When We Were Hungry Festival

‘When We Were Hungry Fest’ Officially Cancelled


The ‘When We Were Hungry Fest‘ has officially been cancelled. Originating from a meme created by Modern Day Escape‘s William Wenz in response to the ‘When We Were Young Festival‘, the event has now been cancelled amid ‘”unforeseen circumstances.”

A solid roster of talent had been assembled for the scrapped festival, which was to take place in Las Vegas, NV on October 20th and 21st and feature sets from Black Flag, Madball, Secondhand Serenade and many more.

A statement from the festival’s organizers issued today, September 22nd reads as follows:

“Due to unforeseen circumstances, ‘When We Were Hungry Fest‘ 2022 is no longer able to take place. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and we understand your frustrations, as we too are heartbroken that it has come to this. Our team has consistently been working around the clock trying our hardest to make things work, but sadly, it was beyond our control.

We would like to thank those who have supported us, as well as all artists who were set to play. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts. Please continue to support the bands who were scheduled to play WWWH and please support smaller festivals and tours. The music industry is struggling right now. Your support is beyond appreciated.”

The following was added for those seeking refunds:

‘Refunds for the event are available at point of purchase and will be processed immediately. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact [email protected] with the subject “Ticket Refund,” notating name on the transaction and order number.’
