There’s one last party in the Sunshine State this year, and it’s going to be pretty emo. Emo Social, run by Dashboard Confessional drummer Chris Kamrada, announced a packed line-up to grace the Florida lands. The event goes down on December 16 at Wall Street Plaza in Orlando, FL, and boasts an emo legend act and trending pop-punk and alternative artists.

Ohio emos Hawthorne Heights are scheduled to headline the show. Supporting acts include 408, Capstan, “emo trashFELICITY, Greyson Zane, and Twin Rova. Plus, there will also be guest DJs throughout the event. Hawthorne Heights recently wrapped their Emo Orchestra run, where they transformed popular scene songs into softer melodies. The “Niki FM” act will return to When We Were Young Fest in Las Vegas, NV, next year and perform their debut album, The Silence In Black And White.

Meanwhile, FELICITY is still riding the high from writing the emo anthem of the summer along with Greyson Zane.
