Festival organizers recently announced more bands to its lineup, which was partially unveiled last year. Other headliners include Smashing Pumpkins and Run The Jewels. My Chemical Romance were originally scheduled to headline, but the band postponed their 2021 plans. Luckily, the band will be back to headline the festival next year.
New additions to the lineup include Mr. Bungle, DEVO, NOFX, Dinosaur Jr., and Motion City Soundtrack. Many of the acts announced last year will return this year, including Alex G, PUP, Taking Back Sunday, Best Coast, Les Savy Fav, Sublime With Rome, New Found Glory, Thursday, White Lung, KennyHoopla, Fishbone, Fucked Up, Meet Me @ The Altar, Lupe Fiasco and Vic Mensa. More acts will be announced next week.
