A new camping festival dubbed Camp Anarchy will set up shop outside Columbus, Ohio, this summer with a lineup packed with punk rock legends. The May 31-June 2 show at Legend Valley will feature sets from Rancid, The Offspring, NOFX, Bad Religion, Pennywise, X, Suicidal Tendencies, Less Than Jake and many more. 

In addition to craft beer tastings, an announcement for the festival promises plenty of other attractions, including a dodgeball arena, fair games, scavenger hunts, a s'mores station, super-sized beer pong and Jenga and the Flea's Market Vendor Village. In a statement, the event's co-producer John Reese said, "A punker's dream... three days of the best bands and so much to do while camping under the stars in Ohio. What could be better?" 

General admission tickets, VIP packages and camping options for Camp Anarchy will go on sale on Friday (Dec. 14) at 10:00 a.m. ET here.

More bands will be announced at a later date. For now, the daily lineups are:  

May 31: The Offspring, Fear, X, Sick Of It All, Strung Out, Death By Stereo

June 1: Rancid, Pennywise, Suicidal Tendencies, The Damned, Off!, The Suicide Machines, A Wilhelm Scream, Voodoo Glow Skulls

June 2: NOFX, Bad Religion, Less Than Jake, T.S.O.L., The Bronx

"Super stoked to be taking part in the first ever Camp Anarchy music and camping fest next year!!! Looks like Legend Valley will become ground zero for some serious punk rock debauchery and musical mayhem," wrote Pennywise's Fletcher Dragge. "What the f*ck? Does the lineup get better? Craft beer tastings, shit to buy, shit to eat, booze to drink, and camping chaos till all hours? There is no question that this is gonna be a f*cking crazy good three days!!! Not to mention, this will be NOFX's first performance in America in over a year...who the f*ck is gonna miss that shit?! I’m not!! See you in the pit f*ckers! That’s where I’ll be!!”
