Punk-rock has been always favoured at the Coast of Freedom, because this music is filled with the spirit of this freedom, which happily unites people and gives energy. That’s why every year KUBANA invites the best punk-bands of Russia and the whole world - NOFX, The Misfits, Anti-Flag, The Offspring, Sum 41, Gogol Bordello, Ska-P, Reel Big Fish, Tarakany!, NAIV and many others legendary punk-rockers hit KUBANA stage. And we won’t disappoint you this year! Right now we want to announce two truly iconic bands – Celtic folk-punk from Canada The Real McKenzies and punk rock band from Sweden Millencolin. As always the geography is quite wide. And both bands will visit KUBANA for the first time, and for Millencolin it will be their first time in Russia.
The bands are quite different but still have many things in common. Both The Real McKenzies and Millencolin were formed in 1992 on the different sides of the Atlantic Ocean. The first performed stories about good deeds of Scottish people in Canada and the second played sunny Californian skate-punk in cold Sweden. Both bands became worldly popular. The Real McKenzies was taken to the label by Fat Mike from NOFX, and Millencolin went to the legendary label Epitaph. No matter the differences, both bands are united by their love to punk rock, crazy shows at the end of tether and of course KUBANA stage, where they’ll meet us in 2014. And it doesn’t matter what you wear – Scottish kilt or trendy baseball cap, you’ll still love the shows.
