ON TOPFEST WILL PERFORM ALSO ANTI-FLAG!

Popular American band Anti-Flag is completing this years Topfest festival line-up. This will be Slovakian premier for the controversial punk rock formation.

The list of the jubilee 10th year of biggest open air, rock festival in Slovakia is still getting bigger. Organizers of Topfest confirmed next famous name, which will please fans of harder music. American band Anti-Flag is coming to Piestany!

Punkers from Pittsburgh celebrate this year 20th anniversary of being on music scene and from mid March they are going on huge worldwide tour, on which they will introduce their album The General Strike from 2012. It is the tenth studio album of the successful formation, which intensively defends human rights and criticizes war. Moreover, after 11th September, Anti-Flag started open fight against American government and on following album, they criticized directly president George Bush and his „war against terrorism or against oneself“.

Controversy is hidden in the name of the band, which the band members have chosen as reaction to young people waving flags in USA on hard rock concert yelling out phrases about freedom and refusing fascism, while they attacked the ones who did not agree with their opinions. According to Anti-Flag, this was only other form of fascism, and so they stand „against flags“.

Looking away from strict opinion orientation this band offers great songs with sharp tones, which found its fans practically everywhere. Formation consists of singer and guitarist Justin Sane, drummer Pat Thetic, guitarist Chris Head and bass guitarist Chris Barker (#2). Justin and Pat stated the band in 1988, but they started to present their selves in the stable composition and with their own songs five years later. Their debut album Die for the Government was presented to fans in 1996.

In two decades, Americans produced many famous singles. This is the End (For You My Friend) is the best known one also thanks to it being a soundtrack to computer game NHL 07. To popular ones also belong: Turncoat, One Trillion Dollars, Die for Your Government, Press Corpse and more.

In case of Anti-Flag, the fun fact is also their own music festival ANTIFest, which the band established last year when in May 2012 they organized its first year where they picked artists to perform. Anti-Flag was now picked by the organizers of Topfest with faith that Americans will take care of a great show also in front of our audience, which is they are known for and which they have already shown on many top European festivals

On the list of artists of 10th year of festival Topfest, which will happen on 27.- 29. June 2013 at Piestany airport, you can find except Anti-Flag also many more foreign artists.
