Additional performers for the 2020 edition will include Glassjaw, Cartel, and Acceptance.

Chain Fest will also be raising money for the Living The Dream Foundation, a non-profit that helps children and young adults living with life-threatening illnesses stay positive, maintain hope, and appreciate each and every day, regardless of their affliction.

Last year, Live Nation Entertainment announced a strategic partnership with the legendary venue. They are now “looking to bring Chain Reaction’s punk personality to a larger stage with the reemergence of Chain Fest,” according to a release.
