The Desert Scene: When We Were Young Festival

Fans of pop-punk, emo, metalcore, hardcore and post-hardcore bands from the 1990's and 2000's have been excited by news of a resurrected When We Were Young music festival - moving this time from California to Las Vegas and scheduled by concert giant Live Nation Entertainment. But, as excited as many of the genre's fans are, it's not generating as much love as some would think. Set for late-October 2022, the festival that boasts 65 bands is stirring up a hornets nest on social media. Brayan Mendoza and Bonnie G share their concerns about the festival on this edition of The Desert Scene.
