Sick New World Festival 2024 Announces Stage Times, Draws Outrage From Fans

Following a huge debut in 2023 year, Sick New World kicks off this weekend to Las Vegas Festival Grounds, on April 27, 2024 with an enormous collection of the world’s biggest hard rock, alternative, and up and coming artists. Headlined by System Of A Down, Slipknot with Bring Me The Horizon, A Perfect Circle, Alice In Chains, Danny Elfman, Bad Omens, Sleep Token, Knocked Loose, and many more among the 65 total bands. The festival has released its stage times and fans who have purchased tickets are expressing outrage on social media with some selling their tickets and vowing not to go. Check out our coverage of 2023’s festival here, here, here and the full review here, but find out about the drama below.



Once Sick New World announced their daily running order it became clear some bands were going to clash times, angering many fans. Some clashes are part of all music festivals, not just SNW, but last year seemed to have fewer really terrible ones. System of A Down closing the fest at the same time as hugely popular Sleep Token, Babymetal fans insulted that they are playing early in the day when they headline the biggest festivals fests in Europe and Japan, A Perfect Circle and Slaughter to Prevail clashing, Slipknot fans versus Black Veil Brides and Slowdive, Slipknot shorter set for the fest, BMTH or Polyphia and more. You really have to wonder why this festival is not spread out over two days.
