Freakout Records And The Crocodile Announce The Freakout Weekender 2023

Freakout Weekender

Seattle, are you ready for a 2-Day Punk Rock Party featuring Viagra Boys, FIDLAR, White Denim, Frankie & The Witch Fingers?

Freakout Records and the legendary Crocodile are bringing the Freakout Weekender back to Seattle this March, featuring a loud, brazen, truly punk rock lineup of acts from across the globe — this year, Swedish rockers Viagra Boys and LA punks FIDLAR will top the lineup. Just as with previous editions, the single-pass, multi-venue event will be brimming with off-beat charm, unique lighting installations, DJs, and a few surprise guest purveyors of weirdo rock & roll charm.

Unlike past editions of the festival, this year’s event will lean toward heavier, slightly more experimental artists. Texas psychedelic prog group White Denim will be making their first appearance in Seattle since 2020, and Los Angeles band Frankie & The Witch Fingers will bring a similar dose of manic flavor to the lineup. Mexico City punks Carrion Kids and Seattle/Mexico City supergroup Mala Suerte will both be returning to the Emerald City, along with Kristine Leschper (formerly of the Athens rock group Mothers). There will also be a special appearance from Singapore indie pop stars Sobs. Tijuana fuzz outfit Axxident will make their debut in the PNW, and Los Angeles girl-group Lost Cat will return after a breakout performance at the 2022 Freakout Festival.

Finally, the event will feature a handful of local Freakout alums, including Monsterwatch, Steal Shit Do Drugs, Biblioteka, Appaloosa, and Rainbow Coalition Death Cult, five of the loudest artists currently raising hell in this rainy Pacific Northwest metropolis. Local celebrity cowboy Brent Amaker will also be returning as an MC and illusionist.
