Sleeping with Sirens to play Emo Nite's 'Vegas Vacation' mega party


There's no promoter in the scene right now that's more popular than Emo Nite. What started out as scene kids who grew up and wanted to create this generations nostalgia-fest in the emo/scene/post-hardcore genre has now garnered the attention from icons in this music scene.

Enter Sleeping With Sirens.

Sleeping with Sirens announced they will be playing at the Emo Nite 'Vegas Vacation' festival from October 14th - 17th. With such a big name added to the festival, I don't see ticket availability lasting very long, especially given Emo Nite's track record of always hosting legendary parties plus random celebrity drop ins.

The Emo Nite 'Vegas Vacation' festival will take place October 14th - 17th. So get 'em while their hot.
