Stiff Little Fingers is proud to announce the line-up for our sixth annual hometown festival, Putting the Fast in Belfast 6. This year, we'll be joined on Saturday, August 17 by our friends and special guests The Damned, The Skids, Problem Patterns, and DJ Terri Hooley.
Jake Burns, Stiff Little Fingers’ lead singer, songwriter, and guitarist of Stiff Little Fingers, said, "It's a real joy to be heading back to Belfast again this August, and especially to have such a fantastic lineup of friends and talent with us. The Damned have played CHSQ with us before, and it's brilliant to have such a spectacular and influential band return. The Skids are contemporaries of ours who we've been friends with since 1979, so we're delighted they could join us. And kicking the whole thing off is local band, Problem Patterns, who I've only seen on video but who have blown me away with their energy, commitment, and songs. I'm really looking forward to seeing them play. All in all, this will be a really special evening. I can't wait!”
Problem Pattern’s bassist, Ciara King, said, “We are absolutely thrilled to be joining punk legends Stiff Little Fingers for this show. It means so much to us to receive this nod from a band with such a rich punk history, who stood up for what they believed in and paved the way for us to do so in this country.”
