Taste of Chaos Returns for 2016 With Taking Back Sunday, Saosin + More

2016 Rockstar Energy Drink Taste of Chaos
2016 Rockstar Energy Drink Taste of Chaos

During the latter part of the first decade of the 21st century, the Taste of Chaos tour was one of the top festival draws, serving as a platform for many post hardcore and metal acts, but in 2010 the festival organizers decided the time had come to retire the brand. However, after a successful revival last year, Taste of Chaos is back for 2016.

The current incarnation of Taste of Chaos will be a traveling festival with Taking Back Sunday and Dashboard Confessional atop the bill, and a reunited Saosin featuring returning vocalist Anthony Green and The Early November also confirmed for the run.

The lineups will vary depending on location, but other acts just announced for the San Bernardino, Calif. tour ender on July 16 include Quicksand, The Get Up Kids, The Starting Line, Senses Fail, The Anniversary, Hot Rod Circuit and Reggie and the Full Effect. The tour gets underway June 3 in Chicago. All dates can be found below.

Dashboard Confessional’s Chris Carrabba says, “I am so happy to know fans are excited about this lineup, but I know I am the MOST excited. Dashboard Confessional gets to play for our favorite people WITH our favorite people. I cannot imagine a better way to spend the summer.” Taking Back Sunday collectively add, “It’s going to be good to be back in the company of so many bands we are both friends with and fans of.”

All tickets for the newly announced Rockstar Energy Drink Taste of Chaos San Bernardino date are general admission and will go on sale this Friday (April 1) at 10AM PT via the Taste of Chaos website. There will be an extremely limited amount of early bird general admission tickets starting at $25. The regular on-sale price will be $42.50. The prices do not include service fees or parking. There will also be VIP ticketing options for $199. For additional information on ticketing info for all of the stops, check here.
