FEST OR BUST Tour Series Premieres with FEST 11 Announcement

April 7, 2012 | By | Add a Comment

The trailer for the FEST OR BUST Tour video series has premiered on the official FEST 11 website along with the highly anticipated first announcement of bands for this years event including Frank Turner, Braid, Streetlight Manifesto and Lagwagon.

All six episodes will debut on thefestfl.com as well as here at D.I.Wireless – with a new episode online every two weeks.

In October 2011, the makers of D.I.Wireless embarked on a month-long road trip down the east coast of the United States to attend the 10th anniversary of THE FEST in Gainesville, Florida.

Along the way they met a number of bands who make the same pilgrimage year after year to one of the biggest punk rock parties ever forgotten. From tattoos in Asbury Park to hitchhiking in Orlando, the episodes follow the two Australians on a path well-worn by punk bands big and small.

The series captures thoughts about hometown scenes as well as what makes THE FEST so unique – told by those who play the theatres, bars and cafes, but are also part of the debauchery just as much as the thousands of people from around the world who swarm to Gainesville every year.

Bands interviewed as part of the series include The Bouncing Souls, Less Than Jake, Nothington, A Wilhelm Scream and many others. However, the series sountrack also proudly features music from awesome Australian punk and hardcore acts like The Smith Street Band, Stolen Youth, The Tearaways, Driven Fear and Army of Champions.
