You can never have too many summer music festivals.
Sad Summer is the latest, bringing fans rock bands The Maine and Mayday Parade as headliners--including at City National Grove in Anaheim on Saturday, Aug. 3. Pre-sales are underway now, while the general on-sale begins Friday, April 5, at 10 a.m. local time right here on AXS.
"This tour is about putting aside our differences and coming together as a community of people to enjoy music and art," Mayday Parade's Derek Sanders said. "I’m thrilled to be a part of it and I can’t wait to see everyone out there."
The festival will ultimately make its way through 17 cities total, kicking off in early July and ending with the show in Anaheim. It will also include interactive activities, exclusive merchandise, and more to be announced in the coming months. Organizers are also committed to giving back and will announce a national non-profit partner. They will also work with local organizations in each city.
Sad Summer isn't the only thing on the schedule for The Maine--the band will also spend part of their summer opening for Taking Back Sunday, who is celebrating their 20th anniversary as a band. As for Mayday Parade, they continue to be a staple at Emo Night events, where fans gather to enjoy the angsty music of their teen years.
