News of the nostalgia-marketed festival came in the wake of the inaugural When We Were Young, which last year showcased veteran emo and pop-punk bands in Las Vegas.
NME‘s Maya Georgi wrote in a four-star review: “It takes a lot to live up to the hype and pull off what many thought was impossible, but as fans head back into the desert in their checkered vans with wide smiles across their faces, it’s safe to say the emo fest was not only a party for those desiring nostalgia but proof positive of a more inclusive post-punk future.”
Meanwhile in Slipknot news, frontman Corey Taylor recently revealed that he began releasing solo music as he felt he wasn’t getting the credit he deserved for writing with his two bands.
In a three-star review of ‘CMF2’, NME said the record was a “fascinating insight into the dichotomy that drives one of the greatest bands of the 21st Century”.
