Las Vegas’ emo festival When We Were Young is returning for its third edition in 2024, and although fans went wild with the announcement of their favorite artists playing albums in-full, many were aware of something lacking from the lineup: women.

WWWY 2024 is set to take over the Las Vegas Festival Grounds on October 19, featuring headlining performances from pop-punk powerhouses My Chemical Romance and Fall Out Boy. While other big-name acts like A Day to Remember, Sleeping with Sirens, The Used, and Pierce the Veil made the list, many fans took to social media to note that only a mere five artists on the bill included women: Cobra Starship, 3OH!3, The Distillers, The Forecast, and Pretty Girls Make Graves.

Although many pointed out that older emo bands that were popular during the early 2000s — which is the entire idea of WWWY — were male-fronted, others took to social media to share who the festival could have booked, including women that were at the forefront of the “scene” and “emo” community during the same time period.

Potential acts that were overlooked include Paramore and Avril Lavigne (both who had played at previous editions of the festival), as well as Flyleaf, Evanescence, Hey Monday,  PVRIS, We Are The In Crowd, Tonight Alive, and more.

Following the backlash, WWWY announced new additions to their lineup, featuring women-fronted bands: Hey Monday performing Hold On Tight, Tonight Alive performing The Other Side, The Millionaires taking on Cash Only, and We Are The In Crowd playing Weird Kids. Others added to the bill include Daisy Grenade and CARR.
