The Fest Gets 7 Seconds, Japanther, Russian Circles for Eighth Year

Like a dirtier, more punk rock SXSW, Gainesville, FL's The Fest has turned into a yearly gathering of some of the world's greatest DIY punk bands. Now in its eighth year, the line-up has been announced for the 2009 edition.

Among the nearly 200 bands playing, some highlights include 7 Seconds, Cloak/Dagger, Japanther, Russian Circles, Shook Ones, This Bike Is a Pipe Bomb, Trash Talk and Youth Brigade.

The Fest 8 takes place from October 30 to November 1 and tickets can be purchased here for the low price of $60. That will save you some money for your plane ticket.
