The explosive music scene of the late 1970s will be relived during the second edition of the Punkirola festival in Torremolinos on Friday 6 and Saturday 7 December.
The festival, which will be held in the Black Velvet Club in the centre of Torremolinos, will present some of the British garage and punk scene's most iconic bands, including legendary punk rockers, The Wasps.
Formed in 1976, The Wasps perform in the styles of the Velvet Underground and Iggy Pop & The Stooges. They were one of the principal gigging bands of the London punk scene during the 1970s, and their performance at this event is sure to get the audience pogoing.
Now based in Spain, Welsh rockers Picture Frame Seduction will headline the festival on Saturday night. This hardcore punk band have been together for over 40 years, although, as with many bands of the early punk scene, the group's music was considered too disruptive and they were largely overlooked by promoters. The band helped develop the hardcore punk scene in the UK, recording several albums with different record companies between 1979 and 1987.
Several bands from Spain will also appear at the event, including Absolute Pantz, Guiri Resort, Ficcion, The Altoonas, and the Costa del Sol's top punk act, The Reinfected.
The Reinfected is made up of several established musicians, including Martin Hope, former guitarist of The Accused - a group that received relative success on the UK punk scene. The band perform covers of some of the most influential bands of the era, including The Sex Pistols, The Clash and The Damned.
Tickets for the festival, which begins at 9pm and continues until 3am, cost 10 euros for each night, or 15 euros for a two-night pass. The venue capacity is limited so early booking is advised.
