The location of the insanely popular When We Were Young festival is still standing, but it may not be after May. The Las Vegas Fairgrounds has just announced the incredibly stacked Sick New World festival, and the lineup will blow the minds of any nu-metal rocker.
Slated for May 13th 2023, you can catch System of a Down, Korn, Deftones, Incubus, Evanescence, Turnstile, Chevelle, The Sisters of Mercy, Papa Roach, Ministry, Coal Chamber, Spirit Box, Sevendust, Filter, Hoobastank, P.O.D., KMFDM, She Wants Revenge, Orgy, Skinny Puppy, Flyleaf, Mr. Bungle, Placebo, Killing Joke, Soulfly, Kittie, Alien Ant Farm, Lacuna Coil, Melvins, Failure, Stabbing Westward, Cold, Cradle of Filth, Body Count, Monster Magnet, My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult, and many more!
If this sounds too good to be true, it is not. This festival will have multiple stages throughout the venue with bands playing at the same time. With set times being available closer to the show date, we can only imagine the tough choices of who to watch, but we know for sure there are no bad choices with this bountiful lineup. Running hours seem to be 11 a.m. to 12 a.m. so you will definitely be getting your steps in that day.
SICK NEW WORLD
Las Vegas Festival Grounds
May 13, 2023
Headlining the show is System of a Down, which is a major deal on its own. While they did play a handful of dates in CA this year, they very rarely play live, so this alone is reason to attend. Throw in the mega bands Korn and Deftones and you have an amazing show already.
The wide range of presale tickets go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m. but only for US residents. Fans outside the US can sign up via email for the most up-to-date info directly from Sick New World.
