We know the Maine’s 8123 Fest is still three months away, but we honestly couldn’t be more excited. Plus, it keeps getting better as the band just announced the next act added to the roster.
The Maine hinted at the second edition of the festival at the start of the year and confirmed it this summer. We know the event takes place over three days—January 18, 19 and 20, 2019—in Phoenix, Arizona. However they’ve been pretty mum on the lineup until last month when it was revealed We The Kings and This Century were joining the Maine for the festival.
On Jan. 18, the Maine will perform a set curated by fans at the Van Buren. More information regarding the voting process will be released closer to the show.
On Jan. 19, the official 8123 Fest kicks off at Civic Space Park. The Maine will celebrate Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop’s 10-year anniversary by performing it in its entirety along with other tracks from their discography.
This performance marks the only time the Maine will play their debut album in full for the anniversary. There will also be a Make America Emo Again after party hosted at the Van Buren on Jan. 19.
Along with the Maine, We The Kings and This Century, we now know Mayday Parade will also be playing the festival.
This Century are also performing at a special side show Jan. 20 where they will play Sound Of Fire in its entirety along with other tracks from their catalog. Sound Of Fire was released in 2011, and it was This Century’s debut full-length. Special guests for the side show are still to be announced.
The full 8123 Fest lineup will be announced Nov. 1. The festival will be held Jan. 18–20 in Phoenix, Arizona, and tickets are available now.
