General admission tickets start at $279.99 (£232.93) and GA+ and VIP bundles are also available as well.
In a four-star review of the festival last year, NME‘s Maya Georgi wrote: “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.
The initial incarnation of the festival was in 2017, held at in Santa Ana, California. Last year it was moved to Las Vegas Festival Grounds in Winchester, Nevada.
The first day of the 2022 edition was cancelled due to a high-wind advisory in Nevada, however, the second day went ahead.
