Tasmania's favourite folk-punk festival has released its lineup

HOBOFOPO might be the best-named festival out there. 

Australia's favourite folk punk festival HOBOFOPO is returning after its successful inaugural event last year with performances scattered across the city's best venues to celebrate a genre full of storytelling, politics, and reality.
 
Joining previously announced acts including AJJ, Paddy McHugh, The Dead Maggies, and This Is A Robbery is some of the nation's best folk-punk artists. Joshua Seymour of alt-country band Cherrywood has been busy touring solo, while Clowns bass player Hanny J joins the HOBOFOPO lineup with her solo folk-punk set.
 
Other featured acts include The Lawless Quartet (where metal meets gypsy-jazz), The Stragglers (recruiting all past and present members especially for the festival), and Hairyman (with captivating bush ballads).

HOBOFOPO hits Hobart from Thursday October 5 - Sunday October 7. Tickets via Oztix.
