New to the festival this year is The Lunchbox Stage. From Punk Island's Facebook:
The Lunchbox Stage is a new addition to Punk Island 2019. It has been assembled the in memory of James (Lunchbox) Giunta who struggled with mental health and drug addiction.
This stages main goal is to raise awareness. There is a direct connection to people not feeling good about things in life and then using substances to mask the way they feel so they don’t have to hurt inside.
We will be doing FREE Narcan training and distribution every hour at our stage if anyone is interested in getting some free information and help.
Punk Island runs from 10 AM-8 PM on June 22. Check out pictures from the 2018 edition in the gallery above.
