When We Were Young festival was recently lambasted for its messy ticket sales, with some fans feeling scammed out of $20. The emo and pop-punk festival will be led by My Chemical Romance and Paramore. It will take place at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds on October 22. The Facebook page of the festival went on to share the news that the show was sold out.
The post read: “We are incredibly humbled by the support of this community. When we began working on this concept we had no idea it would get this big. We are working our hardest to make this the best event possible for everyone. With that being said we are officially Sold Out. See you in Vegas!

Fans lash out at When We Were Young Festival
Anthony commented, “So all the resale sites were able to get plenty of tickets and so many of us that waited in that standby room got screwed. This is so messed up!!! Now we don’t get an option for layaway payments if by some miracle tickets become available. Live Nation really does suck!!!”
While Tori commented on the post as well stating: “Wait so people paid 20 bucks to reserve (for a code and didn’t get a code) and didn’t get in? This is so confusing. Or now do you pay to be ON a wait list with no guarantee of even getting a ticket??? Edit: pretty sure this comment has been cleared up???????? 😅”
Due to overwhelming response from the fans, Las Vegas’ stacked When We Were Young festival has added a second date, on Sunday, October 23 and it will feature the Day 1 lineup.
The lineup also features Bring Me the Horizon, A Day to Remember, Avril Lavigne, Bright Eyes, Jimmy Eat World, AFI, the Used, the All American Rejects, Taking Back Sunday, Car Seat Headrest, Dashboard Confessional, Alkaline Trio, Manchester Orchestra, Pierce the Veil, I Prevail and the Story So Far.
