All Time Low, The Story So Far, the Maine + More Team Up for Sad Summer Fest Tour 2020
Emos unite! All Time Low are headlining the second Sad Summer Festival tour. The trek will set out across North America with The Story So Far, Movements, The Maine and a few other likeminded acts in tow.
It all kicks off July 17 in Sacramento, California, as the Sad Summer Fest makes its way down the coast, across the country, into Canada and back. The rock-fueled package tour wraps things up a month later in Milwaukee on Aug. 15. In addition to the bands mentioned above, Yours Truly, Grayscale and Destroy Boys also are along for the ride. See the tour dates down toward the bottom of this post.
"Rock n Roll summer camp just hits a little bit different when you're with your friends," All Time Low frontman Alex Gaskarth offered. "This tour is going to be something special, something we've all been chasing. Can't fucking wait."
Pre-sale tickets for the eighteen-city summer bash go on sale starting Tuesday (Feb. 25) at noon PT. Remaining concert tickets will be available beginning this Friday (Feb. 28) at 9 AM PT. For more information, check out the Sad Summer Festival site or All Time Low's internet outpost.
The tour news follows the revelation that All Time Low's upcoming album Wake Up, Sunshine is considered somewhat of a throwback after the Last Young Renegade era. The Note to Scene podcast explored that concept and what it means for the boys in the band to grow up on its latest episode.
