Taking Back Sunday will headline the opening night of this year’s Great South Bay Music Festival on July 18.
The Long Island Music Hall of Famers, currently on a world tour to celebrate their 20th anniversary as a band and their greatest-hits compilation, “Twenty,” sold out Long Island’s biggest music festival when they last headlined Shorefront Park in Patchogue in 2017.
The lineup for the first night of the four-day festival also includes fellow Long Island hardcore scene veterans Glassjaw, Pennsylvania punk rockers The Menzingers and former My Chemical Romance guitarist Frank Iero and his new band The Future Violents.
Tickets are $42.50 for the first night of the four-day festival and go on sale at 9 a.m. on Friday through greatsouthbaymusicfestival.com. Tickets for the July 19 show — with headliners Slightly Stoopid and Sublime With Rome — are already on sale, also for $42.50. VIP tickets for both days are also available for $75.
