Newport Punk and New Wave Festival - "The Future Is Unwritten"

Before we know it the warm weather will be gone and winter will be upon us……..but the good news is so will this music festival!

Solid Entertainments is very pleased to announce that Newport Punk and New Wave Festival will be taking place at The Neon on Saturday 3rd November 2018 

In a country with many thousands of loyal Punk fans, we wanted to make sure that our first festival of this kind in Wales delivers some of the very best sounds the UK has to offer; and with The Rezillos headlining and several other very different, but striking bands in the line-up, we are in no doubt that this will be a great festival and one live music event not to miss!

Having made it into the 21st century that they sang about so often in the 20th it’s fitting that The Rezillos rebirth should warp them into the present still finding themselves firmly in step both musically and conceptually.  Their music has stayed edgy, having remained in its own league from the very beginning.  Certainly, like all punk rock it’s sometimes creatively derivative (er, like all rock and roll…), thus, while a lot of good bands can sound like everyone else, the really great bands are what everyone’s sounding like and yet whose sound simply cannot be repeated

Musically, The Rezillos are truly influential to the so-called neo-punk scene as the best musicians that recorded and performed during that era.  Their music is, upon inspection, “poppy,” but at the same time quintessentially loud, fast rock and roll that eschews the mainstream.  It’s upbeat, while at the same time showing a dark side to their songs (“Cold Wars” could be a theme from a yet-to-be unearthed John Le Carre novel-turned-film circa 1967, and “I Can’t Stand My Baby” is an anti-love song about breaking up because one can’t stand the other)

They prefer a planet where growing up doesn’t happen until after you’re dead and the world runs on high-octane, guitar-driven, anti-mope rock with the wildest hook lines.  The Rezillos are: Fay Fife-Vocal, Eugene Reynolds-Vocal , Angel Paterson-Drums, Jim Brady –Guitar and Chris Agnew-Bass

Have a walk down memory lane and see the band play “Revolver” on Top of the Pops in 1978 at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V2krmvOCBJI and “Destination Venus” a rarely seen promo clip from the same year at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gOAyoeCeA3Q

This year’s line-up so far comprises of:

The Rezillos – need anything else be said!

Anti Pasti – the industrial rumble of their Midlands home may have given way to the sleek hiss of hi-tech engineering, but Anti-Pasti’s thunderous locomotive rolls on untamed!

Chron Gen – born in a Hertfordshire school music room, one rainy afternoon in 1977 and raised on a healthy diet of playing Pistols, Clash & Damned covers!

Department S – evolving from a previous punk/ska combo, Guns For Hire, the band are back playing gigs for what is now the 9th year since they reformed!

Foreign Legion – their powerful stage presence is renowned for its raw energy and the band never fails to deliver a show that absolutely rocks!

Peter And The test Tube Babies – playing shows all over the world and cemented their status as one of the most brilliant and funniest live bands in punk rock culture!

Sham 69 – to many true fans who know and have followed the band, they still command respect and keeping the true faith of what SHAM 69 original!

With these artists step on stage (and more acts to be announced soon), festival goers can expect to see explosive, uncut, full on live performances and hear a range of incredible sounds with sets that incorporate a mix of punk in its many forms

No need to worry about searching for food and drinks on the day, there will be a range of alcoholic/non-alcoholic beverages, real ales available and a varied menu that should meet everyone’s taste!

ABOUT

Audio Farm Festival reopens the gates in 2018 under the original alias, keeping to its evolving nomadic roots at a new site, whilst One Tribe Festival takes a fallow year.

2017 saw One Tribe Festival blossom like a magical flower from its Audio Farm tree, from a seed that was planted at the first festival in 2013. So from the crew that brought you One Tribe, expect more of the same magic, music, people, energy, love, laughter and beauty, but in a more intimate space at Audio Farm Festival 2018.

The journey continues in a new and exciting venue at Shropshire’s Hopton Court. Nestled in the heart of breathtaking borderland countryside, the watercolour beauty of this Georgian country estate has uniquely stunning parklands, walled gardens, ponds and a beautiful out buildings, where Audio Farm will transform the site into a microcosm of light, sights, sounds and new experiences, etched together into a mesmeric harmony lasting over 4 days.

Audio Farm Festivals innovative stages play host to a wealth of handpicked bands, artists and DJ’s, playing a glittering array of music from all corners of our known universe. From sun kissed House beats on the Sundance Stage and clinical Techno pulses in Home of the Drum, to sporadic breaks and rattling subs in the Depths of Bass, and the psychedelic beats of The Trip. The Mandala Stage and The Nest is a galaxy of eclectic bands, world musicians, vocal acrobats and solo sirens that will take you to places both familiar and new, all interwoven with a rich tapestry of drumming collectives, circus performers and fire dancers, colouring the day and illuminating the night.

The Festival is a wealth of experiences, stimulating all the human senses and opening the portals to a world of possibilities in an explosion of imagination. A safe space to expand skill sets with progressive workshops and talks, where talented and knowledgeable healers offer alternative treatments to rejuvenate the mind, body, and soul through holistic disciplines, massage, guided meditation, gong baths, yoga and shamanic journeys.

Independent throughout, Audio Farm Festival is proudly a non-profit, non-corporate organism that funds the work of The Green Paw Project with its profits. A charity that resolutely works to save and improve the lives of helpless and vulnerable animals in third world countries.

So join the tribe again at Audio Farm Festival this summer and create indelible memories where footprints fade.
