Downtown District is a young, re-inventive punk rock band from the Netherlands. Since the formation, the band has successfully re-inventing the 90’s skatepunk sound while breaking down the walls between genres such as post-hardcore, drum ‘n’ bass and ska. All this happens in powerful, eccentric live shows which are full of fast drums, sharp riffs, bold lyrics and a shitload of enthusiasm and energy. The 2018 selftitled debutalbum has put the band (inter)nationally on the map. The song ‘Anti-Social Syndrome’ is used in a video by YouTuber Colin Furze, which has millions of views to this date. This resulted in thousands of streams and hundreds of steady listeners worldwide. Emerging from DIY-venues, backyards and pubs to cemented stages such as Paradiso Amsterdam and festivals like AttitudeFest, Rauwkost and Garage Sounds NL. From winning the ‘Nobel Award’ 2018 to live performances at radio station 3FM. Downtown District has done it all and is not planning on stopping anytime soon.
