Jimmy Eat World will headline Chain Fest tomorrow in Irvine, CA, the first rock festival in Irvine since the pandemic. Irvine has a history with rock festivals, with the Weenie Roast taking place in Irvine most years until Irvine Meadows was torn down in 2016.
Nearly two years in the making, renowned punk venue Chain Reaction and Live Nation Entertainment are thrilled to finally bring Chain Fest back to Southern California. The festival will storm through Irvine’s FivePoint Amphitheatre on Saturday, October 23rd, 2021. For more information, please visit: http://www.chainfest.co/.
The festival first surfaced in 2016 and was originally slated to return in 2020. It will make its highly anticipated comeback later this month with help from the newly announced line up including: Jimmy Eat World, Taking Back Sunday, Circa Survive, Mayday Parade, Anberlin, Cartel, Envy On The Coast, and Acceptance.
In 2019 Live Nation Entertainment announced a strategic partnership with the legendary venue. Now they’re looking to bring Chain Reaction’s punk personality to a larger stage with the reemergence of Chain Fest. Limited tickets are available now.
