Punk, at least in most people’s eyes, is all about not giving a fuck and trying to remain on the outside… Our next fest will feature bands from other genres and we’re trying to show that we really just love the genre. That we’re not these angry, aggressive guys. – Clint Hattingh (organizer of Punk Fuck)

We want to see young kids interested in instruments. We want them to turn away from the commercial bullshit that spews garbage about bling and chains. This is real music and we want real people keen on it. – Mbuso Moose Zulu
