Are you having a Holiday on us?

Last month we ran a kickass competition giving away four pairs of tickets to the Holidays In The Sun festival in July, and the winners have been announced…

The Punktastic computer was inundated with entries, and the winners are…

Aamir Chishtie
Will Bryson
Simon Benham
Anu Sonecha
Joe Burman

Yes, I know what you’re thinking… that’s FIVE names. Indeed it is, because we are such kind souls we gave away an extra pair of tickets…

So congratulations to the winners, who should have received their tickets already. If not, they will arrive any day now.

For those who weren’t lucky enough to win, you can see the likes of Consumed, Jesse James, Fletcher and the Dead Kennedy’s at the festival in Blackpool over the weekend of July 19-21.

Paul, otherwise known as Sav, is quite possibly the only member of the Punktastic team to actually have a proper job. But don't hold that against him. He's actually a proper journalist, (a reporter for a daily northern paper) and so adds a bit of credence to the team. Except you wouldn't think that by reading his reviews. Maybe somebody should tell him that it is quality and not quantity that counts! Sav actually ended up working for Punktastic after meeting Nick at university, and the pair bonded over all things punk rock. Another guitarist, he also "writes a lot of songs about relationships, and how mine went wrong." Oh, and he loves the Ataris, if you hadn't already noticed. In his spare time he worships at the church of Kris Roe... Other fave bands include: MxPx, New Found Glory, Blink 182, Weezer, Midtown, Reel Big Fish, The Get Up Kids, Alkaline Trio, NOFX, Green Day, Deftones, Lit and Silverchair to name but a few. Hobbies include, sleeping, drinking, eating fish and supporting Grimsby Town FC. But hey, somebody has to.
