A PUNK festival fundraiser in aid of Latin American street children will be coming to a popular nightclub for three days of raucous musical fun.
Punk 4 the Homeless will be bringing 50 of the UK punk scene’s finest acts to perform at its Cheap As Chips festival at the Velvet nightclub in Chapel St Leonards.
Organsier Gary ‘Eagle’ Eagling hopes to make the event an annual fixture for the Lincolnshire-based charity in its bid to save deprived street children from their terrible lives of poverty and persecution.
All of the bands have agreed to perform for free to help raise more funds for Casa Alianza, an organisation which directly helps street children in South America.
Jamie Price, whose band Saving Sebastian, will be performing at the event, said: “Making noise to tell the world what’s wrong with it - isn’t that what punk is about?”
The three day event kicks off this Friday, August 19 at 5pm and runs through until midnight on Sunday, featuring a diverse range of bands, embracing every element of the genre.
An anticipated 300 punk fans are expected to amass for the festival, which costs just £20 for a three-day pass.
Day tickets are also available and can be bought on the door.
