REBELLION returns to the Winter Gardens in 2022! After such a long wait, the largest independent punk festival in the UK will take over the the Winter Gardens from 4 – 7th August 2022.

More about Rebellion Festival
Blackpool 1996 saw the very first HOLIDAYS IN THE SUN festival. It’s been to MORECAMBE had a name change to WASTED and been around the world to The Netherlands, Ireland, Australia, USA, Japan, Germany, Italy, Basque and Austria. There was always a danger of being just a retro festival with ever decreasing attendances so 2007 saw the launch of REBELLION.
The established Punk festival with all the bands you love and want to see year on year was combined with the best of the new breed. The scope was widened to include many sub genres and the ‘alternative’ scene in general. Now it’s an event with a true festival spirit.
There’s Punk Art exhibitions, Acoustic Stages, Poetry, Vintage Clothing, Tattooists, Healing workshops and much more. The Rebellion Introducing Stage is a real success giving new bands, and new-to-us bands, a platform. Some are invited back the following year to play on one of the bigger stages.
At heart it’s still a Punk festival and still 100% Independent. It’s a true D.I.Y. family run event.
Daily and weekend tickets available to purchase at the box office.
Blackpool has long held an association with punks. I remember as a child in the early 1970’s watching them in fascination, with their multi-coloured Mohican hair and safety pins in their eyebrows, in the days when punk was a new thing and taking the music scene by storm.
Follower of punk or not, it’s fascinating to see the creativity of the outfits and the masterpieces of hairstyles that must take hours to perfect. It’s always a vibrant weekend and yet another face of this ever-changing and amazing place called Blackpool.

It’s an exciting time. Especially after the Covid-19 pandemic when so many things were cancelled for so long. But now, events, entertainment and festivals are back in Blackpool!
Tourism makes up 80% of the UK visitor economy. In 2019, the last ‘normal’ year, it generated over £100 billion, supporting 2.6 million jobs. So it’s great news that Blackpool is able to welcome back so many big events.
