“We are happy to be back in 2024, soaking up the summer sun with these bands and fans, most of who have been shedding and shredding tears with us since 2004,” stated Hawthorne Heights singer JT Woodruff. “While each show has a wildly different feel, we think it’s important to celebrate the local and regional attractions at each date.”

He continued, “Is For Lovers Festival is designed to put the fan in a Time Machine, and transport them back to the most vibrant years of their lives. We try to make it an easy day spent in beautiful locations with bands that helped shape who they are. Hawthorne Heights is excited to be outside, setting up tents, loading gear, singing these songs, and personally spending time with our fans.”
