In our opinion, the more music festivals that take place around metro Phoenix, the better.

Later this year, we're getting a new one: the Hearts on Fire festival.

Co-presented by local promoters Relentless Beats and Pskyo Steve Presents, the all-ages Hearts on Fire festival will take place on Friday, September 23, at Phoenix Raceway, 7602 Jimmie Johnson Drive, Avondale.

The All-American Rejects are headlining the festival, which will be an "emo-drenched pool of nostalgia," according to the press release. Supporting acts include Boys Like Girls, Mayday Parade, Set It Off, and Cray.
