The Burger Records annual festival Burger Bugaloo, announced its lineup this week and made all punk fanatics especially those of riot grrrl head bang with joy. The showcase is headlined by Bikini Kill, Alice Bag, and the Circle Jerks.
The Burger Bugaloo 2020 iteration will take place in Oakland, CA, at Mosswood Park on Saturday, July 11th and Sunday, July 12th.
The festival will feature a lot of these larger than life artists playing their first show in the Bay area at all, or their first show in a long while. Kathleen Hanna led Bikini Kill, for instance, will be playing their first show in 25 years. The Circle Jerks will also be doing their first show in a decade.
John Waters is set to return as the host for the event.
“Burger Boogaloo is the perfect cult gathering of young and old music rebels who hate everybody in the world except each other,” Waters said of the event.
