The first Sad Summer Fest took place last year. The highly anticipated lineup and tour dates were announced this afternoon, so it looks like the cross-country festival is continuing in 2020.
Last year, the tour stopped in Minneapolis at Myth Live, bringing with it a wide range of talented artists from all over the country. Three interchanging headliners, Mayday Parade, State Champs, and The Maine shared the stage, with smaller (but definitely amazing) bands such as Just Friends and Stand Atlantic as openers.
Headlining the festival this year is Baltimore’s All Time Low. If you were any ounce of emo in high school, you probably listened to these guys. They’re the perfect nostalgic headliner for a festival that is newer but had great success in its first year.
If you haven’t kept up with them in recent years, no worries, I’ve got your back. All Time Low is set to release a new album, Wake Up Sunshine, in April. They’ve already dropped two incredible singles for it, which you can listen to here.
With a bright and sunny vibe overtaking their upcoming album, no band is better to headline a summer festival.
Though there is not a date in Minnesota this year (boo!) you can still enjoy the festival in other places nearby, like Milwaukee, WI on August 15.
General admission tickets go on sale Friday! Get them here.
Let’s get sad!
