Platinum-selling emo legends Hawthorne Heights are bringing TENNESSEE IS FOR LOVERS to Grundy County, TN on Sunday, September 10th. The daylong festival will take place at our scenic outdoor amphitheater and below ground in our world-famous cave venue featuring performances from Underoath, Bayside, Mayday Parade, State Champs, Thursday, Hawthorne Heights, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Emery, Spitalfield, Winona Fighter, Proper, House Parties, Khamsin, and Skye Wallace. Tickets are on sale today at 2p CT.
With a focus on elevating women, artists of color, and LGBTQ musicians across the lineup, TENNESSEE IS FOR LOVERS will emphasize Hawthorne Heights’ commitment to inclusivity and optimism that’s powered their career since first breaking onto the scene with the landmark 2004 album The Silence In Black And White and iconic songs “Ohio Is For Lovers,” “Saying Sorry” and “Niki FM.” In a tribute to their dear friends who’ve since passed away, the festival’s stages will be named after Hawthorne Heights guitarist Casey Calvert and Bayside drummer John “Beatz” Holohan.
