Time Out says

Well, I’m not okay after seeing the lineup for When We Were Young: My Chemical Romance and Paramore top the single-day Las Vegas festival that features just about every emo-pop act from the early 2000s.

Seriously, we’re not kidding: Avril Lavigne, Bright Eyes, Taking Back Sunday, Dashboard Confessional, AFI, the Used, Alkaline Trio, Jimmy Eat World, A Day to Remember, Bring Me the Horizon and more are all set to take over the Las Vegas Festival Grounds on October 22, 23 and 29.

Tickets go on sale Friday, January 21 at 10am, with general admission passes starting at $225 and VIP at $500.

Here’s hoping the almost-sounds-too-good-to-be-true When We Were Young (not to be confused with a sort-of-similar Morrissey-fronted fest from a few years ago) can pull off all of those acts in a single day without major schedule conflicts—we’ll eagerly await the full schedule for the Live Nation-backed event.

Check out the full lineup below, which looks like an angsty middle schooler’s bedroom wall circa 2002.
