This past Monday it was announced that the Taste Of Chaos Festival has
returned for the second year in a row.  Taste Of Chaos began in 2005 as a
touring festival by Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman and co-founder of the
Rockstar Mayhem Tour and ran worldwide each year until it’s hiatus after the
European Tour in 2010.  The tour hit over 20 countries around the world in its 5
year run and it helped launch the careers of bands like The Used, Senses Fail,
My American Heart, Bleed The Dream, Story Of The Year, Street Drum Corps,
Aiden and Evaline to name a few.  This past October it made a triumphant return
in San Bernardino, California with over 13,000 fans in attendance.  Bands like
The Used and Story Of The Year made their return this one day event along with
the All American Rejects, Finch, Saves The Day, Dashboard Confessional, etc and
a DJ set from Blink 182 bassist Mark Hoppus.  It proved to be a very successful
show which returns again to San Bernardino this July after it makes a month
long trek across the United States with Taking Back Sunday, Dashboard
Confessional, The Early November and Saosin.  The tour will kick off on June 3rd
in Chicago, Illinois and wrap up with a huge end of the tour event in San
Bernardino on July 16th. Joining the bands from the tour at the festival will be
The Starting Line, Senses Fail, Saves The Day, Quicksand, Reggie & The Full
Effect, The Get Up Kids, Hot Rod Circuit, The Anniversary and more.  In addition
to the show there will also be carnival rides, a vendor village, food trucks and
more to enjoy.
