Scarborough Punk Festival in pictures! Day 2!

If you didn't have enough excitement reliving day 1 of Yorkshire's biggest punk event then strap in for day 2!

Nottingham skate punks Headstone Horrors opened up proceedings with a jolt of catchy, energetic punk that set the tone for the day. Good job everyone didn’t expend all their energy on the first day!

The North East’s very own Loaded 44 gave an amazing set that was the talk of the fest afterwards!

Zany Japanese punks Electric Eel Shock have been around since the mid 90s. Have they slowed down, mellowed out or become more sensible as the years have gone on? Have they fuck! Always worth seeing live, they never disappoint.

What can be said about the legends that are UK Subs? Charlie Harper continues to give it his all on stage and the crowd continue to absolutely love it.
