Rise Against, Rancid, Jawbreaker, And Descendents To Headline Inaugural 1234FEST

Heads up! There’s a new punk festival in town and it’s got a pretty impressive lineup. The first-ever 1234FEST will take place in Denver and Philadelphia this September with Rise Against, Rancid, Jawbreaker, and Descendents set to headline.

Other acts appearing on the bill include Joyce Manor, Pussy Riot, and Dillinger Four.

The 1234FEST is being curated by the members of Jawbreaker and their associates. “We wanted to put on the anti-festival, explains Rich Egan of the band’s West Bay Invitational promotional team. ” This isn’t 200 bands on 10 stages. It feels like an insanely stacked lineup you’d see at hall shows back in the day and all of these bands have approached it that way. No egos, no rockstar bullshit.”

He added, “We have an arena headliner, legends and heroes sharing a stage with new blood and a groundbreaking women-powered band. This is punk rock.”

The Denver edition takes place at The JunkYard on September 9th, while the Philadelphia edition goes down on September 23rd at Freedom Mortgage Pavillion. Tickets go on sale Friday, June 23rd at 10 AM local time.
