Emo Nite LA, the event that started at a dive bar in Los Angeles and now has spread to over 30 cities across the United States is going international.

It will be a night full of guest DJ’s, performances and plenty of surprises.

As heralded by Kerrang!“What is and isn’t emo isn’t a dance-floor concern, because Emo Nite transcends nostalgia. It relies upon the fact that the genre has never gone away. It’s emo’s open-mindedness that’s allowed for its re-emergence.Tonight is a fan’s safe heaven, a place where emo fights back.” Fans going to Slam Dunk Festival South can also ensure an easier entrance to the Festival by bringing their ticket to Emo Nite and exchanging for their wristband on-site. Tickets are available now, here.
