It’s Not Dead Festival Coming to Southern California Next Month


Those of us at the Emo At Heart HQ on the East Coast are very, very jealous right now. Vans Warped Tour mastermind Kevin Lyman, along with a few business-mates have put together a new event, and it looks AMAZING. It’s Not Dead brings you back to where the Vans Warped Tour started — punk bands and the extreme sports world. With bands like Goldfinger, Less Than Jake, The Vandals, NOFX, The Bouncing Souls, and Bad Religion just to name a few, there are sure to be plenty of plane tickets being purchased and cross country trips planned.

For many of us, lineups like this are what VWT was every Summer, along with avoiding collisions with extreme sports athletes like Rick Thorne and Steve Caballero while running between stages. This is the festival’s first year and we’re hoping it’s success will lead to something more like Riot Fest, where there will be additional locations added (note to Mr. Lyman, we here at EAH would LOVE to have this festival visit the East Coast). If you’re near San Bernardino you MUST go check this out!

And if you do go, feel free to hit us up and let us know how it was!
