Last week we announced the return of Manchester Ska-core legends Stand Out Riot playing the first Manchester Punk Festival in April, 2015. It is now time to tell you about some more bands that are joining us on 17/18 April.
We are very pleased to announce the next list of bands for Manchester Punk Festival.

80s hardcore legends, The Stupids are returning to Manchester. Last time they were here they played a sold out TNS gig and blew us all away.

Vanilla Pod are celebrating their 20th anniversary in 2015 and will be releasing new material to coincide with that, as well as organising the impressive looking Podstock festival. 
Manchester ska-core band, Stand Out Riot, will be making a welcome return after a 2 year break. We also have Roughneck Riot, who are currently tearing up venues all over Europe with their brand of folk punk.

Melodic punkers, Bear Trade, fast punk band, Tosserlad, Ipswich hardcore punks, The Domestics, Leeds skate punks, Acid Drop and the much loved 2 Sick Monkeys have all been added to the bill. They will be joined by a relatively new band, Jenkem, who have formed out of the ashes of Hated Til Proven.
Then there is Sombulance who are a 5 piece fat wreck influenced punk band from South England and Dead Neck who are a 3 piece melodic hardcore band currently gaining a reputation for heavy touring.

Manchester Punk Festival

MPF people. Get excited. The first Manchester Punk Festival is coming. 17/18 April 2015. Save the date.

Last years TNSrecords all-dayer was absolutely amazing. We were completely blown away by the amount of people that wanted to join us in celebrating 10 years of TNS. This left us with the kind of problem that you want to have. How can we possible follow that next year?

Easy, we get together we some great Manchester punk promoters to create something new and exciting, bigger and better. TNS has always been about collaborating with like minded people, working together to achieve something positive. So with that in mind, we present to you Manchester Punk Festival (MPF) brought to you by ourselves and our friends in Moving North and Anarchistic Undertones. We are big fans of what they do and always attend their events.Manchester has a thriving scene, so by working together we hope to combine some of the most exciting strands of the scene. You are probably aware of what they both do, but if not check them out: Moving North and Anarchistic Undertones.


The main event will be at Sound Control and be across two stages on Sat 18 April. Like last year’s all-dayer we will also have a free gig on the Friday and an after show for when the all-dayer ends. There will be at least 30 bands, probably more, across the whole weekend.

We are very pleased to announce the first bands confirmed for the festival are The Restarts, Wonk Unit, Crazy Arm, Almeida, Fair Do’s, Revenge of the Psychotronic Man, Great Cynics, Throwing Stuff and Wadeye.

So you obviously want in. Well we have a limited amount of early bird tickets up for sale at just £10. Make sure you don’t hang around as there aren’t many. We will be releasing the remaining tickets on the 1st December for £13. Head HERE to grab your ticket. All bundles will be sent out at the start of APRIL.

Keep an eye on the MPF website, Facebook and Twitter for all the latest info.

If you want something to happen, just make it happen.
