There's a new traveling punk festival in town.
The cleverly titled "Sad Summer Festival" is set to hit 15+ cities this summer, featuring a rotating lineup of artists. The top bands featured on the tour will be State Champs, Mayday Parade, The Maine, The Wonder Years, Mom Jeans, Stand Atlantic, Just Friends, and L.I.F.T, with appearances in select cities by Four Year Strong, Set It Off, Forever The Sickest Kids, Emo Nite, or Every Avenue.
In years past, these bands would have been on the Vans Warped Tour. However, the Warped Tour announced 2018 would be their last year before scheduling a handful of special shows in 2019 in honor of the traveling festival's 25th anniversary. In its place, the Sad Summer Festival hopes to provide a similar outlet for up-and-coming bands that pop-punk and alt-rock fans won't want to miss.
The newly announced concerts are scheduled to begin in July and extend into August. See the ticket links below for the specific lineup on each date.
