Welcome to Camp Punk In Drublic! NOFX's Fat Mike has announced the one-of-a-kind festival destination that will feature performances from NOFX, Rancid, Pennywise, the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes and more.
It's set to be a weekend of craft beer tastings, campfire stories from punk legends and a slew of attractions including Fatty’s Midnite Matinee late night movie theater, carnival games and more. Plus, the party is set to go well into the night, with “Way The F*ck Over There” hosting all types of late night activities.
The festival will take place June 1-3, right outside of Columbus, OH at Legend Valley in Thornville, OH.
“The thing about camping is that really nothing can go wrong, because everything is already wrong,” Fat Mike explains. “Punk rockers don't really know how to camp. They know how to wear hoodies, drink, and lean on each other. The good thing is that we got a lot of generators and an unlimited supply of kegs (some are even full of beer). Hey Coachella and Bonnaroo and Burning Man… Watch what happens at CAMP Punk In Drublic.I can almost guarantee that our festival is gonna be way lamer and stupider than yours…That's the point!…Well, I think that's the point. Wait, punk rock doesn't have a point?
Let me be clear: A rabbi, a priest and a few thousand punk rockers go camping in Ohio… Sorry, no punchline. But there will be 17 great bands, 2 mediocre bands, and 5,000 kegs of beer. What could possibly go wrong?”
A limited quantity of Early Bird tickets for Camp Punk In Drublic Camping, Craft Beer & Music Festival go on sale Friday, March 30 at 10:00 a.m. EST here.
“Fat Mike gathered up some of my favorite bands and people to hang out in the middle of Ohio. Rancid can’t wait to be a part of the first Camp Punk In Drublic,” Rancid’s Tim Armstrong says. “We’re looking forward to telling stories around the campfire with you guys!”
Pennywise’s Fletcher Dragge adds: “Wait, I get to run amok with a bunch of drunk punk rockers into the wee hours of the night? Have you ever seen a 300 lb man do a belly flop on a pup tent? Well you will…game on! People who are insane enough to stay through the night better get their troops together…me and Fatty are coming for you!!”
