No doubt you’ve probably seen the news today about When We Were Young: a brand new festival going down in Las Vegas on Saturday, 22nd October with a lineup that’s ripped straight out of your mid-late 2000’s Limewire downloads folder.
Headlining the monstrously nostalgic event is My Chemical Romance and Paramore, with the bands being joined by Bring Me The Horizon, Avril Lavigne, A Day To Remember, Bright Eyes, Jimmy Eat World, AFI – do I need to go on?
It’s a bloody stacked lineup of emo, pop-punk and hardcore favs that’s seen the internet respond accordingly. Check out some of the best fan reactions to the new Live Nation fezzy below.

I love that they have Knocked Loose at When we were Young. Truly giving us the 2005 experience of seeing a bunch of dudes in The Used hoodies and who don’t understand what’s about to happen get kicked unconscious by hardcore kids wearing Paramore merch.
