On celebrating their two-year anniversary, founder TJ Petracca said, “It’s honestly pretty surreal. This whole thing has gotten way bigger than we ever imagined or intended it to get. I’m so honored and happy to be celebrating two years of this party. We have made some amazing new friends, got to travel and see a ton of new cities, and meet our idols/heroes. Stepping back and looking at it from afar… I truly can’t believe it.”
They show no signs of slowing down, having just announced another partnership with Vans Warped Tour at Warped Rewind at Sea. Emo Nite also launched their latest fashion collection, Emo Nite Capsule II at the two-year anniversary party, after exclusively announcing with Galore Magazine. The new collection consists of a hoodie, windbreaker, beanie, long sleeve shirt and some various t-shirts, along with various limited edition variants of each item.
