Last year’s Wrecking Ball lineup came in like a… well, you get the idea. So many great up-and-comers mixed in with the heavyhitters of punk and hardcore. This year, Wrecking Ball's organizers are looking to one-up themselves. Over 60 artists across five stages. Lots of rare appearances and much-anticipated reunions that will make you go "hooooly shit" and promptly buy a ticket to Atlanta. Piebald! Quicksand! Thursday (which should come to the surprise of no one who has been following Geoff Rickly’s tweets lately)! Hey Mercedes!

The festival, which takes place on August 13 and 14 in Atlanta, Georgia, also boasts Motion City Soundtrack who are taking their last victory lap, the recently regrouped American Football, L7, Drive Like Jehu, and Noisey faves The Menzingers. Let’s take a gander at the full lineup and drool, shall we?
