Hardback Cafe


211 W University Ave, Gainesville, FL

Hardback Cafe- Gainesville’s original Punk Rock venue, established in 1989, for 10 years it was a major facilitator for the local and national punk scene of that era. Hardback was re-opened in 2015, and continues to provide local bands a start-up venue, with a house show vibe. As always, our goal is to be home for local and regional artists. Fest returns us to our roots with punk rock bands from all over.

Hardback is a split level venue with a bar and hangout spaces upstairs and down, with a stage area downstairs.
Beer and Wine, and 2 smoking patios, one up, one down.
