CRAPFEST 2024 | Future Yard

CRAPFEST is coming home!

On Saturday 20th July 2024, Merseyside’s premier punk festival is making the short trip over the water to its new surroundings here at Future Yard.  The fifth instalment of the DIY all-dayer, it’s an annual celebration of the local wonderful punk DIY scene, hosted by Birkenhead’s own Crapsons, who perform on the day. Kent’s rising grime-punks Riskee and the Ridicule, with ‘kitchencore’ local heroes Pete Bentham and the Dinner Ladies returning to FY, along with Pizzatramp, Piss Kitti, Dead Raze, X-Ray Vez, Broken 3 Ways, Leech Bleeders, Bobby Funk, The Carol House Band, Bloodslugs, Sid, The Iconoclasts and Spam Javelin all perform.

“After four amazing festivals and three consecutive sold out events, we can’t wait to set sail across the Mersey to stage our fifth event at this ever-growing, thriving venue”.

New home, same chaos.

Tickets on sale now.

This year, there will be two stages catering to punk rock with ZERO CLASHES, with a new added area which will give punters a break from the madness will come in the shape of our live podcasting and discussion room.

The main stage will alternate with the glorious Garden catering to the punk world and beyond. Also, for the first time ever – Crapfest will welcome all ages with under 12s able to attend completely free of charge.

Curator and Crapsons drummer claims “we are really excited to bring Crapfest to our hometown. While we are proud of the previous four years in Liverpool City Centre, this move gives us more scope to bring extra dimensions to the event, keep the event in one venue with no clashes, making it much easier for punters to see as many artists as possible”

He went on to say “Seeing such a great venue on our doorstep, growing, welcoming more and more top class artists from all over the world to our fair town is amazing. They are doing so much for our community which makes us immensely proud, and it was a no-brainer to move and be apart in some way of what is going on. We trust people will enjoy what is sure to be a great day. If the sun can stay out, that’ll be great!”
