Wrecking Ball 2016 Lineup

Last year’s Wrecking Ball lineup was pretty good, and they’ve upped the ante this time around. The Atlanta festival just announced their roster for this year, and it’s pretty much emo central! If you consider yourself an emo and you’re not there, then what the hell are you doing? (I probably won’t be there, unfortunately.) Top of the bill includes Quicksand, L7, Drive Like Jehu, and the recently reunited Thursday, and the rest of the thing is rounded out by bands like American Football, the Julie Ruin, Motion City Soundtrack, Gorilla Biscuits, the Promise Ring, Deafheaven, Piebald, Touché Amoré, Bayside, Rainer Maria, Anti-Flag and a ton more. “Smaller” groups populating the lower half include Joyce Manor, Ceremony, the Menzingers, Diarrhea Planet, Mothers, Jeff Rosenstock, Potty Mouth, Lemuria, Antarticgo Vespucci, Microwave… Damn!
