Goner Records has announced their Gonerfest 18 lineup on their Facebook page. The festival will take place on September 23-26, 2021 in Memphis, Tennessee. MCs this year will include Henry Rollins and Gregg Turner. “Golden Passes” will be available to purchase starting July 15 on their official website. Goner Records is based in Memphis, TN and it’s not surprising that a lot of the bands scheduled to perform are Goner Records alumni. Reigning Sound and NOTS will both be returning to their hometown of Memphis to perform. Wreckless Eric had a huge successful punk hit, “Whole Wide World” which Billie Armstrong (Green Day) did a cover of.
The lineup includes Reigning Sound, The Spits, Quintron & Miss Pussycat, Negative Approach, Nots, Jack Oblivian & The Sheiks, Sweeping Promises, Human Eye, Wreckless Eric, GG King, Chronopage, Smirk, Aquarian Blood, Digital Leather, Archaeas, Optic Sink, Total hell, Eric Nervous, Ibex Clone, Spread Joy, Silver Synthetic, Sick Thoughts, Wilkins Sisters, TV’s Daniel, Rocket 808, Exbats, Green/Blue and many more.
Additional MCs and DJs will be announced throughout time.
The ad also promises live-streaming which is great news for fans who cannot make it to the show and would rather watch this in the comfort and safety of their own homes.
This year, Rollins made a special appearance on a virtual tribute to guitarist Sylvain Sylvain.
