NOFX, The Used, Bad Religion + Pennywise to Headline 2017 MUSINK Festival
The MUSINK Festival turns 10 this year, with Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker ready to bring a solid mix of bands, tattoo artists and car enthusiasts together at the OC Fair & Events Center in Costa Mesa, Calif. The three-day event will take place March 17-19 with NOFX, The Used, Bad Religion and Pennywise set to headline.
NOFX will head the bill on Friday, March 17 with The Vandals, Lagwagon and A Wilhelm Scream completing the performance schedule. The Used will headline the following night (Saturday, March 18), with support from Glassjaw, Goldfinger, Story of the Year and Hell or Highwater. And Bad Religion and Pennywise get to close out the festival on Sunday, March 19 after a performance from he Swingin' Utters.
MUSINK producer Travis Barker says, “Stoked to be bringing in the 10th year of music, tattoos and cars with such legendary bands as NOFX, Pennywise, Bad Religion and The Vandals.”
NOFX’s Fat Mike humorously explains, “When I have a cold I like to listen to Muse and take lots of Zinc. So when I heard of the MUSINK festival I got stoked! We gotta play it! Unless of course, I get sick.”
Fletcher Dragge of Pennywise says, “Couldn't be more stoked to be back playing MUSINK, one of the best festivals in Southern California, if not the best! Tattoos, music, cars, bikes, and never ending booze? How can it get any better? Always an insanely great party with good friends, awesome tattoo artists, and some of the best bands on the planet. It's a no brainer! See you in the pit, fools!"
Dan Whitesides of The Used comments, "We're so excited to be playing MUSINK in 2017! Travis Barker and company have been so kind as to ask us to play and we couldn't be more pumped! MUSINK is our first show back from being in the studio where we will be recording our new album. We love Orange County, LA and the surrounding areas so much, so please join us and get yourself a USED tattoo on your forehead while you're at it. See you soon!"
In addition to the music, fans can meet up with some world renowned tattoo artists and Barker's Famous Stars and Straps will also present the Low and Slow Car Show featuring some American classics and lowriders, including a few from his own collection.
