With the last year’s Fluff Fest done and dusted, it’s time to look to this year’s festival and, more importantly, both confirmed and rumoured acts on the 2017 line-up! It’s always arguably one of the most talked-about topics in the Spring/Summer time when it comes to the subject of European DIY hardcore, so it’s high time for us to give yoou some early details. This year’s Fluff Fest will take place on July 21st, 22nd and 23rd in Rokycany and several bands have already confirmed their appearance! The festival crew hasn’t revealed their official announcement, but around 90% of the following bands are basically confirmed! See below, report new bands or incorrectly added acts using the comments section below and stay tuned here for more updates!
As usual, Café na půl cesty venue will host a pre-Fluff party on July 20st. The gig’s line-up includes SAFE AND SOUND, NINE ELEVEN, SENDERO, GERANIUM, QUESTIONS, WOODWORK, WAKE OF HUMANITY, VICIOUS X REALITY, CHAVIRÉ, HEATSEEKER, and probably a couple more bands, to be announced soon. Most (all?) of the bands will be performing live at Fluff Fest.
