Manic Relapse is a DIY fest organized yearly in Oakland, done by punks for punks, and is completely DIY and volunteer-based, with no exterior support other than from the local Oakland punk scene. The fest takes place over the course of 3-4 days in various Oakland-based DIY spaces, record stores, punk houses, and larger live venues, and has been attracting thousands of people (and growing fast) year over year. Shows are spread out across the city, starting with matinee shows and moving throughout the day and evening to gradually bigger events, which culminate with the headliner events at the Oakland Metro Opera House. VOL. V will take place on April 28, 29, 30 2017 in Oakland CA, and these are the first bands announced. Stay tuned for round III of band announcements and more.
