The Fest 15

The Fest 15

The barest hint of a chill can be sort of, kind of felt in the air, and pumpkin flavored everythings are suddenly everywhere again. Halloween shops are open for business, and Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights billboards are spooking the tourists along the I-4 corridor. Oh, yes, Fall is sneaking up on Florida and that can only me one thing for punk rock fans: THE FEST!

Now in its 15th year, the annual Halloween weekend indulgence of all things punk, pizza, and party related in Gainesville is slated for October 28-30 (with a 2 day Pre-Fest kicking things off in Tampa on the 26th and 27th). Top billers this year include Propaghandi, The Ergs (one of several reunions of the weekend), Dillinger Four, Braid, Strike Anywhere, and Less Than Jake.
