Florida rock band A Day to Remember has announced the return of their curated event Self Help Festival. Self Help will return on Oct. 12 in San Bernardino, Calif. with performances from A Day to Remember, I Prevail, Beartooth, Periphery, This Wild Life and more.
The festival has also announced its first ever Boston area edition on Sept. 7 in Worcester, Mass. The Massachusetts festival will also feature A Day to Remember with support from Falling In Reverse, Fever 333, Whitechapel and more.
The San Bernardino event returns to NOS Events Center and the Worcester festival will be held at The Palladium Outdoors.
“Music has always been therapy to us which is how we got the name Self Help. Our goal is for you to be able to, if even for just a day, escape everything going on and have a great time,” said A Day to Remember guitarist Neil Westfall in a release.
The festival is a partnership between A Day To Remember, Fly South Music Group (managers Mark Mercado and John Youngman) and United Talent Agency. UTA’s Ken Fermaglich books A Day to Remember. Rich Best with Live Nation will promote the California show while independent promoter John Peters is handling Worcester. UTA agent Chris Visconti has also been involved with the talent lineup.
“We’ve been managing A Day To Remember for 10 years now and one of my favorite things about these guys is their entrepreneurial spirit. In addition to writing great songs and having a killer live show, they’re all smart business guys,” said Youngman, co-founder of Fly South Music Group with partner Mercado.
Self Help Festival was started by A Day To Remember and Fly South Music Group in 2014 with events in Philadelphia and San Bernardino. The festival has also taken place in Detroit and Orlando. The band’s mission for the festival is to bring people together to experience bands with a positive message and a portion of the proceeds go to mental health charities.
“A Day To Remember is stepping up their game with everything they are doing – from music to touring – and we are really excited to be a part of that. This festival is no exception to that,” said Fermaglich in a release.
