Appalachia maintains its superstitions, its sightings of Big Foot and mothman, its ghost tales and folk stories of the macabre. PunktoberFest celebrates that tradition by bringing horror punk bands alongside more traditional punk rock to capture the energy of the solstice and keep the evil spirits at bay.

Coming Soon

Punk Against Cancer


We are planning a fourth SMPA event for this time each year.  Please come back often for updated details

Punk Picnic

Savage Mountain Punk Picnic


After a long winter stuck inside, we invite music fans to leave their houses with an outdoor show featuring original Appalachian punk rock. We keep the DIY spirit alive, too, beyond the music with craft vendors, artisan makers, and food trucks reminding us punk is an aesthetic not just a type of music.
