New Found Glory is hosting their second annual BreakFEST, a full day festival showcasing not only music but the most important meal of the day – breakfast, on June 2, 2019 inside The Factory in Franklin. The festival features bands like Real Friends, Mae, Hawthorne Heights, The Early November, Microwave, Jetty Bones, Love You Later, Doll Skin and H.A.R.D.

We spoke to Franklin resident, Chad Gilbert of New Found Glory who gave us five reasons why you should get up early (the festival starts at 8 am) and start your day at BreakFEST in Franklin.

Tip #1 – Get there before doors open! Why? Because the first 300 people get a free goodie bag! A cool bag with BreakFEST printed on it and this year it comes with a custom BreakFEST enamel pin!!! You aren’t gonna wanna miss out of these free limited merch items!

Tip #2 – Come with an empty stomach! No need to worry about eating before the show like most concerts you attend! Why? Because we have all the best local breakfast food destinations as vendors at our festival! Try all the food all morning!

Tip #3 – No need for a babysitter! This festival is during the day and very family friendly. If they are 5 and under they even can get in free! Be the cool parents that you are and make BreakFEST your child’s first rock show! If they get tired just give them a donut!

Tip #4 – Take home a memory and grab the custom poster fast!!! Last year the screenprinted poster we made for the event sold out in the first 20 minutes! I’d suggest heading over to the official BreakFEST merch booth run by Franklin’s Twine Graphics and pick up a poster before they are gone. PLUS there is re-entry so you can run out and put it safely in your car.

Tip #5 – Keep stopping by the Java Monster booth. Bands will be signing all day so you can get your merch signed and say what’s up to your favorite BreaKFEST artist. New Found Glory will be signing at 8:30am.

Thanks to Chad Gilbert for those great tips. BreakFEST is just another way that New Found Glory continues to find unique ways to connect with their fans and their local communities. For more information and to purchase tickets, go to the BreakFEST website here.
