Phoenix 8123 Fest Makes First Artist Line-Up Announcement

8123 Fest has made the first band announcement of artists playing the festival this coming January, 2017. In an announcement that coincided with the on sale release of general admission tickets, the first wave of bands performing was posted.

The Maine is headlining the festival for their 10th anniversary as a band. Also featured on the bill is fellow Arizonans The Summer Set and The Technicolors. 8123’s Beach Weather will also be performing at the fest.

Fans can look forward to California’s Brighten performing their first live show in years. John The Ghost, a side project of The Maine’s John O’Callaghan, will be playing his first ever live set under the pseudonym. Several special acoustic acts will also be making appearances at the festival – including the highly anticipated reunion of This Century, who disbanded more than a year ago. As a solo project of the frontman of This Century, Joel Kanitz will also be performing an acoustic set. 8123 Fest takes place in Phoenix, AZ on January 20th – 22nd 2017.

General admission tickets for the festival are now on sale. Fans can pick them up at More information and additional artists will be posted on the site as they are announced.

Hello, my name is Arlene Allen, and I love all things nerd: genre tv and movies, books, loud rock and roll music, kittens, conventions, books, graphic novels and superheroes, RPG and tabletop games, and did I say books? Oh, yes. I spent 25 years as a librarian (nerd) mainly working with youth (creating nerds), a number of years as a teacher (more nerd indoctrination). I have my own spawn, leveled up to 22 and my partner in nerdiness. As a nerdy writer, I have found a home at Talk Nerdy With Us.
