In case you’ve been sleeping under a rock without any WiFi, we’re pretty sure you’ve heard that the first-ever Rockstar Disrupt Fest has officially begun. Featuring acts like The Used, Thrice, Circa Survive, The Story So Far and plenty others, the brand new festival has been off to a hot start.
And now with everything in full swing, we thought we might remind some you who have yet to buy tickets why you should definitely attend the Warped Tour and Mayhem Fest-like gathering.
To check out the five reasons why we think you should make it to Disrupt Fest this summer, be sure to see below. Afterward, to grab tickets, head here.
With a lineup featuring The Used, Circa Survive, Thrice, The Story So Far, Sum 41, Sleeping With Sirens, Memphis May Fire, Atreyu, Andy Black and a ton more, what’s there not to like? Not to mention, when you get all these talented artists together in the same setting, who knows what might happen. Maybe Kellin Quinn will do a guest feature during The Used’s “A Box Full Of Sharp Objects.” Oh wait, that’s already happened…
Support Your Scene
It’s important to remember how significant it is to support this musical scene. If you’re bummed the Vans Warped Tour is over, don’t just sit on your couch and mope. Get out, go to shows like Disrupt Fest and prove the scene you love has an actual pulse. Without people like you attending these shows, there will only be less and less like it moving forward.
The First of Its Kind
This might be pretty obvious but there’s only one chance to say you attended the first of something. Don’t be that person five, ten or even 15 years from now kicking yourself for not making it out to the first-ever Disrupt Fest. We know we’re bummed we missed the inaugural Taste Of Chaos.
Look, you can only watch every episode of The Office so many times without getting bored. Why not get out of the house during your summer break and go see a show? Better yet, how about you see multiple shows all happening on the same day at Disrupt Fest?
Rediscover Some Of Your Old Favorite Bands
This one goes to all the readers whose last Warped Tour may have been back in 2010. It’s okay, we get it. Life comes at you fast and not all of us have been able to prioritize going to shows like others. So that said, why not get out to Disrupt Fest and enjoy some of the nostalgia thanks in part to The Used, Thrice, Circa Survive, Atreyu, Memphis May Fire and Sleeping With Sirens. Who knows, maybe they’ll play some new music you didn’t realize you loved until just now.
In case those five reasons weren’t convincing enough – which we’re pretty confident they were – make sure to check out some recent photos from Disrupt Fest below thanks to Noise contributor Aaron Berkshire.
