LAS VEGAS, NV (CelebrityAccess) – Alt-rock and emo loving music fans were left dumbfounded with Live Nation’s announcement of the “When We Were Young” festival. The one-day festival features some of the most quintessential emo and rock acts of the past two decades.
When We Were Young will take place October 22 at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds and will feature bands like Bring Me Like the Horizon, Pierce the Veil, Wolf Alice, Avril Lavigne, Ice Nine Kills, A Day to Remember, the used, Taking Back Sunday, and Sleeping with Sirens. Sitting atop that festival poster is none other than Paramore and emo poster boys, My Chemical Romance (MCR).
Once news of the announcement hit Twitter, the bands playing in the festival followed suit with tweets of their own. Social media accounts lit-up as fans both rejoice the announcement and question its validity.
