Camp Anarchy inaugural lineup (Rancid, Offspring, NOFX, Bad Religion, X, Fear, more)
Camp Anarchy Fest is a new punk festival coming to Thornville, OH from May 31-June 1, and the initial lineup is already looking pretty stacked (especially if you like ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s punk). The headliners are The Offspring, Rancid, and NOFX, and the lineup also features Bad Religion, X, Fear, Sick Of It All, Suicidal Tendencies, The Damned, OFF!, TSOL, Pennywise, Strung Out, Death By Stereo, Less Than Jake, The Bronx, A Wilhelm Scream, Voodoo Glow Skulls, and more TBA.
Plus, there will be craft beer tastings, dodgeball, games, s’mores, and more. Stay tuned for more info. Tickets go on sale Friday (12/14) at 10 AM with radio presales starting Thursday (12/13) at 10 AM.
The fest replaces Fat Mike’s Camp Punk In Drublic festival, which went down in the same location the first weekend of June this year (also with camping, craft beer, and a similar lineup of punk bands). Stone Brewing, who sponsored that festival, cut ties with NOFX after the controversial statements they made on stage in Las Vegas about the Route 91 Harvest Music Fest shooting earlier this year. NOFX and Fat Mike’s band Me First and the Gimme Gimmes were both removed from the 2018 edition of Camp Punk In Drublic.
