Old Firm Casuals LogoA welcome return for the OLD FIRM CASUALS. After a brilliant Rebellion debut in 2011 the band have gone from strength to strength paying their dues and sharing a stage with Oi and Streetpunk bands from around the world. Great to have Lars, Casey and Paul back.

DOA Canadian Hardcore Punk legends D.O.A. have chosen REBELLION to be their last ever UK Show. It will also be their ONLY UK festival.

Singer / Guitarist Joey Shithead announced that he’d be seeking nomination as an NDP candidate so since January the band have embarked on a ‘farewell tour’.

Massively influential to a generation of Hardcore and Punk, we’re really honoured to have them bow out in the UK at REBELLION.

First of all a massive THANK YOU to everyone that made this years festival so amazing. There’s barely enough time to sober up and catch up on sleep before we’re straight into organising 2014….

And we’re really excited to announce that the mighty NOFX are confirmed as headliners next year. NOFX remain one of the most requested bands we’ve had and now we’re pleased to say we can give you what you want! As with the RANCID booking last year, we expect loads of you that only know the band by name to be really impressed once you see them live. Fat Mike and his band have been playing since 1983 – so make no mistake they are the real deal and have been on our ‘wants’ list since we started booking gigs a long time ago! We welcome NOFX to the Rebellion family and can’t wait to be partying with them in the Empress Ballroom next year.

Dutch Oi band EVIL CONDUCT are also confirmed for 2014 – this will be their only UK date next year.

SLAUGHTER & THE DOGS make a welcome return next year and we’ve also already booked SPIZZ ENERGI, DIRTBOX DISCO and a few others. We’ve also got requests in for our other headliners so as usual the festival will take shape over the course of the next year but with NOFX already confirmed, we know it’s going to be a big year.

Early Bird Tickets for 2014 are now on sale from us directly – check out the TICKETS page for info.

buzzcocksThe BUZZCOCKS played the first Holidays In The Sun in 1996. After a 16 year break they returned in 2012 to play REBELLION. One of the highlights of the weekend and definitely on many peoples ‘wants’ list for this year. So we’re more than happy to confirm that there’s no need for another 16 year wait!! They’re back and they’ll be playing  FRIDAY

Jello BiafraJello Biafra and The Guantanamo School Of Medicine make a welcome return to Blackpool for this years REBELLION FESTIVAL. One of the highlights of 2011 the former Dead Kennedys frontman made a lot of new friends with an explosive set. The band has a unique sound which they describe as having “some of the the spy-music-on-meth chaos of the DK’s while adding a healthy dose of Detroit style proto-punk mixed with layers of sonic guitar noise, and Weiss’ industrial excursions into metal percussion.” Make sure you witness their set – you’ll not be disappointed!
