Benifest organisers Chris Scott and Alan Curley and Chris’s wife Kelly, from Morecambe, decided to hold the event again following the success of last year’s. Chris decided that the proceeds from the event would go to support Carnforth charityUnique Kidz & Co as his stepson attends the after school club there.

“Benifest is an opportunity for punks from around the North West to get together and enjoy a massive range of punk bands from across the country,” said Chris. “We are expecting punks from as far afield as Yorkshire, the South and Scotland.”

The Trimpell is well known as a punk venue through the annual Nice ‘n’ Sleazy festival.

The line-up includes Dysphonia (inset), Thee Overdose, Lagon,Diablo 66, Potential Victims, State Control and Razorblade Smile.
