-TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY, MAY 27-
San Antonio, Texas (May 24, 2016) – San Antonio-based booking and promotions companies Twin Productions & Korova Entertainment are proud to present the inaugural Remember the Punks music festival featuring an all-punk lineup filled with old school headliners such as The Vandals, The Exploited, MXPX and support from up-and-comers PEARS, Potato Pirates and San Antonio's own Piñata Protest. This single-day festival will be held on Saturday, October 1 at Alamo City Music Hall, located at 1305 E. Houston Street in downtown San Antonio. Tickets will go on sale this Friday, May 27 at 10 a.m.
The Remember the Punks lineup features over 25 bands across two stages. Appearing at their only Texas stop will be headliners The Exploited, The Vandals, MXPX, Sick of it All, TSOL (The Sons of Liberty), The Dickies, and Anti-Nowhere League. These iconic punk bands will come together for an experience similar to those of the early days of Warped Tour. Also on the bill are Texan bands 30footfall, Lower Class Brats, and Piñata Protest.
Other notable acts include Voodoo Glow Skulls, The Casualties, SlapShot, Sloppy Seconds, The Toasters and D.I. Maintaining the spirit of a homegrown, independent Texas festival, the lineup will also feature acts from San Antonio, Austin, Dallas, and Corpus Christi.
“After a decade of working closely with the punk rock music community, I felt the time was now to bring San Antonio a festival to call our own. Inspired by startup festivals like Punk Rock Bowling in Las Vegas and The Fest in Florida, I collaborated with Erica (of Twin Productions) to curate a lineup that would feature a balance of national bands our city knows and loves year after year, along with some ‘first time in a long time’ type performances,” Angel Castorena, Festival Curator and Founder of Korova Entertainment.
“San Antonio is the city known for making its last stand at the Alamo. In priding ourselves for being a long-forgotten key component of the music industry, we feel it’s necessary to remind everyone that it's time to ‘Remember the Punks,” continued Castorena.
General admission tickets start at $49 and a limited amount of VIP tickets priced at $150 for the festival both go on sale Friday, May 27 at 10 a.m. at www.twinproductionstexas.com and www.rememberthepunks.com.
