Teenage pregnancy rate about to skyrocket.

War on Women mysteriously left off the bill. ENABLE THE COMMENTS THINK OF THE FAMILIES lol

We Can't Call it Warped Tour Fest


anonymous 167 days ago

Looking forward to KL's pivot to pop punk.


anonymous 167 days ago

Marty from Zao here. I remember listening to some of these bands once or twice.


anonymous 167 days ago

Over/under on bands dropping when some curious accusations are made is set at 7.5. Reply to place your bets.


anonymous 167 days ago

^^^^^^^ I know someone in a LG band that will book all that action.


anonymous 167 days ago

at least Glassjaw is at the bottom where they belong instead of trying to pass them off as some kind of headliner. Never understood the hype for that band.


anonymous 167 days ago

Gonna be a lot of loads blown, bumps snorted, and careers ended as a result of this fest. Wish it were in Billings so my sister's muff could get us onto Mayday Parade's bus.


anonymous 167 days ago

Trash


anonymous 167 days ago

I would go for MCR


anonymous 167 days ago

There isn't a single hardcore band on this clusterf*ck.


anonymous 167 days ago

What a lame name for a fest. We're Old Now Fest coming 2023 😂


anonymous 167 days ago

Jami Morgan here, who are all of these bands? Can we get some revolutionary sounds like Korn and Slipknot on here? Sid Wilson once said we were good, that should count for something. This festival seems like it's getting a lot of press and I thought our people were buying all the press they could get. Very confusing. Must have blown our budget on buying a Grammy nomination


anonymous 167 days ago

You know your fest is wack when Kittie is the heaviest band on the bill.


anonymous 167 days ago

Make sure you get there early and hit up the Tanner's Pickles foodtruck


anonymous 167 days ago

Flying in from Nuuk, Greenland to see Prentiss, a 14-year-old rapper from Mississippi. Will promptly leave afterword. Can't wait.


anonymous 167 days ago

AFI stands for A Fart Inside. I am both clever and mature.


anonymous 167 days ago

Kittie? Are you f*cking kidding me? Are them and paramore headlining the feminazi stage with whore for war on women hosting the stage?


anonymous 167 days ago

^incels gonna incel


anonymous 167 days ago

i am busting out my coon tails and pink tutu for this. trying to find LEXILU$H and the millionaires in this bitch


anonymous 167 days ago

anonymous 167 days ago

So are the Linda Linda's and Meet Me At The Altar just the new industry indulgence bands? You put these bands nobody listens to on your fest and then people can't call you racist or some shit?


anonymous 167 days ago

Hopefully there'll be a Stephen Paddock reunion


anonymous 167 days ago

Pedophiles are stoked


anonymous 167 days ago

"You put these bands nobody listens to on your fest and then people can't call you racist or some shit?" Those bands have hundreds of thousands of listeners. You retarded or just racist?


anonymous 167 days ago

If they have so many listeners (which you can easily fake and manipulate) why can't they fill up 300 cap rooms when they headline? Memey shit that labels pay to be put on every playlist and get music press to insist how "stunning and brave" it is doesn't change that there's no organic demand for it. There's plenty of "diverse" bands from both the era this fest is harkening back to (we just called them bands then) and the current era, but it's always these 2 that get thrown on everything and it can't be because they draw, because they don't, so it's just to distract from criticism.


anonymous 167 days ago

live nation lol. fees higher than the avg age


anonymous 167 days ago

i dont like half this line up HOWEVER at least they can preform without the music and lyrics playing in the backround unlike EVERY SINGLE RAPPER


anonymous 167 days ago

What a mess. No one wants to remember these bands nor the pathetic genre they play


anonymous 167 days ago

Chris Hansen is stoked.


anonymous 167 days ago

Dudes who went to Furnace Fest will go to this.


anonymous 167 days ago

Just here to laugh at the one guy who always has a meltdown over his crush Scott Vogel


anonymous 167 days ago

There's a Keith Buckley joke in here somewhere...


anonymous 167 days ago

I'd be stoked to see Scott Vogel do vocals for all these bands.


anonymous 167 days ago

No yellowcard no care


anonymous 167 days ago

I'd rather go to Fart fest than this.


anonymous 167 days ago

General admission tickets are $225, with fees it will be over $300


anonymous 167 days ago

It's called "when we were young fest" it's in Las Vegas and the killers aren't playing? Makes sense


anonymous 167 days ago

Since when is Paramore more popular than AFI? Must live in Bizarro World!


anonymous 167 days ago

When we were young?? These fools aren't old.


anonymous 167 days ago

Trump still lost.


anonymous 167 days ago

"So are the Linda Linda's and Meet Me At The Altar just the new industry indulgence bands? You put these bands nobody listens to on your fest and then people can't call you racist or some shit?" no way in hell either of those bands are organic shit is garbage


anonymous 167 days ago

it will be beautiful. the 36 year old scene dude and the 25 year old scene girl will reconnect after banging in the back of a van 10 years ago.


anonymous 167 days ago

Most of these bands have a fan base of either white people with fat arms or registered sex offenders.


anonymous 167 days ago

haha at glassjaw trying to hide all the way down there like we won't notice.


anonymous 167 days ago

Astroworld V2 with eyeliner and scene hair. What a terrible mistake.


anonymous 167 days ago

Thank God, because I can finally see Boys Like Girls


anonymous 167 days ago

Glassjaw is the only good band on the list.


anonymous 167 days ago

Just here to laugh at the one guy who always has a meltdown over his crush Scott Vogel >> Says the guy with a crush on Vogel because he posts about Vogel in every other comments section for a news entry about anything remotely related to hardcore. The only one having a meltdown is you bro. Keep self-projecting loser.


anonymous 167 days ago

Lawyers are stoked for the pending SA charges


anonymous 166 days ago

Mandalay Bay Casino is stoked for this


anonymous 166 days ago

.this fest is for the 21 and under crowd, Exhume GG now!!!


anonymous 166 days ago

The plan is to add another show on Sunday. We'll see if ticket sales are strong enough. There's a big hip-hop fest and throwback rap/R&B fest at same venue, both of which sell out, will be interesting to see if this can do the same. Prolly can.


anonymous 166 days ago

when we were young and people like keith buckley and tim lambesis were not crazypants


anonymous 166 days ago

emo fyre fest


anonymous 166 days ago

Kinda sus that New Found Glory isn't on this


xmyxwarx 165 days ago
