Created from the mind and liver of NOFX’s frontman Fat Mike, Camp Punk In Drublic has punk music lovers and craft beer enthusiasts rejoicing. As the only punk rock campout in the country, Camp Punk In Drublic will feature performances by NOFX, Rancid, Pennywise, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, and more, along with a weekend of craft beer tastings (available for purchase), campfire stories from punk legends, and a slew of attractions including Fatty’s Midnite Matinee late night movie theater, carnival games, and much more. Located right outside of Columbus, OH, Camp Punk In Drublic will take over Legend Valley in Thornville, OH on Friday, June 1 (Friday Kickoff Party), Saturday, June 2, and Sunday, June 3, wrapping up the first leg of the national Punk In Drublic festival tour with a once-in-a-lifetime experience for punk rock and craft beer fans.
NOFX’s Fat Mike explains, “The thing about camping is that really nothing can go wrong, because everything is already wrong. Punk rockers don't really know how to camp. They know how to wear hoodies, drink, and lean on each other. The good thing is that we got a lot of generators and an unlimited supply of kegs (some are even full of beer). Hey Coachella and Bonnaroo and Burning Man...Watch what happens at CAMP Punk In Drublic. I can almost guarantee that our festival is gonna be way lamer and stupider than yours...That's the point!...Well, I think that's the point. Wait, punk rock doesn't have a point?
Rancid’s Tim Armstrong says, “Fat Mike gathered up some of my favorite bands and people to hang out in the middle of Ohio. Rancid can’t wait to be a part of the first Camp Punk In Drublic. We’re looking forward to telling stories around the campfire with you guys!”
Pennywise’s Fletcher Dragge adds, “Wait, I get to run amok with a bunch of drunk punk rockers into the wee hours of the night? Have you ever seen a 300 lb man do a belly flop on a pup tent? Well you will…game on! People who are insane enough to stay through the night better get their troops together...me and Fatty are coming for you!!”
