Ladies and gentle-dudes who grew up in the mid-00s, Taste of Chaos is back!
For anyone who grew up during the era of “emo bands,” Taste of Chaos, the sister traveling festival to Warped Tour, was definitely something you wanted to go to. Unlike Warped Tour, TOC concentrated on heavier bands like Avenged Sevenfold, Bullet For My Valentine, Atreyu, and many more.
In 2010, fans of the festival were given the saddening news that it would no longer exist, at least in the United States.
Fast forward five years, and now it has been resurrected from the festival funeral home.
Founder Kevin Lyman had been hinting at a resurrection over the past few weeks, but did not confirm whether the festival would return or if he was just being a troll.
Surprise, it’s back, but with some changes.
Instead of traveling across the country like it had done in the past, Taste of Chaos will stay stationed at the San Manuel Amphitheater Festival Grounds in San Bernardino, CA.
But if its return is not enough to get those dark hearts of yours beating, then the newly announced line-up will do the trick.
Newly reunited Thrice, Jimmy Eat World, The Used, Saves the Day, The All-American Rejects, Dashboard Confessional and more are all slated to hit the stage on Oct. 3.
While the line-up may not be completely heavy, like the past incarnations, it’s nice to see that some veteran TOC bands (Thrice, The Used, Story of the Year) will be featured on the line-up.
Check out the complete line-up below.
