When We Were Young is an upcoming music festival that is scheduled to take place in 2022. The festival will be held at Las Vegas Festival Grounds and Winchester, Nevada. This will be the first time that the festival has ever been held in Nevada.
30 Seconds To Mars
The When We Were Young Festival of 2023 was a resounding success in the year before.
There were more than 50 bands on the bill, including the headliners Green Day, Blink-182 and Yellowcard.
With more than three days to go, organizers are already looking ahead to next year. They have also announced a series of sideshows and special concerts for October 21.
Blink-182 will be back together again in time for the festival. The group is currently on tour, kicking off in North America before hitting Australia and Europe.
Tom DeLonge hasn’t been in the band since the release of Dogs Eating Dogs in 2012. The group recently released a new single, Edging, and a new album.
Thirty Seconds to Mars have also been tapped to headline the upcoming When We Were Young Festival. This isn’t the first time the quartet has performed in Las Vegas.
Their third studio album, This Is War, was released in 2009. It was the most successful of the quartet’s albums to date, spawning a slew of chart topping hits and a pair of platinum selling singles.
When We Were Young Festival was originally scheduled to take place on October 22 at Las Vegas Festival Grounds. It was to feature over sixty bands.
Unfortunately, it was canceled because of the weather. However, it was still a memorable day for many fans.
The festival was billed as the ultimate emo rock festival. But even with a stellar lineup, the event was plagued by issues.
Some of the bands, such as Knocked Loose, were cancelled, while other artists, such as The Wonder Years, were forced to cancel their performances.
Fortunately, the festival’s second day did not suffer the same fate. Dashboard Confessional performed on the Pink Stage. They had no audio for the first half of the set.
Despite this, the band delivered a very powerful performance, bringing back memories with their songs.
My Chemical Romance
If you were into the emo scene in the late ’90s and early ‘aughts, you know what I’m talking about.
The event was called the When We Were Young festival, and it was a high-octane, high-brow mashup of emo, pop, hip-hop, and rock and roll.
A total of 65 bands and artists made the cut, including Bring Me the Horizon, My Chemical Romance, and L.S. Dunes.
As for the actual event itself, it was cancelled due to poor weather conditions.
This year’s incarnation is on the books, though it’s scheduled for October 22 at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds. Earlier in the year, it was a home for Day N Vegas.
Besides the usual suspects, the lineup also includes the likes of Alex G (of the Red Hot Chili Peppers) and ‘no-frills’ acts like the Red Hot Boys and the Killers.
In addition, the organizers are offering a bevy of hotel packages and VIP cabanas. Also read: Neil Young Not Performing At Farm Aid 2022 Festival
When We Were Young Festival is a two-day music festival held in Las Vegas that features many acts from the early 2000s.
It was originally announced as a single day event, but eventually it turned into a two-day festival.
The first day of the event was cancelled due to weather conditions, but the second day was still planned.
When We Were Young was a nostalgia-filled emo-punk fest. It featured dozens of bands, both old and new.
Avril Lavigne was a major draw for the event, and her band performed to a large crowd.
She had strong vibes and a great stage presence. They played songs from her 2009 breakthrough album Homesick.
Other popular acts included Blink-182 and Green Day. There was even a surprise appearance from Martin Johnson from Boys Likes Girls.
The When We Were Young festival has been canceled on the grandest of scales. The three day fest is set to feature music acts from the likes of Sum 41 and 30 Seconds to Mars.
Organizers were reportedly advised of the event’s demise by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) in the early hours of the morning.
On the bright side, organizers said that the event will be rescheduled for the Sunday following the mainstays.
It should be noted that the festival was originally scheduled for October 22.
As a result, the aforementioned granddaddy of all events will now be a wet one.
That, and the fact that this year’s crop of musical talent is already a wet one, is no doubt a boon to the organizers.
