THE FEST is almost here! Every eager year THE FEST delivers the best mix of nostalgia and sweat to take over Gainesville, Florida for three days of PBR-fueled madness. This year, they have some of the bands I have tattooed on my body! THE FEST lineup includes 400+ bands, a ton of comedians, wrestlers, over 20 different venues in downtown Gainesville, Florida. It’s largely recognized as the biggest and most respected underground Punk Rock Music Festival in the world (and in my heart).

In addition to taking over Gainesville, THE FEST is welcomed into surrounding cities like Orlando and Tampa for Pre-Pre-Fest, Foreign Dissent, and PRE FEST 6!
PRE FEST is an Official FEST production, sharing some of the headliners in lovely downtown Tampa, FL (Ybor City) on Wednesday and Thursday.
Pre-Pre-Fest is the first unofficial FEST production and boasts the DIY attitude cemented in the foundations of FEST on Tuesday night before Pre-Fest.
My favorite unofficial FEST related event is called FOREIGN DISSENT and captures only international artists touring to america’s wang. Start your FEST WEEK off right in Orlando on Monday night!
