It’s hard to escape those pop-punk and emo phases, and on Tuesday, many people had instant flashbacks to their high school days with the reveal of the When We Were Young festival. Co-headlined by My Chemical Romance and Paramore, the one-day event, which takes place on October 22 at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds, features a slew of bands plastered in various Spotify playlists, including Taking Back Sunday, Hawthorne Heights, and Jimmy Eat World.
With so many acts on the festival, there are some bands many people wanted to see that didn’t make the cut. While we don’t know if these five acts were asked to perform, they would’ve been a sight to see during the one-day event. Head here to sign up for pre-sale tickets, which go on sale this Friday (January 21) at 10 a.m. PST. Tickets will go on sale to the general public this Friday at 2 p.m. PST.
Santa Barbara pop-punk group Sugarcult took over the radio with hits such as “Bouncing Off The Walls”, “Do It Alone,” and “Pretty Girl (The Way).” Following some sporadic performances in 2011, the band have been keeping quiet, but they still have an active social media presence. The band’s last studio album was 2006’s Lights Out.
