Hey you! Yeah, you! I can tell you’re the kind of person who loves pop-punk and would drive anywhere for an amazingly stacked lineup consisting of 35+ bands, right? Right! So then you already know about Bloated Kat Records‘ Bloated Saturday 2. Despite the name, the festival will be held both on Friday, August 25th and Saturday, August 26th at Gabe’s Iowa City in – you guessed it – Iowa City, IA. There are still some two day passes left and they are only $25! If you can’t make both days, there are also day passes available. Grab you passes while you still can!
