Where and when does the festival take place?

The When We Were Young festival is scheduled to take place on Saturday, October 22, 2022.

It will be held at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Is the festival legal?

In the wake of the news of the festival and the popular bands that are supposed to play it, some fans online have speculated that When We Were Young could be a repeat of the disastrous Fyre Festival from 2017. .

The Fyre Festival is billed as a luxury music festival that will take place on the Bahamian island of Great Exuma, and will feature performances by Blink 182, Tyga, Pusha T, Lil Yachty and more. It was promoted by social media influencers like Kendall Jenner, Emily Ratajkowski and Hailey Baldwin, and promises luxury villas to stay in and fine dining.

Tickets sell for hundreds or even thousands of dollars, and when festival goers arrive on the island, they quickly realize that the whole thing is just a scam. Billy McFarland, the festival’s founder, was eventually sentenced to six years in prison and ordered to lose $26 million.

Regarding When We Were Young, one person tweeted: “I can’t wait for the fyre: punk version.”

Another wrote: “This will be a weird emoji version of Fyre Festival. 12 hours, three stages, 63 bands. It will be chaotic. “

“The thing that annoys me the most is this No Refund Policy. In this day and age, Covid can really get a festival canceled with a single spike, the fact that it’s this expensive, in just one day, with 60 bands and NO REFUND POLICY MONEY seems stupid and stupid. Straight Fyre Festival Vibes,” another wrote, accompanying a screenshot of the festival’s ticket policy from its website, which states that “all sales are final – no refunds or exchange “.

However, so far there has been nothing to suggest that the festival is illegal, and several performing bands have promoted the event and tickets on Twitter, including My Chemical Romance, Paramore, Jimmy Eat World, AFI and Bring Me The Horizon.
