A brand-new festival will take place in the US in 2023, and Blink-182 and Paramore have been revealed as the headliners.
Both acts will head the bill at the Adjacent Music Festival, which will have three stages at Atlantic City Beach and also feature Turnstile, Bleachers, IDLES, Jimmy Eat World, Japanese Breakfast and Coheed And Cambria.
It follows the recent announcement by Tom DeLonge and the original line-up of Blink-182 that they, together with Green Day, will headline the When We Were Young Festival in Las Vegas next year as part of their massive 2023 reunion world tour.
Additionally, a brand-new, full-length studio record is in the works; its specifics have not yet been made public. Last weekend’s WWWYF was headlined by My Chemical Romance and Paramore.
The first day of the 2022 event, which was supposed to feature “an epic line-up of emo and rock bands over the past two decades,” was cancelled owing to weather warnings and ensuing safety concerns. However, day two of the festival went off without a hitch, with spectacular performances by My Chemical Romance and Paramore.
The latter debuted the 2009 song ‘All I Wanted’ live and played the songs ‘Here We Go Again’ from their 2005 debut album ‘All I Know Is Falling’ and ‘Last Hope’ by Paramore for the first time in four years.
MCR, on the other hand, appeared to be alluding to their status as emo pioneers by sporting vintage makeup during the festival. The second weekend of the When We Were Young Festival features a return performance by Paramore, My Chemical Romance and other acts. Then, next October, the event will return to Las Vegas, with the headliners being Blink-182 and Green Day, together with 30 Seconds To Mars, The Offspring, Good Charlotte and Rise Against.
