New Found Glory has maintained their 20-year career by constantly challenging themselves, experimenting with creative videos and musical styles and staying connected to their fans and community. They continue this tradition with the announcement of BreakFEST, a full day music and food festival showcasing breakfast foods, happening on June 24, 2018. The event will be located inside The Factory in Franklin, TN. For more information, please go to http://breakfest.net/.
The festival will feature performances from New Found Glory, Bayside, The Movielife, Hot Rod Circuit, Free Throw, William Ryan Key (formerly of Yellowcard), Daddy Issues, The Dangerous Summer, Cartel (Acoustic with Will Pugh) and Idle Bloom. Additionally, local food vendors like Frothy Monkey, Five Daughters Bakery, Honest Coffee Roasters, Triple Crown Bakery, High Brow and Franklin Juice Co. will be providing delicious food and drinks to BreakFEST guests. Tickets go on sale tomorrow, March 16th, at noon local time and will be available at http://breakfest.shofetti.com/.
On this very special event, New Found Glory Guitarist, Franklin Resident and BreakFest creator Chad Gilbert shares, “I live in a community where new ideas are encouraged and shared. Every person in Franklin offers their own version of interest and passion and it is supported and appreciated by all. The first annual BreakFEST is a contribution to my community and a future I hope to build here in Franklin, Tennessee. Bringing an eclectic line up of national and local punk, indie, and emo bands and everything in between. I believe that fun and different concepts make an experience more memorable. So unlike other music festivals, this one will start at 8 am and is built around the popular theme of breakfast foods! The participating vendors are some of my favorite local breakfast and coffee destinations. Drink coffee, eat a donut, watch your favorite band, make new friends, and be a part of it all.”
New Found Glory recently announced a concert to benefit Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, in which two band members are alumni. With intimate acoustic sets from friends Chris Carrabba (Dashboard Confessional) and Ryan Key (Yellowcard), this special show will take place at Pompano Beach Amphitheater on May 16, 2018. 100% of the proceeds including ticket sales, concessions, merchandise and sponsorships from this show will be given to The Official Broward Education Foundation Victims Fund. Tickets for #ParklandStrong are available now at pbamp.com and axs.com.
In between these two very special shows, New Found Glory will be kicking off The Sick Tour with support from Bayside, The Movielife, and former Yellowcard vocalist Ryan Key on May 17th in Orlando, FL before wrapping up on June 22nd in Dallas, TX. All tickets are on-sale now at http://newfoundglory.shofetti.com/.
