Self Help Fest launched its first installment in 2014 in San Bernardino, California alongside acts such as Bring Me The Horizon, Of Mice & Men, The Story So Far, Memphis May Fire, Atilla, the Word Alive and many, many more. They later followed it up with a northeast date in Philadelphia that same year.

ADTR frontman Jeremy McKinnon later explained how the idea for the festival came together after a conversation with his girlfriend.

“She told me that the most people who come [to our shows] respond like it’s more than just a concert to them,” he said. “It’s like the music is genuinely helping them. Thus, we titled our festival Self Help, because at the end of the day that’s what music’s all about.”

Over the course of its history, the festival has featured quite impressive lineups including a reunited Underoath in 2015. At the time, Aaron Gillespie explained why this festival was a good fit.

“It was offered to us. It’s such a rad festival and it seems like a lot of the bands that have come up after us are playing it. I feel like it’s just a great place to get everyone together. A Day To Remember started in the same town that Underoath started in, so I think it’s going to be dope. I’m really excited.”
