If you are familiar with Tough Love Fest then you probably know that it’s one of the most violent hardcore festivals on the planet, however, the crowd has nothing but love for this festival. Fans come from all over the United States to get a piece of this event. This is more than a show. It is a proving ground!
The idea is that old school hardcore ethics still live and there should be a show for this fanbase. Hardcore shows were created to be violent, but a lot of modern heavy music followings have given up on this concept. You’re not going to crowd bash at an A Day To Remember show without being escorted out, so Tough Love was created for this reason. It is a festival for fans that still believe in this ethic.
Every year consists of exciting touring, local, and headlining bands from all over. This year's bill is packed with a diverse range of heavy genres, so there’s something for every fan here. Corrupted booking always goes out of their way to make this festival possible. This year they have teamed up with a rising promotion in southern California called Rott entertainment to host this year’s festival at Gideon’s Hall in Upland. Tickets are still available online. Make sure to get them now to ensure your entree!
