The Debut Lineup For When We Were Young Festival Is An Emo Kid’s Wet Dream

Written by Tom Williams on February 8, 2017

The first-ever When We Were Young Festival in Santa Ana, California has revealed its debut lineup, and it is legit wet dream material for emo kids everywhere.

Going down this April, the inaugural When We Were Young Festival will feature a bunch of ’90s and early-’00s punk and emo outfits, including AFI, Descendents, Taking Back Sunday, Alkaline Trio and The Get Up Kids.

Oh, and the whole thing will be headlined by The Smiths’ frontman and OG sad boy, Morrissey.

There are a few more contemporary acts on the lineup as well, like FIDLAR, Cage The Elephant, Silversun Pickups, Foxygen and Beach Fossils, as well as singer-songwriter and producer Mount Eerie, for some reason.

Disappointingly, as SPIN points out, only five of the 35 bands on the roster feature women. Catch the full lineup, below.

When We Were Young 2017 takes place on the 8th and 9th April at the Santa Ana Observatory.
