BBA Taking Control

In a quote taken from the N.Ireland Punk bible "It Makes You Want To Spit!" released in Nov 2003 the late, great Joe Strummer (The Clash) sums it up thus - "Seasons come and go, and the music is constantly changing, but when punk rock ruled over Ulster, nobody ever had more excitement and fun. Between the bombings and the shootings, the religious hatred, and the settling of old scores, punk gave everyone a chance to live for one glorious burning moment. Let it provide inspiration".

They may now be fat, balding and not able to pogo for as long as they once could, but punk rock has returned to Bangor in style. 2012 saw the first punk festival in the province for over 30 years and was staged in the plush surroundings of the Marine Court Hotel. The line up boasted 15 diverse acts, both old and new. The 2013 festival consolidated on 2012 and really put Bangor and BBA on the map with some big name headliners as well as the local element.
