Sad Summer Festival is excited to announce their 2024 lineup as the event looks to celebrate its 5-Year anniversary. Originally launched in 2019 by some of the artists and industry folks lamenting the loss of the long-running Vans Warped Tour, Sad Summer was the first major event to emerge in the wake of Vans Warped Tour’s end. Initially serving as a way for the community to continue to come together, Sad Summer has grown significantly each year becoming a scene staple and contributing to its reemergence over the past four years. The nationwide run features festival founders Mayday Parade and The Maine along with The Wonder Years, We The Kings, Real Friends, Knuckle Puck, & Daisy Grenade on all dates with support coming from The Summer Set, Hot Milk, Diva Bleach, Daisy Grenade, and Like Roses on select shows.

"For most of my adult life, I’ve associated the summer with music festivals; their open-air venues, the mix of tour bus exhaust and heat radiating off asphalt, and, of course, hearing my favorite music at twilight, lit by the flicker of fireflies - Sad Summer epitomizes this experience. It also serves as a unifying force in our music scene, a place for every emo kid to gather around, connect with fellow fans, and truly be themselves. With this in mind, it is a deep honor to close Sad Summer; the music we've poured our hearts and souls into becoming an indelible part of those warm summer nights, where friends and memories are made.” – Alex Garcia of Mayday Parade

 “A lot can change in four summers. And for me, a lot has. But a constant throughout the peaks and valleys of the last four summers has been my love for playing music loudly, seeing old faces and making new amigos. This marks the 5th anniversary of the Sad Summer Festival, and I couldn’t dream up a better place to rip gigs and see smiling people lose their heads. But the real question at hand is…Corn dogs or nah?” – John O’Callaghan of The Maine
