[1/18/22]: When We Were Young, a new music festival due to take place on October 22nd, 2022 at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds in Las Vegas, NV, is giving Millennials some serious middle school nostalgia with its inaugural lineup.
The Live Nation-produced event will be headlined by My Chemical Romance and Paramore (in its first live show since 2018). The one-day event will also feature a who’s who of early-2000s emo and alternative staples including My Chemical Romance, Paramore, AFI, The Used, Bring Me The Horizon, Avril Lavigne, Bright Eyes, Jimmy Eat World, Taking Back Sunday, Dashboard Confessional, Alkaline Trio, Manchester Orchestra, A Day To Remember, The All American Rejects, Car Seat Headrest, Atreyu, The Story So Far, The Starting Line, and more.
Oddly enough, the lineup for When We Were Young—an event seemingly named for The Killers‘ “When You Were Young”—does not feature The Killers, the Las Vegas-native, early-2000s post-punk/pop-rock stalwarts who have continued to enjoy mainstream success into the present day.
A pre-sale sign-up window is now open via the When We Were Young festival website. Pre-sale will begin on Friday, January 21st at 10:00 a.m. here.
