Be still my emo heart. Nostalgia factor 1000%. If you were a MySpace whore, the chances are pretty much every band you listened to in your teens is on the line-up for Las Vegas’ When We Were Young Fest.
For some it was just a phase, but for those who still live and breathe emo and pop-punk (with a bit of metal thrown in for good measure), and pine after Warped Tours of yester-year, you really can’t get much better than WWWY Fest.
The festival poster quickly went viral when bands announced their slots yesterday, and rightly so. Featuring headline performances from two of the scene’s biggest names – and two bands that are no longer making music together (although we can dream!) – My Chemical Romance and Paramore, as well as everyone from AFI and Avril Lavigne, to The Used and Wolf Alice, the internet refused to believe the line-up was real for a moment.
All tickets start at just $19.99 down, and pre-sale starts on Friday. Register now ‘cause you know this is going to sell out fast.
