Rebel Fest aims to support and spotlight bands that have something to say and something to sing about, and this year we are stoked to have put together a great (and maybe little bit eclectic) mix of punk, hardcore, oi and ska’d-up punk . While we are primarily a punk rock record label, this is our chance to stand with other inspiring and hard-working scenes and say that we are with you.
As usual, we will be providing table space to organizations, collectives and distros that inspire us, and/or that we work with. Rebel Time Records has always been about more than just music and we definitely see Rebel Fest as an opportunity to spread our message. Please be sure to check out the tables and material.
And, also as usual, Rebel Fest will be doing some fund-raising. In 2011 we used a portion of the door proceeds to support a G20 defendant and in 2012 we raised some funds for Hamilton Copwatch. We will be announcing the recipient of this year’s fundraising shortly.
We would appreciate any support you can give us in spreading the word about Rebel Fest. If you do a radio show or publish a zine/blog, etc, we would love to hear from you. If you don’t well, heck, we’d love it if you put our banners/posters on your Facebook page or share this Event!
We want Rebel Fest to be as accessible and safe as possible. We respectfully ask everyone for their help in ensuring that the Fest is a safe, secure and fun place for one and all! Be kind to the venue, staff and fellow attendees!
Finally, we would like to acknowledge and thank everyone who has come to one of our shows/played one of our shows/helped out at one of our shows over the years. We really couldn’t do this without you!
We hope to see you at one or both days of Rebel Fest this year!
