Sanford will get a little louder and snottier for a third year this weekend, as the Sanford Punk Fest takes over West End Trading Co.

The Punk Fest will boast a big lineup of local rabble-rousers dealing in punk, hardcore and ska including: Debt Neglector, 430 Steps, Yellow Day Union, You Vandal, the Longest Hall, Flag on Fire, Neverender, Backstabber, Pangolin, Ebenezer & the Scrooges, TV Generation, Born Losers and Sticky Steve.

Sanford Punk Fest happens on Saturday, Aug. 28 at 1 p.m. — and rages straight on through 11 p.m. (maybe even through the midnight hour). Tickets will be $10 or $7 if purchased through Havoc Underground in advance.
