Strummercamp Festival – confirmed for 2017

Los Amigos; the collective that organise the Strummercamp Festival have confirmed that the festival is to return in 2017 – this follows a year off, and initial concerns that the festival had gone the way of many others.

We are delighted with the news, Louder Than War has long links with Strummercamp, and are looking forward to the first band/artist announcements.

Organisers have confirmed that the 2017 festival will take place at Manchester Rugby Club on the weekend oof the Spring Bank Holiday

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.
