The Inaugural Franklin Fest Draws Closer

  • Published in News


With less than two weeks to go can you really afford to miss out on the greatest garage, beat ‘n’ roll event ever staged north of Newcastle? Over July 2 – 4 the cream of the UK scene will gather in Edinburgh across three venues for an unrivaled weekend of lo-fi trash & Sixties-related punk raucousness.

Along with the previously announced opening night at The Safari Lounge and the two subsequent nights at the Franklin Cricket Club the Saturday afternoon now features a free show from The Bucky Rage and The Reverse Cowgirls in The Parlour a stone’s throw from the main venue.

Tickets can still (just) be obtained here and here. Whilst walk-ins may still be possible on the Friday and Saturday nights you don’t want to risk missing out do you?
