In further Green Day festival news, Steven from the Product Youth fanzine contacted Punktastic regarding the Nottingham festival the band are headlining on July 20.

He said: “We asked Rock City if it was going to be the pop disaster tour, and we recieved an email saying:

“It is not that festival, it is a totally different one and we are waiting for other acts to confirm. Green Day are playing other dates around the country but I’m afraid I don’t know when and where they are.”
