Earlier this week, Knoodle Promotions and Punk-A-Billy Touring announced Ragged Press’ affiliate status in regard to the upcoming Nevermind The Warp’d Tour Festival. Ragged Press is very proud of this status (and the fact that one of the two stages at the festival will be named in Ragged Press’ honour).
Like Ragged Press, Nevermind The Warp’d is very much a DIY affair. The brainchild of Mik and Kacey Da’re, NMW began as a response to a very flippant and stupid remark made by Australian based, international promoter, AJ Maddah, who routinely slagged off local promoters and acts, and since its debut in 2013, NMW has continued as an annual event, held in the first week of December, showcasing local and interstate punk bands. The fact that NMW has continued to grow since 2013 is somewhat ironic, given the subsequent demise of AJ Maddah’s fortunes.
Featuring 30 bands across two stages at the Brunswick Hotel, over the course of the day, and generating a host of sideshows across Victoria in the days before the major event, NMW has become a ‘must go to’, feature of many Australian punk’s calendars.
