My Chemical Romance, Jimmy Eat World, Simple Plan, Coheed and Cambria to Play Classic Albums at When We Were Young Festival 2024

The Used, All American Rejects, Pierce the Veil, A Day to Remember and more will also perform

We've come a long way since 2022, when it wasn't entirely clear if Las Vegas's When We Were Young festival was even going to happen. This year's fest wrapped up without issue in October, and so organizers are already hot on making next year's edition sick as hell.

WWWY 2024's lineup dropped earlier today, and it looks like we're leaning even further on nostalgia because participating bands are largely billed to perform full-album sets of their classics. The event is set to take place at Las Vegas Festival Grounds on October 19 — making this whopping lineup a one-day affair (for now).

My Chemical Romance are headlining with The Black Parade, with Jimmy Eat World doing Bleed American, Simple Plan doing No Pads, No Helmets … Just Balls, Coheed and Cambria doing Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Dashboard Confessional doing Dusk and Summer, Pierce the Veil doing Collide with the Sky, A Day to Remember doing Homesick, the Used doing In Love and Death, and many, many others.

Two bands will seemingly be doing whatever they feel like, with second headliners Fall Out Boy leading the charge on free-balling the fest in addition to L.S. Dunes doing whatever L.S. Dunes do.

Festival passes enter presale on Friday, November 17, at 10 a.m. PT. See more details at the WWWY website, and check out the full list of bands on the second slide of the Instagram post below.
