Punk is not dead and that’s because The Bennies are making sure of it. Led by the charismatic Anty, their live shows are super fun and energetic. They have supported the likes of Kingswood in recent times, and are quickly rising in popularity as a result of their fun punky tracks. They are closing the event at The Globe Theatre on Thursday evening, at 11:20-11:50pm.
Then there is Kingswood. If there is one show at the event that is for sure to reach capacity, it’s Kingswood. These guys have gained a serious following in a very short amount of time, based on their genuine rock and roll tunes and vibes. They will be closing the first evening at the JBL Live Stage at 11:20-11:50pm.
