new wonkfest poster with bands

WONKFEST 2022 IS ON!

Yes, that’s right – 2022 sees Wonkfest back and better than ever – still at The Dome, and still with its legendary buffet! Tickets are selling fast. (Tix from last year’s canceled show are STILL VALID). Updates on the Wonkfest Facebook page.

Our next installment sees us going back to our roots, focusing on friendship, happiness, and fun.
We’ll be upping the buffet, upping the sweets, upping the live screen print, upping the craziness, upping all the trimmings.

This is about every party you went to and wished you’d had a snog on the cricket square. This is about every party you went to and came home with a load of new mates.

Let’s leave our troubles at the door and have a bounce to a load of wicked bands. Let’s grow this as the year plays out x

DATE: SATURDAY, JULY 30th.

VENUE: The Dome, Tufnell Park, 2a Dartmouth Park Hill, NW5 1HL London, United Kingdom 

TICKETS: Get tix from See Tickets. Tix from last year’s canceled show are STILL VALID.

WONKFEST 8 – 2021 CANCELLED

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. I you have any questions don’t hesitate to message. Alex xxx

WONKFEST 7 – Viva la Revolution!

The 2019 Wonkfest was a BLAST!  Thanks to everyone who played and who came and made it special!

 

IT’S WONKFEST, it’s the funniest, craziest day in the punk rock calendar. The best in music, the best atmosphere, the best in people.
Am so happy to announce 2 of the most influential artists in punk rock history. Duncan Redmonds’s Guns and Wankers and the incredible songwriter Mr Frankie Stubbs himself.
I always wanted this to be my “history” line up and it’s turning out to be that. The bands and people that help shape my life.
The line up is complete but we won’t be dropping bombs on you ever week. It’s 6 months till July 27th.
We’ve got UK exclusives, we’ve got secret acts (to avoid booking agent red tape) we’ve got the regular Wonk family royalty whose absence would be a sin. We’ve got new bands, we’ve got buffet, T shirt screening, badge making, BBQ, all included in the price of a ticket.
We’ll be collecting again for the local charity most in need of donations. In recent years Hestia (a women’s refuge charity).
Please grab advance tickets ASAP. It really does help with the financial worry of staging an event like Wonkfest.
Thanks darlings! Love you all. Maybe this year we can escape without broken bones haha (that’ll be a first eh) 

Venue was:  The Dome, Tufnell Park, 2a Dartmouth Park Hill, NW5 1HL London, United Kingdom
