Punk Island 2010

Sunday June 20 starting at 10:00 AM

Governors Island Water Taxi Beach

Punk Island 2010 returns for a third year in 2010, with more than 130 of the country’s loudest bands transforming the ordinarily quiet Governors Island into a daylong punk/hardcore paradise.

Bands will perform on 18 stages scattered around the island, as free ferries transport revelers from Lower Manhattan and DUMBO to Governors Island every half hour, beginning at 10am.

Free ferries leave every 30 minutes from the Battery Maritime Building in Battery Park, Manhattan, and every 20 minutes from the Fulton Ferry Landing in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Ferry service from Manhattan begins at 10am; service from Brooklyn begins at 11am.

No alcoholic beverages, pets, or weapons are permitted on Governors Island.

Once you arrive, programs will be available at the Punk Island registration table. Water, snacks, and soft drinks will be for sale, along with Punk Island shirts, stickers and posters. All proceeds from refreshments and merchandise go towards the Punk Island production expenses.

Directions to Battery Maritime Building: Take the 1 to South Ferry, the 4/5 to Bowling Green, or the N/W to Whitehall St. Walk south to the Staten Island Ferry terminal. The Battery Maritime Building is next door, 25 yard to the east along the water.

Directions to Fulton Ferry Landing: Take the 2/3 to Clark St, or the A/C to High St. Walk north on Henry Street until the end, then take a left onto Old Fulton St and continue four blocks until you reach the water.
