ScumFest 2014

SCUMFEST 2014
Celebrating 10 Years of Bands, Benefits and Beers!

The 10th Annual ScumFest will take place the Bank holiday weekend of May 2014 from Friday 23rd May and ending the evening of May 25th
DATES: May 23rd-25th 2014

THE BENEFIT
As always ScumFest is a charity event, bands play for travel costs (or sometimes less) and all proceeds got to towards the benefit the festival is in aid of. ScumFest 2014 will be a benefit for ANTI FASCIST ACTION (ANTIFA) whom the SFC have the upmost respect for and who’s continued action is perhaps even more urgent in the current UK and European political climates

THE LINE-UP
The SFC have spent a lot of time this year achieving this year’s line-up, and it’s certainly one we are proud of. This years bands span the DIY punk gambit from 1978 to present. All relevant and all unique, influential and PUNK!

20 bands.
6 countries.
3 days….

THE VENUE
ScumFest will return to the north of the river once again and will be held in Tufnell park @ the Dome and Boston Arms respectively.
The SFC considered one or two other venues but felt the capacity and quality of sound of the Dome and Boston Arms best suited the fest. Although perhaps not as DIY as we wanted it is definitely the better suited option especially considering 9 of this years bands are travelling from abroad for the Fest and we are anticipating our largest festival yet!
