Punk is not dead, but it’s certainly changed, or rather elements of the punk mindset can be found in all sorts of antics, much like AFENDS, Electric & SWITCHED KICKOUT’s fifth installment of their SVRF PVNK video series titled “REVENGE OF THE KOOKS.” The video is a raucous cascade of live music, skating, surfing, art, tattoos, lots of drinking and a bit of thong thrusting, all in the good name of fun.

A sought after refuge from the normalities of life, and lasts all day and all night.

The video serves as a recap of the secret event, with this edition set “somewhere in les Landes” in Southwestern France that wasn’t officially unveiled until the morning of. Featuring in the epic all-night party are Cannery Terror, YO NO SE, Travel Check, Le Mutants, FAIRE, and DJ sets from Sharky & Dreamtime, and Musique d’Apéritif. For art, the event brought in the talents of Freak City, and tattoos by Koopa Tattoos, Luis Martins and Denis of BODYKUSTOM tattoo. The skate efforts came in thanks to cOLLAPSe skateboards & the Skullcandy team.


The invite-only event happened during the days of September 30 to November 2, and is a sought after refuge from the normalities of life, and lasts all day and all night, starting from 5PM and ending all the way through to 6AM on the last day (or morning). While likewise festivals aim to offer the same intimate concept, the recap video obviously shows that the French know how to do it, and do it well.
