The question marks in our line-up have caused a lot of guesswork and the most interesting conjectures in the last months. Now the time has come to reveal at least one secret and in the process announce both bad and good news: Yes, it would have been Bad Religion … the emphasis is unfortunately on “would have been”, because the punk veterans unfortunately have to cancel. But this bad news is immediately followed by good news, because we have found a worthy replacements and also add three more bands on top!
For more than 30 years, the bros from Hermosa Beach have defended their status as the most important hardcore band from the second wave of SoCal punk. Known and loved for their relentless sound and middle-finger anthems that guarantee the loudest singalongs at SBÄM Fest.
Bridge City Sinners
Hailing from the mist-shrouded hills of the Pacific Northwest, Bridge City Sinners span the spectrum from Prohibition-era jazz to Appalachian death folk. Don’t miss this explosive mix of genres at SBÄM Fest either!
The Von Tramps
With powerhouse vocals from Jenny Enemy, screaming guitar riffs from Chelsea Oxborough and thunderous bass from Krissandra Anfinson, The Von Tramps‘ second album “GO” is already the must-have of the year. On top, the trio delivers an incredible live show that will also make a sensation at SBÄM Fest.
As support of Acht Eimer Hühnerherzen in April 2022 Die Partie has already proven that they are a live banger. Smart punk in German between rock and acoustic straight outta Linz, which you should definitely check out at SBÄM Fest.
A few bands have also swapped days (see day line-up below), but thus the line-up of SBÄM Fest 4 is almost complete – the second headliner will follow soon!
On July 30 and 31, 2022, more than 30 acts will rock the Tabakfabrik in Linz at Austria’s biggest scene festival! Already confirmed are top-class acts like Dropkick Murphys,Descendents, Millencolin, Donots, The Bouncing Souls, No Fun At All and many more – with some bands yet to be announced. Besides the phenomenal line-up on two stages, we offer the 10.000 to 12.000 visitors even more: Grandiose side-actions will provide unforgettable festival moments and make the SBÄM Fest 4 the perfect meeting point for the local punk scene and everyone who wants to join!
SBÄM originally started with Stefan Beham‘s designs of tour posters, album covers and merchandise for bands – so, in this art exhibit he is exploring his roots as a visual artist. He also presents international guests and their works.
2022 is all about standing sideways! In cooperation with the local scene and probably the biggest player in the international skate cosmos Vans, we want to bring the close connection between rock and skateboarding to life. Skater of the Century Steve Caballero is among others part of the party and will present his best tricks live.
These two areas will be linked together in the finest punk fashion to ensure the best possible fan experience. Stay tuned for more updates!
As usual at all SBÄM events, there will be a free contingent for people under 18 at SBÄM Fest 4. With this, we want to make sure that the next generation also has access to the punk community. Registration for those tickets will soon be possible.
Furthermore, a documentary about the SBÄM brand and the festival is planned, which will be available on various streaming platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime and HBO. Filming will start in Linz in July 2022.
We have a lot planned for 2022: It will be bigger, it will be louder, it will be an absolute must-see! We’re stoked for the summer – are you?
Organizer Stefan Beham about SBÄM Fest 4:
We had to postpone SBÄM Fest 4 a total of four times due to Covid-19 – that was pretty tough and painful each time. All the more, I’m looking forward to finally being able to put all our plans into action in 2022. And we have quite a lot planned: In addition to the great line-up, for which fans are even traveling from Australia, we have come up with two side actions to offer the audience a bit more. My youth hero Steve Caballero will be part of SBÄM Sports and in the context of the SBÄM Exhibit I will present my works together with other artists, with which everything actually started. After the past years at the Alter Schlachthof in Wels, the step to the Tabakfabrik in Linz is of course big, but our community is also getting bigger and bigger and I have the best team to make it all happen. We can’t wait for July!
