+++MASSIVE THANKS TO ALL OF YOU WHO ATTENDED THE FIRST 3 CHORDS FESTIVAL AND MADE IT SUCH A MEMORABLE WEEKEND+++
However, we need your help.
The Le Grice family, who kindly let us use their fields and home for the festival were subject to a barrage of abusive phonecalls for simply allowing a punk festival on their grounds.
If you could take two minutes out to write a postcard from your home town saying thanks, what a great time you had and that you’d love to come again. This will give us much-needed support if we are to run 3 Chords Festival again.
The address for letters or postcards of support is:
The Le Grice Family, Trereife Estate, Penzance, Cornwall, TR20 8TJ.
Ever since the Pistols played their last UK gig at the Winter Gardens, Penzance has always flown its punk colours with anarchic abandon.
Now comes a two day punk festival in the Cornish countryside, set in the grounds of a once-stately home, with some of the loudest names on the UK punk circuit.
From diehard classic punks from ’77, to the second wave of British punk in the 1980s right up to today’s studded stalwarts all here to prove that punk most certainly isn’t dead.
Welcome to the 3 Chords Festival where we intend to make as much noise as possible…
On the bill and confirmed are: Ruts DC // 999 // The Vibrators // Vice Squad // One Way System // The Straps // Potential Victims // Crackshot // Roughneck Riot // Husbands ‘n’ Knives // Maid of Ace // Healthy Junkies// Bus Station Loonies // Dischord // The Surgeons // Molly Bloom // Pascal Briggs and Jennie (Of The Crows) // On Trial UK // Acid Drop // The Pukes // Andy T (punk – anarcho poet) // Acid Drop // Dischord // Pirate Copy and more to follow…
3 Chords Festival has limited tickets and is a small, independent festival without corporate sponsorship run by people who like their music fast, furious and punk.
Come to Penzance, in Cornwall, and enjoy a proper holiday in the sun…
