a headliner and will perform “Let’s Talk About Feelings” in its entirety in honor of its 20th anniversary. Cursive, a band it took many years to get to perform at Fest, is set to perform at both Pre-Fest in Ybor and Fest. Other headliners include Piebald, Iron Chic, Dead To Me, Tim Barry, and RVIVR among many, many others.

As for breakups, Fest is set to be the final sendoff of Ontario, CAN natives Crusades. In existence since 2009, the band plans to party two last times in Gainesville, with two shows slotted in two smaller venues.

This years lineup also includes the reunion of California’s Audio Karate who are taking the stage for the first time since 2007.

You can check out the full lineup to both Pre-fest and Fest below, along with several other details.

The next wave of bands are set to be announced June 11.
