Originally launched in 2005 by Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman and John Reese (co-founder of Mayhem Festival, Odd Ball Festival), Taste Of Chaos went on to hit 20 countries around the world over its five-year run, helping to launch the careers of bands like Thirty Seconds To Mars, Paramore, My Chemical Romance, Chiodos, Saosin and more, while highlighting such fan favorites as The Used, Deftones, Avenged Sevenfold, Rise Against, Thrice, Story of The Year and Taking Back Sunday. Lyman says, "We couldn't be more excited to re-launch Taste of Chaos in 2015, as one of the premiere annual alternative rock festivals of the fall; And what better place to do it than Southern California." Reese adds, "The epic lineup for the relaunch captures the essence of what Taste of Chaos has always been about: A celebration of the alternative/indie/rock scene, an epic day out with some of your favorite bands, great food and good memories." Live Nation, Executive V.P. of Booking, Rich Best, says, "This fall we are thrilled to be kicking off what we are confident will become a new annual tradition for SoCal alternative rock fans."

Doug's last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. Doug has been averaging 15k for months now and he works about 20 hours a week. He can't believe how easy it was once he tried it out. This is what Doug does, w-w-w.e-x-t-r-a-s-a-l-a-r- y.c-o-mONLY


anonymous 6/21/2015 5:29:31 PM

anonymous 6/22/2015 6:56:11 AM

damn...if anyone cared enough to really go to this, that 200 bucks for the VIP would probably be worth it. Just for the advantage of dealing with a slightly smaller number of retarded concert attendees. Probably still would run into a few of the Waynes World 2 type backstage dweebs.


anonymous 6/22/2015 5:20:29 PM

2003 is stoked
