Yeah!!! We’ve been invited to play at Common Ground the first weekend of september this year. Have heard so many good things about this festival Can’t wait to be a part of it. Not sure what day of the weekend we’ll be playing,… but well be there for the whole festival 😀
LINE UP: (Loads more still to be announced!)
One of the best UK Household Name bands of the late 90’s into 2000’s and after a long hiatus have now reformed and will be coming back to Bristol for the first time in 15 years.
Beer crust legends making a one off UK appearance for us at Common Ground. Members of Doom, Hellkrusher, Prophecy of Doom, Vallenfyre and Impulse Manslaughter. Get the beers in!
After releasing ‘No Love Lost’ Omega Tribe came out as one of the best melodic anarcho punk bands of their time alongside The Mob and Zounds. They are back together and coming to Bristol for the first time since 1984!
We seem to have a theme with AOS3, so far they have played for us probably more than any other band, but for good reason. One of the best live bands around and some of the best people around.
2 SICK MONKEYS
2SM will be calling it a day next year. Easily one of the most hard working bands the UK and seen, not only that, but one of the best bands and the loveliest people we’ve been lucky enough to meet and a honour to get to put them on over the years. A no brainer to put them on.
If you have never seen DANGER!MAN then it’s probably a good idea you do. Amazing 80’s hardcore from Norway. All members have a long history of playing with Norwegian bands in the 80’s and 90’s like So Much Hate, Life… But How To Live It?, Bannlyst, Barn Av Regnbuen, Drunk, 2:20, Bøyen Beng and more and we will bringing them over for Common Ground.
Easily one of our favourite thrash bands in the UK at the moment. Relentless touring and absolutely shredding every place they play makes us want to put them on whenever we can.
THE LAB RATS
After touring with Oi Polloi, recording with Matt Lost Cherrees and generally being amazing people making great political music we’d be mad not to put them on.
Punk rock from Hamburg. This is a band we’ve personally wanted to see for some time and this is their first UK gig and will have an album coming out in the coming months on Pumpkin Records. Featuring members of Braindead.
VIOLET SCOTT & AMELIA BONES
The second announcement from the Wild Wood Stage. Anarcho feminist melodic punk from Bristol telling the tales of mid-twenties confusion, hope, a love of general greenery, and an unquenchable wanderlust and their first time at Common Ground.
