Washington D.C.’s Damaged City Fest has announced the initial lineup for 2020. The eighth-annual event is billed as an all-ages celebration of punk and hardcore in the capital and will take place on April 10 and 11 at Good Fast Cheap and DC9.
Hardcore is heavily represented in the first wave of bands who also have a strong international flavor. Finland, Greece, U.K., and Columbia are all represented along with underground acts from all corners of the U.S.
Damaged City was founded by Coke Bust bandmates Chris Moore and Nick Candela. They wanted to showcase all the great D.C. groups and also bring in others that usually skipped the city. Trapped Under Ice, Destruktions, Appendix, Chain Cult, Spine, Lion of Judah, Wound Man, Secretors, and Hate Preachers top the list of more than two dozen bands announced so far.
