Last weekend was Manchester Punk Festival 2022!! And it was so so so so so so so good! Even though some of the bands weren’t ska punk?! I know, right?
I had the honour of volunteering for this ridiculous extravanganza, so I took my phone with me and recorded loads of it, plus interviewed people/bands/uninterested security guards. It made for some terrible audio, and a memory of some wonderful moments. Far too many people to thank, but I’ve attempted to thank bands and a few interviewees below. Thanks for listening. Hopefully I’ll see you at MPF 2023!
