If you’re a fan of “alternative rock” music and are looking for a music festival that’s a little different from the ones the United States has to offer, you might be interested in a brand new festival slated to make its debut later this year.
Earlier today, it was announced that a new music festival named the “Wrecking Ball Festival” will hit Atlanta in August of this year. But before you assume it has to do with Miley Cyrus because of the name, check out the line-up and you’ll see it has nothing to do with the tabloid staple.
Acts like Coheed and Cambria, The Descendents, Glassjaw, The Get Up Kids, the Movielife, Title Fight, and the recently reunited Thrice, will be heading to Atlanta to celebrate the first year of the (hopefully) yearly event. We will admit, we’re a little jealous it’s not happening in our backyard.
Check out the complete list of performers heading “down South” for the festival.
The festival is to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Atlanta’s The Masquerade where a lot of musicians have stopped by to perform at. The event will take place during the weekend of August 8-9.
As the poster points out, two-day passes and VIP tickets will go on sale beginning this Monday, April 6 through Ticketmaster. If you so happen to live in Atlanta and wouldn’t mind the trek to The Masquerade, then tickets can be purchased at the venue’s box office.
Apparently, the festivities will kick off with a punk rock pre-party featuring guests like Greg Hetson (Bad Religion), Eric Melvin (NOFX), and Derek O’Brien (Social Distortion).
The only question now is, where do we sign up?
