Rebellion 2013

Well its that time of year again when I’m starting to get excited about Rebellion….the B&B is booked, the beer money is put away and now its time to pick the must see bands.

This year there are no stand out bands that I haven’t seen before so my must see’s are going to be limited to the Rabble, the Casualties, Random Hand, Sham 69 and Captain Hotknives. Next up will be (if they dont clash), Leftover Crack, Buzzcocks, Ruts DC, Neville Staple, the Pukes, the Mob, the Restarts and Science Made Us Robots. The rest of the time I will be going to see bands I’ve not seen before….I may even park myself in the acoustic bar for an afternoon…an experience I have not yet tried.

I am really pleased that there is going to be a new band stage again, I assume it will be on the Thursday in the Bizzare Bazzar stage area. Saw some really good bands in there last year of which some are appearing again on the main stages this year.

If you’ve never been before please try it out…its fun, friendly, loud and well worth the money.

8th – 11th August, Blackpool Winter Gardens
