NOFX’s Fat Mike had the following to say:
“The thing about camping is that really nothing can go wrong, because everything is already wrong. Punk rockers don’t really know how to camp. They know how to wear hoodies, drink, and lean on each other. The good thing is that we got a lot of generators and an unlimited supply of kegs (some are even full of beer). Hey Coachella and Bonnaroo and Burning Man …Watch what happens at CAMP Punk In Drublic. I can almost guarantee that our festival is gonna be way lamer and stupider than yours…That’s the point!…Well, I think that’s the point. Wait, punk rock doesn’t have a point?”
Rancid’s Tim Armstrong also commented:
“Fat Mike gathered up some of my favorite bands and people to hang out in the middle of Ohio. Rancid can’t wait to be a part of the first Camp Punk In Drublic. We’re looking forward to telling stories around the campfire with you guys!”
Pennywise’s Fletcher Dragge continued:
“Wait, I get to run amok with a bunch of drunk punk rockers into the wee hours of the night? Have you ever seen a 300 lb man do a belly flop on a pup tent? Well you will…game on! People who are insane enough to stay through the night better get their troops together…me and Fatty are coming for you!!”
