Is the nu metal scene about to get its own When We Were Young festival?

Over the weekend, bands including Deftones, Incubus, System of a Down, Evanescence, Korn and Chevelle all posted a video on Instagram teasing something called “Sick New World.” The posts all featured the same animated video of devilish creatures flying around Las Vegas.

If you go to, you’ll find a blank lineup poster advertising something on May 13, 2023 at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds, which is also where When We Were Young was held.

Nothing official has been announced yet, though, so stay tuned.

When We Were Young went viral earlier this year with its lineup loaded with 2000s emo and pop-punk artists, headlined by My Chemical Romance and Paramore. Two of its scheduled three days were held in October; the first day was canceled due to extreme weather conditions.

Next year’s When We Were Young is scheduled for October 21 and will be headlined by Green Day and the reunited Blink-182.
