Foreign Dissent, the annual showcase of international talent flowing into Florida to take part in Gainesville's The Fest punk blowout, is entering its sixth year and organizer Craig Mazer has just made the first round of announcements for this year's lineup. Foreign Dissent is by far one of the most unique spin-off events of Fest, and as in years past, it's going to be held at Will's Pub.

Bands announced so far: Fresh (U.K.), Teenage Bubblegums (Italy), Forever Unclean (Denmark), Chloe Hawes (U.K.). And of course, more to come!

Foreign Dissent 6 takes place on Monday, Oct. 28 at 7 p.m. at Will's Pub. Ticketing information TBA.
