The hardworking organisers of December’s inaugural GINGERFEST fundraising mini-festival are simply stoked to unveil the second batch of acts on their bumper punk rock line-up. With tickets already selling fast for this most important and tantalising of events, these additions will surely spell a full house.
Gingerfest is an exceptional and highly anticipated all day event conceptualised in memory of Canberra man Nicholas Sofer-Schreiber, who was tragically murdered in late 2013. Known widely and affectionately as ‘The Ginger Ninja’, Nicholas was a long-time and much loved stalwart of the Canberra punk rock community. A cooperative of Sofer-Schreiber’s friends from all corners of the punk rock community have banded together to raise vital funds for Vision Australia in his name, through GINGERFEST.
Today, Gingerfest officially becomes even more awesome with the addition of party punk sextet CHRIS DUKE AND THE ROYALS, Melbourne melodic mosh lords ANCHORS, Perth skate punk revivalists THE DECLINE, reckless ska-punk from STEEL CITY ALLSTARS and mighty good-time blues rock from THE SNOWDROPPERS. The acoustic stage will be rounded out with the welcome addition of ISAAC GRAHAM, LOST IN THE LINE (ACOUSTIC) and ANDY ‘THE MAD DOG’ MCDOUGALL.
Let’s not forget that the first announcement included such radical local talent as 28 DAYS, TOTALLY UNICORN, LINDSAY ‘THE DOCTOR’ MCDOUGALL, BORN LION, CLOWNS and more. Party times on the horizon.
The quality of the Gingerfest line-up is a stunning testament to the powerful impact ‘The Ginger Ninja’ made on the Australian punk rock community. An inspired and positive way to honour his memory, and help some needy folks in the process. Get on board while you still can
