The source also stated that the tour will take place in the UK on June 2, 3 and 4, with the London date confirmed to take place on June 3 in Finsbury Park. Whether the other two dates, believed to be in Glasgow and Manchester as they were last year, are also outdoors, remains to be seen.

However, the bands believed to be playing are:

It is believed that the headliners will be announced later this week. Names that have been rumoured include Nofx, Rancid and New Found Glory.

Punktastic has already confirmed a number of these bands on these hallowed pages after speaking to various acts, including The Movielife and Flogging Molly.

The source also stated that both Green Day and Blink 182 had been approached to headline the event, but both turned the offer down. Whether this is true or not remains to be seen.

As soon as an official announcement is made, we will let you know.

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.
