Confirmed – Thinking Pink Festival 2017

No sooner had the Thinking Pink Festival 2016 concluded, Mark Sesin organiser of Thinking Pink and head honcho of Headcheck Music announced the date for the 2017 event:

Saturday 7th October 2017
The Hairy Dog, Derby

The 2016 festival featured both UK and European bands including dragSTER, On Trial UK, Super Fast Girlie Show, Headstone Horrors, The Crows, Brains All Gone, Paul Carter and Emma O, and raised in excess of £1000 for Breast Cancer Aftercare.

Thinking Pink is already becoming a feature within the UK punk calendar, with bands already approaching organisers for the opportunity to play the 2017 event.

Its a very long way off, but organisers have already confirmed Vice Squad to appear alongside Bratakus, and The Kut – in all over 20 bands will perform across two separate stages, there will be merchandise areas, raffle prizes from all the artists as well as a rather special main prize, plus the results of a special ‘Thinking Pink Bake-Off’ will be available as organisers look to exceed this years total raised for the charity.


An event page has been created which will be used to confirm all band/performer announcements.

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
