The Taste of Chaos Festival is back!

After a long five-year wait, the Taste of Chaos Festival will return this year. The day-long festival will be held Saturday, October 3rd at the San Manuel Amphitheater Festival Grounds in San Bernadino, California. This year’s festival will be a very special one for anyone that was a fan of the alternative/indie scene in the 90s and early 2000s because it pays tribute to that scene with a lineup of bands that once made up that scene. They are the same bands that have since gone on to become some of the biggest names in the industry. Those bands include: Jimmy Eat World, The Used, Dashboard Confessional, Thrice, The All-American Rejects, Saves The Day, Glassjaw, The Movielife, Story of the Year, and Finch. Mark Hoppus will perform his own special DJ set at this year’s festival. Greek Fire and Adair will also be on hand for this year’s festival.

The bands tapped for this year’s festival make up just part of its enjoyment. There will also be carnival rides, games, food trucks, and a craft beer and concession area. Those that might be coming from a long distance to see this year’s festival will be glad to know that organizers have also established an on-sight overnight camping area. That means fans can get there the day before and rest up overnight for the big day. All tickets for this year’s festival are general admission. They will go on sale beginning this coming Monday, June 22nd at TasteofChaos.com. Early bird tickets start at $  will go up in price from there. Regular on-sale ticket price is $42.50 per ticket. Ticket prices do not include service fee or parking. A very small number of VIP packages will be available with the cheapest going for $199.00.
