Punk Island Vs Porch Stomp


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. We aim to support a philosophy of creativity, rebellion and work to feed those who are hungry for a world where passion is valued over profit. We promote a counter-culture through our collective, art, music, writing and events. Punk Island's efforts culminate annually as a free, all age's music festival on Governors Island, as a not for profit organization we are funded by Make Music New York, the collective and the community

Porch Stomp is a folk celebration unlike any other.  Set on the beautiful greenery of Governors Island, Porch Stomp invites over 60 bands, artists, or performing arts organizations to utilize the historic porches of Nolan Park as a pulpit for performance and education, highlighting artistry ranging from traditional folk to old-time, blues, roots, bluegrass and americana.  Now in its fourth year, Porch Stomp offers more unique performance and educational opportunities than ever before with increased performance locations, workshops, food and drink vending, there are a million ways to get involved with Porch Stomp as a performer, student or viewer.  This year there's no better way to spend a Saturday in June!
