Morning everyone. Ok so here’s the bad news, I gotta pull this years Wonkfest. I’m really really sorry. As you know, Wonkfest is a representation of Wonk Unit’s year, the bands we meet on our travels. Obviously a lot of our travels have been cancelled so meeting bands and arranging the line up hasn’t happened as in the past. About a quarter of our planned line up were due to be in Europe for festival season, not anymore. Everyone is in the same boat with their tours being cancelled. I’m so sorry folks. Tickets will be valid at next years Wonkfest or refunds available from Seetickets. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to message me on Facebook. Alex xxx
It must be nearly time for the next installment of London’s biggest DIY Punk party, the amazing show which is WONKFEST!
