Stone Sour is recognized for their insane live performances at tours and festivals all over the world. Their singles Inhale and Get Inside have been nominated Best Metal Performance during the Grammy Awards, and yet they continue to slay it with chart-topping rock hits.
All Time Low has released seven albums, and they’ve managed to earn five Top 10 debut spots on the world-famous Billboard Top 200 charts. They’ve also earned no less than 5 Alternative Press Music Awards, won Best Pop Punk Band during the Top In Rock Awards, and no less than 5 more KERRANG! Awards along the way. Dropkick Murphys are just as big as they were two decades ago. With more than 6 million albums sold worldwide, they still know how to rock it out and will do so at the festival for your delight. Dashboard Confessional will also be making an appearance, performing an exclusive set from their album, The Places You Have Come To Fear The Most; plus other popular favorites.
