Emo and pop-punk fans now have almost zero chance of convincing anyone they don't need to be in Las Vegas this October. When We Were Young Festival is now taking place over three dates.
“To everyone that was not able to grab a ticket on the first go. Now is your chance,” organizers announced just days after dropping news of a second date added. Legend has it, and we're not naming names, but apparently, one of the many bands on the bill couldn't keep the third date a secret, and who can blame them?
Live Nation's When We Were Young Festival is now happening across three stages from 11AM to 11PM on Saturday, October 22, Sunday, October 23, and Saturday, October 29, 2022 at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds in Las Vegas, Nevada. The only difference fans will see between all three concerts, according to a press release, is the removal of Wolf Alice, who will be replaced by Alex G, and La Dispute, both of whom were unable to perform on the third date.
The festival’s headliners for each of the three jam-packed days are My Chemical Romance, who had been forced to postpone their long-awaited reunion tour due to the spread of COVID, and Paramore who will be taking the stage together after a four-year break amid a new album release.
Also included in the massive, three-day lineup are Avril Lavigne, Jimmy Eat World, Dashboard Confessional, Taking Back Sunday, The Linda Lindas, AFI, Alkaline Trio, Manchester Orchestra, Thursday, The All-American Rejects, Senses Fail, The Used, Story of the Year, Saosin, Atreyu, Hawthorne Heights, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Bring Me the Horizon, A Day To Remember, Pierce the Veil, 3OH!3, Mayday Parade, The Maine, jxdn, and many more.
Multiple ticket options are available now in three tiers for each, with "General Admission" tickets beginning at $224.99, "GA+" tickets beginning at $399.99, and "VIP" tickets beginning at $499.99. Each can be purchased starting at $19.99 down. A $12,500 "Cabana" option for up to 10 will also be made available beginning January 31. For more information and ticket packages, click HERE.
“The safety of fans, artists and staff is thoroughly planned for among event organisers and in coordination with local authorities,” Live Nation says. Details on the festival entry process will be available in early September 2022. Follow along on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for updates.
