Get Punked

Ready to go wild? Music festival The Fest 8 is back for another three days and nights of debauchery that promises to take over downtown Gainesville. Featuring more than 200 bands from Oct. 30 to Nov. 1 playing in more than seven venues, this year will be the biggest Fest ever.

Notable acts include local favorites Liquid Limbs, Averkiou and ex-Umoja Orchestra member Michael Claytor and his Friends. National acts include Seven Seconds, Strike Anywhere and Dillinger Four. But The Fest 8 is not just for punk rockers anymore—it's for everyone who wants to get loose.

Aside from the 24-hour parties, it will feature a flea market appropriately titled the "Fest Dirt Mall" where you can buy handmade arts and crafts, including even a Steve Urkel stenciled toilet seat.

For all the information you could ever need about the Fest 8, check out Don't drag your feet, however, as The Fest has a tendency to sell out. Tickets are $60 in advance and $80 weekend of.
