Berserktown is back for its third year, this time at the Teragram Ballroom in downtown Los Angeles. What started as a “stinky chaotic mess of punk goodness” at Los Globos, has now moved on to a bigger and better venue (and lineup). Last year we saw Berserktown take place at the Observatory in Orange County, but with its third new venue at the Teragram Ballroom, we hope this unique festival has finally found its home.
The three-day hardcore/punk/industrial rock extravaganza will take place at the aforementioned Teragram Ballroom on August 12th, 13th, & 14th. This year’s lineup will feature Psychic TV + special guests performing Force The Hand of Chance in its entirety, along with the first ever U.S. appearance of cult Swedish noise-rock outfit Brainbombs, and a rare performance by Belgian proto-punks The Kids. To top it all off Ana Curra from Madrid post-punk legends Paralisis Permanente will be performing their classics, Inga Copeland (ex-Hype Williams) will be making a rare U.S. appearance, and U.K. techno lunatic Powell will also be performing.
Also on the bill: Destruction Unit + Friends, Croatian Amor, Pop. 1280, Hank Wood & The Hammerheads, Gorilla Angreb, Container, Marshstepper, Murean Humanos, Cold Showers, Rezzett, Personable, Rixe, Urochromes, Drapetomania, Honey, Vial, Jason Lescalleet, Nandas, Cold Beat, Angels In America, Horoscope, Criminal, Chain of Flowers, CC Dust, First Hate, Belgrado, La Misma, Wall, Drab Majesty, Warthog, Muerte, Mommy, Cheena, Shopping, Caja De Ritmos + More!
If you like your music underground and off the beaten path, this is the festival for you.
