The Maine

8123 Fest is just over two months away, but we couldn’t be more stoked. Plus, it just keeps getting better as the Maine announced the next act to round out their festival’s 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 recently.

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 band 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.

The band have been teasing the lineup by releasing one band at a time, and now we know the next band added to the lineup. We The Kings, This CenturyMayday Parade and Teenage Wrist will be joining the Maine for the festival.

Now, it’s revealed Real Friends will also be playing. The Maine also released the official poster, which can be seen below.
