They join previously announced headliners like Title Fight, Power Trip, Foundation, Rixe, the Boston Strangler and No Tolerance.
The lineup so far is rounded out by: Una Bestia Incontrollable, Career Suicide, No Tolerance, Night Birds, Glue, Stick Together, Give, Aspects of War, Nervosas, Freedom, Lumpy & the Dumpers, Full of Hell, Red Death, Hounds of Hate, Angel Dust, Sickoids, No Problem, Vanity, King Nine, Ajax, Pure Disgust, VCR, Farang, Demolition, Alex G, Sadicos, Leather Daddy, Aggression Pact, Blood Pressure, Peacebreakers, Nandas, Q, Cretins, Mommy, Absolut, Malokio, CCTV, Dress Code, Protester, Face the Rail, Digital Octopus, Concealed Blade, Wild Side, Fiddlehead, Strangled, Digital Octopus, Cryogenics, I.C.E., Triage, Gaucho, Dame, Scalped, Bricklayer, Strutter, the Strap and Dilettantes.
In addition to the music, the festival will be hosting events around Toronto, including art shows, a record swap, a discussion on punk documentation with Damian Abraham and Tony Rettman, and more programming to be announced in the coming weeks.
Info on tickets and venues has yet to be announced, but you can follow the festival's Facebook page for updates.
