Several bands have been added to the line up this week for next years MPF (Manchester Punk Festival). Among the new additions are UK hardcore legends Discharge, who will be celebrating their 40th anniversary in 2020. With its mix of hardcore intensities, thrash riffs and pointed political messages, Discharge’s 1981 release ‘Why?’ remains a favourite among hardcore fans. Their appearance at the independent festival is a big draw for the event.
US punks The Flatliners are heading out on a European tour during the second half of August.
