It's free, it's fun, it's coming... Punk Rock Raduno 5 will begin exactly six months from now, on July 16th 2020! Now we're a little bit ahead with our countdown and we revealed that The Methadones, The Lillingtons AND The Dwarves have officially joined the party! Are you excited?
If you started planning your trip to Bergamo it might be a good idea to go through a few basic info: that's why we'll be posting a FAQ section on our website soon: yup, we're currently renovating our page to make it friendlier and more useful.
Let's cut to the chase though: so far we undisclosed that The Lillingtons will be playing on Thursday July 16th and now we can reveal that The Methadones will hit the stage on Friday July 17th as the headliners of a veeery special night.
It will be an exclusive reunion for Dan Vapid's band, and at the same time Punk Rock Raduno 5 will be the only European show in the summer of 2020 for The Lillingtons. And get ready, 'cause the setlist will be a total surprise too!
And then came the Dwarves, ladies and gentlemen! Despite the excess and the irony our “bad guy” Blag Dahlia says it best: “We (a)re for all the freaks. All the people that didn’t fit in. All the people that had trouble staying within the lines”... and we should not expect anything but an explosive show at Punk Rock Raduno 5!
Before we go on and tell you one to many secret, let us celebrate once again all the bands and good people that helped make Raduno our traditional summer punk-rock family reunion.
It was 2016 when this dumb little festival came up: we had no idea we would go back for a second year, let alone a third, fourth and fifth time! Our festival brings together people from all over the world and we're super grateful that the most amazing Italian acts hit our stage too: doesn't “By My Side” by our Peawees at 2017 PRR2 put a big smile on your face?
But anyway, for those who don't know, every year we put out the coolest fanzine and a compilation on vinyl with songs from the bands playing Raduno: why don't you brush up your memory and order the 'zine and comp from PRR5 on our store?
Else, if you're not feeling analog today, you can also check the compilations out on Spotify - here's the Punk Rock Raduno 3 compilation, for instance, including songs from The Queers, The Windowsill and Jagger Holly, just to name a few.
As you know, Punk Rock Raduno is a FREE festival and one of the smartest ways to support us is booking a room at the Bergamo Hostel: you don't wanna miss the chance to share the Raduno days with the bands and other fellow punkrockers!
Better hurry: the double and triple rooms are SOLD-OUT already. There's ONE quadruple room left and a few SIX-BED ROOMS, together with a few single beds in shared rooms.
So book your hostel room NOW!
Enough for today. While we say goodbye before announcing our fourth guest for Punk Rock Raduno 5 (their name ends with an "S", ha) let's give it up for our awesome art director Paolo Proserpio and the awesome-r pictures he took at the Dwarves show at Monto, in London (UK) on August 6 2007!
Thanks a lot, Paolo!
