New Found Glory Announce BreakFEST Event

New Found Glory have announced a music and breakfast event called BreakFEST. It will be held at 8:00 a.m. on June 24 at The Factory in Franklin, TN, and it will feature the following artists: New Found Glory, Bayside, The Movielife, Hot Rod Circuit, Free Throw, William Ryan Key (ex-Yellowcard), Daddy Issues, The Dangerous Summer, Cartel (acoustic with Will Pugh), and Idle Bloom. Food and drinks will be provided by Frothy Monkey, Five Daughters Bakery, Honest Coffee Roasters, Triple Crown Bakery, High Brow and Franklin Juice Co.

Chad Gilbert commented:

“I live in a community where new ideas are encouraged and shared. Every person in Franklin offers their own version of interest and passion and it is supported and appreciated by all. The first annual BreakFEST is a contribution to my community and a future I hope to build here in Franklin, Tennessee. Bringing an eclectic line up of national and local punk, indie, and emo bands and everything in between.

I believe that fun and different concepts make an experience more memorable. So unlike other music festivals, this one will start at 8 am and is built around the popular theme of breakfast foods! The participating vendors are some of my favorite local breakfast and coffee destinations. Drink coffee, eat a donut, watch your favorite band, make new friends, and be a part of it all.”
