About The Event

Sad Summer Festival 2023 Presented by Journeys and Converse will make its fourth trek across the US. This summer’s lineup features daily sets from some of the tour’s returning veterans as well as marks the debut of other artists to the tour.

Making their Sad Summer Fest debut, Taking Back Sunday is set to headline this year’s festival in its entirety.

“We’re very excited to get back on the road. It’s going to be great spending the summer playing shows with old friends and making new ones. Most of all, we can not wait to start playing these new songs for everyone!” – John Nolan of Taking Back Sunday

The Maine will make their return to Sad Summer Fest – having been a part of two previous summers – including the inaugural year of the fest back in 2019.

“For some reason the past year has felt like one long winter to me. Not that I haven’t enjoyed the hibernation, but I think it’s time my body absorbed some vitamin D and my ears devoured some Taking Back Sunday. And the very best place for both of those things will be at Sad Summer ’23. So crawl out of that cave, apply the zinc oxide and let’s f**king rip.” – John O’Callghan of The Maine
