Presented by:
NOT YER BUDDY, MODIFIED GHOST & SOLIDARITY ROCK

ARRABIO hail from Trinidad, Cuba, the jewel of the nation’s Caribbean coast. The band has distilled a unique sound, carving their own spot in the international hardcore community after years in isolation.

Whereas, it was once illegal in Cuba to play or listen to rock n roll, this 4-piece has been at the forefront of creating a DIY rock n roll revolution in Cuba, a country hungry for something new. The band includes members of the original punk rock bands that first formed in the centre of the country in the mid 90’s; who were instrumental in founding Solidarity Rock, an initiative which works to create cultural exchange with Cuban and foreign rock bands.

In partnership with Solidarity Rock, ARRABIO has toured Cuba several times with bands from Canada and the United States, as well as touring Canada in 2012 and US shows in 2013, playing shows with Agnostic Front, Death By Stereo and with xJUDGEx at the Black n Blue Bowl in NYC in May 2013.

ADICTOX are from Santa Clara, an important city in the story of revolutionary Cuba. It was the scene of Che's victory over government forces which ultimately won the war.

Adictox was formed from the demise of legendary band Eskoria, who were one of the early bands playing punk rock in tightly controlled Cuba.

Often acting as host band in Santa Clara's Club El Mejunje de Silverio, Adictox's shows feature wild crowds, trans-sexual back up singers and a message which can't be controlled. Adictox is carving out a space for punk rock in Cuba.
