Punk It Up are now extremely pleased to announce that PIU V will now be held, on the new dates, at Galatos, in the heart of Auckland's party scene, the infamous K' Rd strip. As capacity is always limited for Punk It Up, it's slightly more limited now, so we expect to reach the no tickets left zone much faster than normal. Tickets are still available at Under The Radar. The extra advantages of Galatos, such as less draconian noise control issues meaning the bands have to finish early, the Paul Crowther MNZM managed sound system, as well as the multiple levels of the venue, make it a slam dunk as a choice for Punk It Up V

It's no wonder that PIU V tickets will be the hottest commodity on the block, when you consider the band lineups, the plethora of DJs, and all the other band merchandise, punk vinyl records for sale, and the info booths, as well as, of course, the infamous After Party until bloody late.

Friday night, Feb 19, 2021, starts the two night extravaganza off with Instigators, especially reforming for PIU V, and they're joined by yet another act getting their shit together to reform, The Plague (with members of Blam Blam Blam and Pop Mechanix, among others). Proud Scum get their third PIU attendance badge as well, plus there's The Bludgers from Hamtown, new Auckland punk superstars Dick Move, and even The Barbs are getting in on the reforming especially for PIU scene as well.

Closing both nights, as is tradition with Punk It Up, will be bankRobbers, the all star covers band with X-Features/Fetus Productions musical guru Jed Town, No Tag's Andrew Boak, The Bombers' Shamus O'Brien, and X-Features drummer Chris King. They'll be making you pogo the night away with some well known covers, from both New Zealand and overseas punk bands, and will be joined by a plethora of guests from the NZ punk scene including Sonya Waters and Ed Geddes (The Instigators), Nick Hansen (Spelling Mistakes), Dean Martelli and Chris Orange (Terrorways/X-Features/Rebel Truce), with Dean playing his Burns Flyte guitar, that graced the cover of the essential NZ album AK79, and was recently re-purchased by Dean thanks to a very successful crowd-funding effort.

Saturday night, Feb 20, sees the return of them good ol' cow pokes The Johnnys, No Tag doing their final show ever, more Hamtown punk from current scene leaders Contenders, noise with extra noise from The Bombers, Tigers - NZs first all Māori punk band from back in the day, the lads from Devils Got-9, and once again, ruining the whole night at the end, bankRobbers and guests, however there's a small rumour that X-Features will drop a few tunes as well

Put all that together with a massive lineup of DJs including Dubhead, Miss Dom, Phil A, R.G. Bargy, Wastemaster, Johnny&The Dambusters, and many more, playing everything from punk to ska to reggae and anything else they want to, in between the bands (and late into the night at both night's after parties), information booths from some extremely worthy causes, and the myriad of vendors plying their wares, like band t-shirts and records etc etc, and you have a night, or in this case 2 nights, that you'll remember for a very very long time.

N.B. Punk It Up will endeavour to keep the lineups as above, but reserve the right to adjust them slightly if logistics require.
