Next year New Rose Festival brings punk over the August bank holiday to Trereife House, in Penzance, Cornwall, the old 3 Chords Festival site.
The festival celebrates the region's punk heritage, when acts including The Ramones, Sex Pistols, The Damned, and many more played live at a small venue in Penzance during the heady days of 1977.
After three riotous years of punk and pasties, members of the organising team of the 3 Chords Festival have decided to move on in separate directions. One half of the team will continue to stage the punk festival in Trereife Park, they have issued a statement saying, "We wish our former partners in punk all the very best with their new ventures; we’ll be sure to keep you in the loop with their plans. So we are very proud to relaunch this merry ship as the New Rose Festival; theUK’s only punk ‘n pasty festival."
The New Rose Festival will take place on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th August 2016
Early bird tickets are priced at £40.
Tickets include three days of camping with all facilities, and booking fees.
The festival site will have friendly, local security who are used to live events as well as clean toilets and loads of room for camping. The camping area will not be too far from the car parks and there’ll be provision for campervans and live-in vehicles. Penzance is just down the road, a seaside town complete with prom, amusement arcade, pubs, and the like.
