Inaugural Wrecking Ball Fest Revise Line-Up Time Slots

Ever wish you had the power to change a music festival’s schedule just because certain artists that you would like to see play at the same exact time?

This seems to be one of the biggest issues with music festivals that have line-up that feature great artists, but a crazy scheduling process.

As much as you complain about the time slots conflicting, festivals and their organizers really don’t care and in a way tell you to take it or leave it.

Well, as it turns out, there is a music festival out there that has taken the attendees complaints to heart and decided to change their daily schedule.

Wrecking Ball revealed today an updated daily schedule after listening to fans complain about the time slots conflicting.

Why would you have both main stage performance times start and end at the same time? Same for the other two stages.

It looks like the Atlanta festival decided it would be wise to change the times on the schedule so concert goers can at least see 15 minutes of the main bands later in the evening.

Check out the newly revised daily schedule below.

The Wrecking Ball Festival will hit Atlanta during the weekend of Aug. 8-9. The festival is in honor of Atlanta concert venue, The Masquerade, celebrating its 25th anniversary.

Taste of Chaos Tour Resurrected

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.

TASTE OF CHAOS 2015 LINE-UP:

Jimmy Eat World
The Used
Dashboard Confessional

Glassjaw

Tickets for Taste of Chaos are scheduled to go on sale beginning Monday (June 22) on their official website which has yet to formally launch. Tickets start at $25 and for those are into camping, the festival will be offering accommodations for that.

Inaugural Wrecking Ball Festival Reveal Complete Line-Up

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?
