Blackpool 1996 saw the very first Holidays In The Sun festival. Since then 'Rebellion' have been to Morecambe had a name change to Wasted and taken their festival around the world to The Netherlands, Ireland, Australia, USA, Japan, Germany, Italy, Basque and Austria. There was always a danger of being just a retro festival with ever decreasing attendances so 2007 saw the launch of REBELLION.
Taking their established Punk festival with all the bands you love and want to see year on year and combining it with the best of the new breed, widening the scope to include many sub genres and the ‘alternative’ scene in general, REBELLION are proud to have an event that they feel has a true festival spirit. They have added Punk Art exhibitions, Acoustic Stages, Poetry, Vintage Clothing, Tattooists, Healing workshops and much more. The Rebellion Introducing Stage has been a real success giving new bands, and new-to-us bands a platform and some are invited back the following year to play on one of the bigger stages.
At their heart they are still a Punk Festival and they are still 100% Independent and a true D.I.Y. family run event.
