Azkena Rock Festival 2021

16, 17 & 18.06.2022 Vitoria~Gasteiz





Hitting their 40th anniversary as a band and after a decade without gracing Spanish soil, Social Distortion are without a doubt one of the most highly anticipated confirmations for any fan of So-Cal punk and rock out there. Fronted by the always charismatic Mike Ness and his particular vocal timbre, the Orange County band has distinctively fused punk with blues, country, and rockabilly, having played an essential part in the emergence of the early ‘80s punk-rock scene in California. With an unapologizing and solid style throughout the years, impervious to fads and trends, they’ve contributed such emblematic albums to collective memory and music history as Prison Bound, Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell, and White Light, White Heat, White Trash.

Twenty-twenty will see the Californians’ return to Vitoria, where they previously delivered a brilliant performance at the 2005 edition of the Azkena Rock Festival, and they’re guaranteed to play some of their best known tunes and favorites of an entire generation of rock lovers, like “Don’t Drag Me Down”, “Ball and Chain”, “I Was Wrong”, and “Reach for the Sky”, in a set that we’re confident to say will be unforgettable for those who’ve been waiting for them for many years.
