Emerge has revealed another big piece of its 2019 puzzle. The second-year “music and impact” festival—scheduled for May 31 and June 1 at the Hard Rock Hotel—has announced that former My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way will participate in its Conversations showcase, along with Grammy-winning producer Rob Cavallo (Green Day, Goo Goo Dolls, Linkin Park).
The 42-year-old Way, who also authored the comic series The Umbrella Academy (recently adapted into a popular and critically acclaimed Netflix TV show), joins an Emerge lineup that already includes Killers singer Brandon Flowers, Against Me! leader Laura Jane Grace, indie favorite Andrew Bird, rapper Talib Kweli and Parkland school shooting survivors Emma Gonzalez and David Hogg, among others.
Tickets, ranging in price from $130 for a single day or $199 for both, are on sale now at emergelv.com.
