***LINE UP***

A band that need no introduction,Darko take elements of the modern hardcore and mash it up with the skate punk sound, reminiscent of 90’s era Epi-Fat bands.

Darko have been treating audiences to one of the most incendiary live shows. Having played with countless bands from around the world Darko have garnered a reputation as one of the best live acts the UK + european punk scene has to offer. Their new album ‘Bonsai Mammoth’ is a masterpiece and has spent some much deserved time at the top of the punk charts.

Fair Do’s, from Manchester, play their own brand of skatepunk, riddled with technical guitar parts, sing along melodies, and a fast and heavy rhythm section. Enough to please any punk, hardcore or metal enthusiast! Their debut EP ‘Trying Times’ cemented their trademark sound and if their newest track ‘Hostile Comapny’ is anything to go by the forthcoming full length album is going to be huge!
