Rebellion is one of my favourite all ages indoor festival with 7 stages (including the Rebellion Introducing Stage), over 350 bands, art exhibition and tatooist it caters for everyone. But what makes this festival truly special is the Rebellion team/family that runs it and the people that come.
For me it’s the perfect place to meet up with friends from all over the world, listen to good music and make some new friends.
Here some pics of the many many people I met.
