Another year rolls around which means another year for Total Attack Festival, a massive weekend of punk, metal, rock 'n' roll and everything in between, a celebration of the underground to raise money for a good cause, the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre in Melbourne as we've done for the previous 3 years.

The festival will run from Thursday the 3rd until Sunday the 6th of May, so that's 4 whole days of debauchery and madness (for a good cause!) for you to get up to. Here's how the shows will run, there may be after parties and extra shows but that will come closer to the festival.

May 3rd - Rixe, Shackles, No Future & more @ The Coronation Hotel, West Ipswich
May 4th - Chardons Corner Hotel, Annerley (2 Stages)
May 5th - Chardons Corner Hotel, Annerley (2 Stages)
May 6th - Brisbane City Boat Cruise (Afternoon Matinee) Ltd. 90 CAPACITY - Tickets available NOW
May 6th - East Brisbane Bowls Club (Night Gig)

We've continued with the previous years traditions of diversification, trying to bring as many new people into the fold without alienating those who've given the festival lots of support in the past.

So below is the initial list of all the bands performing across the weekend with more to come.
