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 organisers have also announced that they have already confirmed Jimmy Pursey’s Sham 69, and Culture Shock for next summer.

The New Rose Festival will take place on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th August 2016
