REBELLION was in the air as thousands of punks made their annual pilgrimage to Blackpool.

The sun shone down as the brightly coloured crowd lined the streets in the town centre.

Tartan trousers, ripped tights and piercings aplenty made sure the punks did not blend in with the local crowd.

The multi-coloured masses had a distinctly European flavour with many travelling from as far afield as Italy, Belgium, Sweden and France.

Groups gathered outside the Winter Gardens as they eagerly waited for this music.

Mohican sporting pair Shaz and Gaz from Manchester were thrilled to be back in Blackpool. Shaz said “We love coming here.

“It’s brilliant to get like minded people from all over Europe coming together for the weekend. The atmosphere is great.”
