UPDATED: Due to overwhelming demand, Las Vegas’ stacked When We Were Young festival has now added a third date on Saturday, Oct. 29.
The third date will feature the same lineup as the first two days, Oct. 22 and 23, except that Alex G will replace Wolf Alice and La Dispute will not be performing. The first two dates have both sold out. Led by My Chemical Romance and Paramore, the emo and pop-punk festival will be held at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds.
Recalling the heyday of Warped Tour, the lineup also features Bring Me the Horizon, A Day to Remember, Avril Lavigne, Bright Eyes, Jimmy Eat World, AFI, the Used, the All American Rejects, Taking Back Sunday, Car Seat Headrest, Dashboard Confessional, Alkaline Trio, Manchester Orchestra, Pierce the Veil, I Prevail and the Story So Far.
Presented by Live Nation, When We Were Young marks Paramore’s first performance in four years, as singer Hayley Williams announced a couple months ago that the band would return in 2022. Meanwhile, My Chemical Romance recently reunited after a six-year breakup, which lasted from 2013 until 2019. Gerard Way and Co. have since played in Los Angeles, Australia, New Zealand and Japan, but the band was forced to postpone its North American and European tours due to COVID-19.
Rounding out the lineup are Dance Gavin Dance, 30H!3, the Ready Set, Jxdn, Wolf Alice, La Dispute, the Wonder Years, Mayday Parade, Boys Like Girls, Hawthorne Heights, Meet Me at the Altar, the Maine, We the Kings, Mom Jeans, Poppy, Silverstein, the Starting Line, State Champs, Motionless In White, Prentiss and the Linda Lindas, who made headlines for their library performance of “Racist, Sexist Boy.”
The presale begins at 10 a.m. PT on Jan. 31 for fans who sign up for early access at the festival’s website.
