Goldenvoice announces new Vegas rock fest, When We Were Young

When We Were Young is coming to Las Vegas in October!! The lineup just got announced and can I just say, wow!! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a lineup this amazing and jam-packed with talent!! It’s full of all our favorite throwback, teenage nostalgia bands, with headliners My Chemical Romance, Paramore and support by AFI, The Used, Bring Me the Horizon, Taking Back Sunday, A Day To Remember, Pierce the Veil, Sleeping with Sirens, Knocked Loose, Avril Lavigne, Motionless in White, Black Veil Brides, Ice Nine Kills, Palaye Royale, The All American Rejects, Atreyu, Silverstein, Lilhuddy, Nessa Barrett, Jimmy Eat World and so many more. My inner “it’s not a phase mom!” emo middle schooler was screaming when I saw this lineup.

I can’t believe I have the chance to see all my favorite bands on the same day!!

My favorite band growing up was My Chemical Romance and I was so heartbroken when they announced they broke up in 2013 — I thought I would never be able to see them! The band luckily reunited in late 2019 and announced they were going to be doing both an international and US tour in 2020. But, due to the pandemic, the tours had to be postponed. They were only able to get one show in before they had to reschedule everything, so now I (and so many other emo kids) will finally be able to see My Chemical Romance at We Were Young Fest!

Some bands playing at this fest already have announced some tours they are going on together, as well. The Trinity of Terror Tour includes Black Veil Brides, Motionless in White and Ice Nine Kills… a perfect combination for all us horror lovers. The upcoming European leg of Survival Horror Tour with Bring Me the Horizon and A Day to Remember unfortunately just got postponed due to the pandemic, but at least we’ll be able to see these bands together in Vegas later this year!

A couple of my favorite Tiktok-ers turned singers will also be performing at When We Were Young Fest. Artists Lilhuddy and Nessa Barrett will be making their music festival debut later this year. Lilhuddy took to Instagram to say, “This is a huge day, because I get to announce the first festival I will ever perform at in my entire life. I couldn’t be more ready to rock!” This is definitely the perfect festival to make their debut at!

I will be counting down the days until this amazing fest comes to the Las Vegas Fairgrounds on October 22, 2022. This festival is one day only and I can already tell it’s going to be one of the best days of my life! You can register now for the pre-sale that starts on Friday, January 21st at 10am PST at or by visiting the links below.
