Deconstruction Tour

29th April - 15th May

1999 was an exciting year in the world of punk, as Europe's equivalent to the Warped Tour was born, and here rose a chance for upcoming and everyone's favourite punk bands to show Europe what they can do and to take their sounds on tour together. Now in it's 6th year, Deconstruction is back with more, and has gone from strength to strength judging by this years line up! Deconstruction, like the genre, holds no bars, and spans the full length of punk's plethora of sub-genres, and this year is no exception. First up is Fat wrecks Only Crime, and we're talking straight up hardcore, personal politics, and instruments ready to explode. They are joined by the melodic punk and emotion of California's Strung Out who ooze more creativity than an art gallery opening, and Southeasters Smoke or Fire, with their gritty post hardcore.

If hardcore or emotional isn't your thing, then how about the sing along punk pop hardcore of California quintet Lagwagon, or the unmissable Smoke or Fire. Finally, to provide a little ska-tinged punk with tonnes of brass, are California's excellent Mad Caddies, try and stop yourself bouncing around to this little lot!

The Deconstruction tour also features Strung Out, the political hardcore-fuelled Boysetsfire and more Emo-punk with From Autumn to Ashes for your punk ears to adore. That's not to mention the wonderful Capdown, and no-one can argue that there are some of the best names in punk to be heard.

If that is not enough, two cultures that go hand in hand, and one which is an important part of punk culture, once again this year some professional skateboarders and bikers will be showing you their tricks and wowing your eyes, as well as the musicians your ears.

The skaters are Pete King, Ali Cairns, Dave Allen, and Jocke Olsson

and the BMXers: Zach Shaw, Sebastian Keep, Matt Fairburn, and Simon Tabron
