Taste of Chaos-San Bernardino lineup unveiled


When it was announced that Taste of Chaos would be making a triumphant return in 2015, the people behind the once-great music festival decided to keep it as a one-day event in its hometown of San Bernardino, CA. After a successful event, plans were made to take the festival back on the road, after an almost six-year hiatus. Earlier this month, it was announced that the Rockstar Energy Drink Taste of Chaos Tour would hit the road again with its last stop being where it all began; the San Manuel Amphitheater Festival Grounds in San Bernardino.

On Monday (March 28), festival organizers unveiled the list of performers set to take the stage when the festival closes out in mid-July. Previously announced bands Taking Back Sunday, Dashboard Confessional, Saosin, and the Early November will perform during that last show. In addition to the previously announced four acts, bands like Quicksand, the Get Up Kids, the Starting Line, Senses Fail, the Anniversary, Hot Rod Circuit, and Reggie and the Full Effect will all take the stage during that show.

“After seeing the success of last year’s Taste Of Chaos, it was clear that there was a demand for the festival’s return. We’re excited to be able to bring this expanded music lineup to the Southern California show,” said co-founder Kevin Lyman.

“I am so happy to know fans are excited about this lineup, but I know I am the MOST excited. Dashboard Confessional gets to play for our favorite people WITH our favorite people. I cannot imagine a better way to spend the summer,” reveals Dashboard Confessional frontman Chris Carrabba.

Agreeing with their soon-to-be tour mate are Taking Back Sunday who added, “It’s going to be good to be back in the company of so many bands we are both friends with and fans of.”

Taste of Chaos will arrive at the San Manuel Amphitheater Festival Grounds in San Bernardino on July 16. Tickets for the show will go on sale beginning this Friday, April 1 at 10 a.m. PT. The complete list of tour dates for the 2016 Taste of Chaos tour can be seen here.

Say Anything, Saves the Day and Reggie and the Full Effect to Go Out on Huge Tour


Anniversary tours are all the rage now, but what happens when you take three bands who will be celebrating the big anniversaries of their “mainstream success” albums?

One heck of a tour, we think and now know.
