    My Chemical Romance and Paramore are headlining, so it will truly feel like you're transporting back to 2008. But if that's not enough for you, Bring Me the Horizon, A Day to Remember, and Avril Lavigne are going to be there too.

    As you can probably imagine, the announcement of the festival alone was enough to fuel hundreds of memes and emo-enthused reactions on Twitter.

    Many former emo kids joked that the festival was all part of the universe's redemption arc.

    When We Were Young Fest is God’s way of saying sorry you were bullied in middle school, go get fucked up with your friends and relive the emo years baby

    People also noted the design of the lineup poster, laughing that it resembled a 2000s-style collage for a desktop computer.

    Others were amused at the thought of the festival's potential wristbands...

    ...and honestly, the festival creators are missing an opportunity here if they don't do this.

    But emo or not, it's clear everyone was just feeling nostalgic for the good old days. I mean, who doesn't miss when "Welcome to the Black Parade" was a Billboard Hot 100 hit?

    i feel that it’s my civic duty as an elder emo to attend When We Were Young music festival
