Punk rock festival coming to the Regional Cultural Centre

A PUNK Rock Festival will be held in Letterkenny in March which will feature live bands performing over two nights.

The event is being hosted by Rebellious Jukebox and the Regional Cultural Centre and will feature Downtown Dancer’ archive exhibition, film screenings, talks, and late-night DJ sets.

Among those featuring at the festival is 999, an iconic UK punk band. A veteran act on the London punk scene, 999 rose to fame during punk’s first major explosion in 1977. They are one of the most important bands to come out of that era. 999 includes original members Nick Cash and Guy Days, Arturo Bassick (The Lurkers) and Stuart Meadows.


The Outcasts are also set to perform. Formed in 1977 by the Cowan brothers and Colin “Getty” Getgood, the Outcasts are legends on the Belfast music scene. They were signed with Terry Hooley’s infamous Good Vibrations record label.

Other bands performing include Defects; Shame Academy (Rudi); Paranoid Visions; The Nilz; and 50 Foot Woman. The festival takes place on March 8 & 9. A weekend ticket is €40 or €25 for either the Friday or Saturday night.
