Punk Island is a free, all ages punk fest in NYC that has traditionally happened every June. The pandemic unfortunately kept the fest from happening since 2019, but this year the fest is back and slated for Saturday 7/23, in a new location, Maria Hernandez Park in Brooklyn. This will be the first year the fest will be held in Brooklyn—having previously been held on Staten Island, Governors Island, and most recently, Randall’s Island. The fest will be scaled down from previous years, with the organizers telling fans on their Facebook page “As a collective, we decided that we wanted to come back at a smaller scale and work our way up to what we once had pre-pandemic. We hope you understand and hope to see you in Brooklyn this summer.”


Lead organizer Antonio Rodriguez further elaborated saying “After the last two years, we are happy to announce that Punk Island is back!” going on to say “In an effort to renew and regrow our community, we are turning our focus over to a more streamlined music and zine festival. The day fest will feature two stages as well as a variety of zine vendors and workshops. This will be followed by a robust after party at nearby venue, Rubulad


While the fest is smaller than in past years, there is still a wide variety of artists performing, with 31 acts on the bill. We have your very first look at the full lineup which will feature:


Baby B and the Back Up Plans, Boss Selektah Diana, Chumhuffer, Depresión Tropical, Dino Skatepark, Dishonest Escape, DJ *chicklet*, DJ Sugarfree BK, Exit 17, Jerry Ex, Jo Mercado, Kartel, MAAFA, Macho, Moms Against Punk Rock, Mosey Jones, Motel Portrait, NCM, Non-Residents, Pancho Villa’s Skull, Paragnosis, Pinc Louds, Ratas En Zelo, RBNX, Shut Up!, Silence Equals Death, Skappository, The Dilators, The Loneliers, Tits Dick Ass, Winterwolf



Punk Island will take place on Saturday July 23, 2022 from Noon til 7pm; it is all ages and free to all. An after party will take place at Rubulad (details still forthcoming).
