I’m really excited about The Sick New World Festival which will be this weekend, Saturday, May 13th in Las Vegas, at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds. I’m excited that System of a Down is headlining the festival! I’ve never seen them live. They almost never play together anymore, and this is the only date they have scheduled this year. Sadly, they only played four shows in 2022. It was even fewer in 2021, with only three shows. Obviously, I didn’t get to see any of those shows, so there was no way I’m going to miss this one!
When I first heard they were playing, I knew Jess and I would be going. To make this trip happen I spent a small fortune buying VIP tickets and a hotel at The Strat which is close enough that we can walk to the venue. In case you weren’t aware this festival is sold out. So, I’m glad I got my tickets when I did. I’m heading out on Friday to get there a day early to get everything situated with weed and whatever else we need to do. The day of the show the plan is to get there early before the doors which are at noon, this way I can be one of the first in and we can try and get a spot on the rail where we will stay all day! There are a ton of other great bands playing which I will probably miss since I want to keep my spot on the rail for System of a Down. I’m still hoping to catch bands like Korn, Deftones, Incubus, Chevelle, Cold, Monster Magnet, Filter, and Stabbing Westward to mention a few. Hopefully they will be on one of the main stages and I will catch them.
I will of course have some weed and alcohol for the show. I hope to see many of you there, and plan to smoke and rock out with as many of you as I can.
I will of course have pictures and videos throughout the day and when I return, I will have my full concert review and more pictures to share with all of you.
