Break Out Your Eyeliner and Skinny Jeans for This Festival

Break Out Your Eyeliner and Skinny Jeans for This Festival

Break out the backcomb and hair straighteners, because When We Were Young is coming back to town.

One of the most nostalgia-inducing lineups we've seen since our own Warped Tour days, the festival is basically a full-blown aughts revival that will take over Sin City this fall. And as a celebration of all the emo and alternative icons you know and love, you better believe everyone from My Chemical Romance to Paramore to Bring Me The Horizon to Taking Back Sunday to Avril Lavigne will be taking over the stage for one day only.

However, this wide-range survey of third-wave pop punk and post-hardcore acts will also be accompanied by performances from newer faces such JXDN, The Linda Lindas and Lilhuddy. And even better? When We Were Young probably has one of the most sonically diverse lineups we've seen in a very time, rounded out by appearances from the likes of Bright Eyes, Poppy and TV Girl.

So mark your calendars, lace up your Chucks and secure your spot by signing up at ahead of the special presale, which opens on Friday, January 21 at 10 a.m. PST. Otherwise, you can nab your tickets at 2 p.m. PST, with general admission starting at $224.99, GA+ at $399.99 and VIP (with or without a cabana) at $499.99.

When We Were Young Fest takes place on Saturday, October 22, 2022 at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds. Check out the entire lineup below.
