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

Yay, it’s taken a mighty effort, but Mark Richards (and Julian Wallinger & Sky Nash) never ever disappoints, and his latest video edit is one of the most professional yet – showing off what a great day Wonkfest was last year.
Millions (well a lot) of punks, tons of good times, 30 ish bands, and a sprinkling of wonky magic.
Remember tickets for Wonkfest 4 are now available! Details here.
Filmed at the Dome, Tufnell park, London on 25th July 2015 with live performances from the cream of the UK DIY punk scene!
