The fine folks over at Live Nation have just announced a massive Emo-themed festival that will take place in October in Las Vegas. It also features more bands than you can shake a stick at but why would you do that to some talented musicians anyway. Here is their brief press copy along with the poster. I’ve taken the time to type up the whole list for you in case the poster is a little hard to see on the website.
The Press Release:
Festival to feature epic lineup of emo and rock artists from the past two decades, including My Chemical Romance, Paramore, A Day To Remember, The Used, Taking Back Sunday, Avril Lavigne, Dashboard Confessional, Jimmy Eat World, Alkaline Trio, The All American Rejects and dozens more.
