Hysteria, Damaged and Vinnies Dive is proud to present Mansfield Rocks, a massive celebration of rock ‘n’ roll riffs, moshing and beer after going without for so long!


Headlined by world-conquering punk rockers Clowns, the all-night party will take place at Mansfield Tavern on Saturday, May 29.

Joining the Melburnian stage-slayers and ARIA Top 10 entrants are slacker supergroup Loser, NSW’s fast-lovers C.O.F.F.I.N., Total Pace (Violent Soho and DZ Deathrays members), QLD’s very own punks Something Something Explosion, plus more sick acts to be announced.


Clowns drummer and Damaged all-rounder Jake Laderman says that it’s been way too long between XXXX Golds for the band.


“It’s a really exciting time because Queensland is always our favourite place to go, not purely because of the weather and the beaches and whatnot, but it’s just one of the best places to play in terms of crowd and just people. It’s just the best and we’re really excited to come back and play again.”


Even though he’s playing the event, he can’t wait to get amongst it himself.


“The line-up is great. A lot of friends in the line-up. I’ve never seen Total Pace before and that’s a band with friends in it I’ve not yet seen perform before. We’re excited to play with LOSER, we’ve been long-time friends with them and loving their new music. C.O.F.F.I.N. from Sydney are one of my all-time favourites, I reckon they released my favourite record last year. So it’s going to be really fun. Just got to contain myself and not get too excited. This is the problem with being a headline band … you get too excited and you drink too many XXXX Golds!”

Tickets on sale Thursday, March 4.
