Static Shock Festival is an annual selection of concerts over a four day weekend in London celebrating the best of international hardcore punk.  Now in its third year, the festival has been attracting a widening audience of hardcore fans congregating from all over the world.

The festival which is organised by Static Shock Records is completely underground and totally self financed meaning that it acts as an authentic breath of fresh air against the vapid monotony of the city’s increasingly capitalistic destruction of music venues.  Most prominently this was expressed though much of the festival taking place at the new DIY Space for London, a brand new venue totally cooperatively-run and funded which recently openend in South East London. This concluded with an exhibition named The Kids Will Have Their Say at the space showing the work of  Ollie Murphy, Ashley Rommelrath and Reid Allen which had previously been at The Doomed Gallery and a special karaoke party to finish the weekend off.

Photographer Simon Parris has been kind enough to share a selection of his images that he took over the four day weekend earlier this month and we spoke to Paco Mus; the CEO of the record label  La Vida Es Un Mus told us his top ten performances:

1. Orden Mundial
2. Blazing Eye
3. Una Bèstia Incontrolable
4. Piss
5. Digital Octopus (After party)
6. Sang
7. Frau
