While decolonise festival has faced alot of criticism over the choice of this name to describe a festival consisting of only punk shows, this year see’s an expanded organizing crew and the addition of workshops to the itinerary. Despite the fairly minimal workshop schedule, weighty discussions including suicide prevention and race politics have been given space and are surely worth everyone’s interest, time and respect.
you can see the show line ups here, aswell as the workshops below – for the venue addresses check out their page directly. As a bummer of a note, the zine fair will run concurrent with the Sunday show which starts at 1pm.
