The first time I saw the flyer for the it’s NOT dead music festival, I had to look at it several times before I realized it was advertising an upcoming event, and not something that happened decades ago.

Seriously, the lineup for this upcoming punk festival resembles the lineups that made the Vans Warped Tour so awesome in its early days.

Right now, the flyer is really the only source of information for the it’s NOT dead festival. The flyer lists a website (itsnotdeadfestival.com), but, at the time of this article’s publishing, the site is just a GoDaddy placeholder page.

But, according to the flyer, the event will feature three music stages as well as some skaters.

Some of the bands advertised are:

  • Bad Religion
  • Descendents
  • Pennywise
  • Goldfinger
  • Less Than Jake
  • Lagwagon
  • NOFX
  • The Vandals
  • The Bouncing Souls

Some of these bands have reportedly confirmed that they are playing this gig. So, although it looks like a rad show straight out of 1997, it’s apparently a new show that will take place Saturday, October 10, 2015 at San Manuel Amphitheater in Devore, California.
