Published Nov 14, 2013Organizers of Montreal's Pouzza Fest have announced the first wave of performers attached to next year's event, with the biggest coup being that long-running Minnesota punk group Dillinger Four are on the bill.
"The almighty Dillinger Four will be playing Pouzza this year," the fest confirmed in a statement. "We've been trying to have them for Pouzza since the 1st year, and we got them now! We are very happy, we think here at Pouzza HQ that they are the perfect Pouzza Fest band. This is the most fun you will have all year. They don't play a lot these days and rarely in Canada."
Details on the fest began to be unfurled today (November 14), with so far over a dozen bands set to appear in venues across the city between May 16 and 18. This includes Dillinger Four's Fat Wreck Chords labelmates Mad Caddies, as well as Reagan Youth, the Turbo ACs, Restorations, the Holy Mess, the Creeps, Placeholders, and more.
While over 200 artists are expected to perform across nine venues next spring, you can see the current list of punky participants over here.
Three-day passes are already up for sale, with a "very early bird" deal pricing the pass at $60. You can nab one here. Individual tickets will not be sold ahead of the shows this year, with limited tickets going for sale at the door.
Dillinger Four haven't issued an LP since 2008's Civil War.
