With the touring aspect of The Van's Warped Tour in 2018 coming to a close, the touring festival circuit was in need of a scene spot once again. Rockstar stepped up to the plate in 2019 bringing its inaugural Rockstar Energy Drink DISRUPT Festival to 25 dates throughout the United States and will be providing two stages full of chaos and mayhem. In our local market here in Connecticut, there is no shortage of fans for the bands on this bill. Top billed acts such as The Used, Circa Survive, and Thrice absolutely hammer it all the time in their live performances, and of course you won't want to miss the closing acts, but who else is there to pique your interest and make you arrive early and stay late in the summer heat?
Fan favorites - HYRO the Hero is guaranteed to keep everyone entertained with their insane crowd participation antics and extremely energetic sets.
Memphis May Fire is also one of my personal favorites, having been around for over 13 years now and still not very well known. Having quite a few lineup changes in their history, yet always putting out amazing records, with their latest being in 2018, Broken on Rise Records. This is a band you won't want to be in the concession lines for. Check their newest video below!
Lastly, the veteran crew in Four Year Strong, a staple in the EMO and Scene era, highly underrated and always energetic, they'll be hitting the stages bright and early, so you will need to pack some sunblock! I wanted to post a LIVE video for this one as you'll really get a feel for why you won't want to miss these bands!
