When We Were Young Festival Adds Second 2023 Date
UPDATE (Feb. 22, 2023): The When We Were Young Festival has just added a second date (Oct. 22) featuring the exact same lineup as the original Oct. 21 event. Hopeful attendees can now register for a pre-sale which will begin on Feb. 24 at 2PM PT. Get more information at the festival website.
With this year's installment of the When We Were Young Festival set to take place in just a couple of weeks, the event's organizers are already looking toward next year, having just announced an impressive 2023 lineup that includes over 50 bands with Blink-182 (now featuring Tom DeLonge) tabbed as the headliner.
Earlier today (Oct. 11), Blink-182 officially announced the return of DeLonge, who left the group in 2015 and had not been featured on a Blink album since 2011's Neighborhoods. There's a new record on the way with an appearance at the When We Were Young Festival being one of dozens on the books amid a 2023 and 2024 world tour.
It's not the only reunion destined for the WWWY stage next year, with Say Anything, Something Corporate and Finch all returning to action at this emo oasis taking place at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds on Oct. 21. Other high profile artists include Green Day, Good Charlotte, Rise Against, Sum 41, Simple Plan, New Found Glory and many more.
See the full lineup directly below.
Look for tickets to go on sale on to the general public Oct. 14 at 2PM PT and fans who sign up for early access at the festival website will have access to the pre-sale starting Oct. 14 at 10AM PT.
