“There’s been a bit of an ATL drought in the UK recently so we thought it best to come back and tear shit up with some rad bands. Bring your life jackets,” All Time Low’s Alex Gaskarth said.
Fans were disappointed to learn recently that the Birmingham leg of the festival has been cancelled for 2019. Organisers cited a location move and a site expansion as the reasons behind the cancellation.
