What started in 2011 at the Bromhall Centre in Sheffield for a few hundred people, before moving to Canal Mills in Leeds, has now grown into one of the most important independent festivals on the UK calendar for the hardcore and punk scene, holding host to fans from not just the UK but Brazil, China, Australia and more. They have held host for the likes of Turnstile, Cro-Mags, Code Orange, Gorilla Biscuits, Title Fight, Incendiary, Basement, Trapped Under Ice and many more but it is the community spirit around Outbreak Festival which makes it something special.  Every person that attends year on year has been responsible for building this festival into what it is today, just as much as the bands and those who put it on.

“Our aim was always to put something together to really show the diversity within the hardcore punk community. This is a festival for everyone, a place where people can feel welcomed, allowed to express themselves however they want, meet like minded people and above all have fun. This was our goal from the start and 10 years on we are still living by this.”(The organisers)

The new home in Manchester will not only mean a bigger capacity, but other exciting elements that are to be announced over the coming months.
