LATINO PUNK FEST San Antonio 2013
In the ashes of the Southkore Fest in Chicago, the Latino Punk Fest started in the same city and with the same DIY ethics as the event aforementioned. The organizing of punk and hardcore music happened by the strong presence of Latinos/as in the punk subculture. This is not an alternative scene, it is a reactionary movement; an active scene which aims to aware youth through radical politics, identity, sexuality, language, cultural resistance and DIY values, is the focus and strength within our subculture. It is not exclusive movement, punks and active advocates of this group strengthen our ideas by connecting to our neighborhoods, families, safe spaces, youth programs, etc.
The wave of Latino/as in punk was influence by bands as Los Crudos, Huasipungo, Condenada, Kontraattaque, Youth Against, Subsitencia, Sin Orden, Outraged, Despise You, Sbitch, Hit Me Back and others. Throughout the mid-1990s to present, the emergence of Latino/as in punk had and will continue to challenge the fashion of punk.
Latino Punk Fest started in Chicago in 2006 and the following year. It was later moved to Los Angeles--with a larger Latino/a participation and popularity of bands--in 2008. Now in 2013, the decentralized punk festival is brought to Tejas! In the city of San Quilmas (San Antonio). This is edition #4 to the history/herstory of the Latino Punk Fest!
