War on Women mysteriously left off the bill. ENABLE THE COMMENTS THINK OF THE FAMILIES lol
Marty from Zao here. I remember listening to some of these bands once or twice.
Over/under on bands dropping when some curious accusations are made is set at 7.5. Reply to place your bets.
^^^^^^^ I know someone in a LG band that will book all that action.
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.
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.
There isn't a single hardcore band on this clusterf*ck.
What a lame name for a fest. We're Old Now Fest coming 2023 😂
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
You know your fest is wack when Kittie is the heaviest band on the bill.
Make sure you get there early and hit up the Tanner's Pickles foodtruck
Flying in from Nuuk, Greenland to see Prentiss, a 14-year-old rapper from Mississippi. Will promptly leave afterword. Can't wait.
AFI stands for A Fart Inside. I am both clever and mature.
Kittie? Are you f*cking kidding me? Are them and paramore headlining the feminazi stage with whore for war on women hosting the stage?
i am busting out my coon tails and pink tutu for this. trying to find LEXILU$H and the millionaires in this bitch
I CANT BELEEVE THE TURNSTILED KIDZ ARE NOT ONNN THIS FESVTIBAL AND ADVIL LAVERNE IS I HEARED ON ENTERTIAMNENMT TONITE IWTH MARTY HART THAT AEREOA LATTRINE HADD A SEX TAPEP WITH TRAVIW BIKER ANDD IT GOT STOLED OUT IF THEYRE SAFE AND NOW HULA IS DONG A MOVIE ABGUT ITT
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?
"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?
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.
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
What a mess. No one wants to remember these bands nor the pathetic genre they play
Just here to laugh at the one guy who always has a meltdown over his crush Scott Vogel
I'd be stoked to see Scott Vogel do vocals for all these bands.
General admission tickets are $225, with fees it will be over $300
It's called "when we were young fest" it's in Las Vegas and the killers aren't playing? Makes sense
Since when is Paramore more popular than AFI? Must live in Bizarro World!
"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
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.
Most of these bands have a fan base of either white people with fat arms or registered sex offenders.
haha at glassjaw trying to hide all the way down there like we won't notice.
Astroworld V2 with eyeliner and scene hair. What a terrible mistake.
Thank God, because I can finally see Boys Like Girls
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.
.this fest is for the 21 and under crowd, Exhume GG now!!!
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.
when we were young and people like keith buckley and tim lambesis were not crazypants
Kittie is on this? I am going to drive no less than 600 miles to this.
