What's the age limit for When We Were Young Festival 2022?

When We Were Young Festival 2022 features a killer line-up that will whisk you back to the 2000s, but what’s the age limit? It’s time to let your inner emo out.

Name some of the biggest emo, pop rock, and alt rock artists of the past 20 years and When We Were Young 2022 probably has them.

The likes of My Chemical Romance, Paramore, and Bring Me The Horizon are scheduled to take the stage at Las Vegas Festival Grounds on 22 October 2022.

Pre-sale tickets will be released on Friday, 21 January at 10am PT – fans can sign up for the code now.

Before you get too excited, though, read on to find out whether you meet the entry age requirement.

When We Were Young Festival 2022: Age limit and ticket prices

Now, relax. There is no age limit! When We Were Young is open to all ages, although you need to be 21 or over to buy VIP Cabana tickets.

There are downsides to such a packed line-up

There will be more than 60 beloved emo and alt rock acts on the bill but that’s not necessarily all good news. Due to take place on 22 October, the festival will run for 12 hours, from 11am to 11pm.

With three stages, that means there will be about 20 acts on each stage and each act will get about 36 minutes of stage time.

Don’t forget about switch-over and preparation, which we predict will take about ten minutes, minimising precious performance time.

That’s a lot to squeeze in when you consider big acts such as My Chemical Romance and Paramore have countless hits you’ll want to hear.

However, one fan says stacked concerts often use spinning stages, so there’s no set up time. Say goodbye to the bathroom breaks, though!

Let your inner emo kid out

The festival is sure to unite adults who went through a teenage phase of dark clothes, black make-up and long swoopy hair. Some of the memes plastered on Twitter hours after the line-up announcement are hilarious.

Please can there be a dress code like this? It would be the ultimate throwback.
