Las Vegas emo/pop punk festival When We Were Young had to cancel its first one-day edition due to a high wind warning, but the second planned edition went down on Sunday (10/23), and it seems like it was a success. The Festive Owl, the popular social media account about festival news, rumors, and more, attended and called it "one of the single best festival days I’ve personally ever experienced." They also added, "My Chemical Romance could headline any festival in America with that #WhenWeWereYoung set. That was a serious rock show from a well-oiled and polished band."
In addition to My Chemical Romance, the other co-headliner was Paramore, whose Hayley Williams addressed the first day's cancellation on stage during their set. "I know that this weekend got off to a rocky start, and I know it wasn't a particularly popular decision to everyone out there, but I wanna say that it means a lot that the festival is looking out for all of our safety."
