“Punk Island 2022 is going to be a little different this year,” said the Punk Island organizers. “As a collective, we decided we wanted to come back on a smaller scale and work our way up to what we once had pre-pandemic. We hope you understand and hope to see you in Brooklyn this summer.”

Punk Island NYC will also be hosting an afterparty within walking distance of Maria Hernandez Park. The address of this afterparty will not be made public and honor the good old “Ask a punx” for address.
Punk Island (P.I.) is led by a collective of artists, curators, musicians, and educators whose goal is to bring the vitality, diversity, and intensity of the NYC punk scene into the light of day.
“We are a community of punks who love music, musicians, and the fans, friends, and family that participate throughout the year to keep our culture true to the lives we want to live,” the organizers said.
Punk Island’s year-round efforts culminate as an annual free, all-ages music festival. As a not-for-profit organization the group is funded by Make Music New York, the collective, and the community.
