Atlas Losing Grip will finally make their Manchester Punk Festival debut this year, having been forced to pull out of the inaugural event in 2015. The Swedish punk band are amongst a number of new acts announced for MPF '16, including transatlantic grunge punks Pale Angels and Scottish pop-punkers The Kimberly Steaks.
Manchester bands Fair Do's, Gut Model and Throwing Stuff have also been added. They'll play alongside The Repossessed, The Deadites, Chewed Up, Tim Loud and Nosebleed, all of whom join an incredibly diverse lineup that already includes the likes of The Flatliners, Oi Polloi, Sam Russo and Xtra Mile Recordings' latest signing Ducking Punches.
Manchester Punk Fest 2016 will take place over three days and across five Manchester venues from April 21st to 23rd. You can find more information, including the full lineup, here. Tickets are on sale now.
