Seemingly out of the blue Just Like Heaven Fest has emerged to offer-up one of the biggest throwbacks of indie-rock of the year with a lineup that lays on the nostalgia rather thick. With synth-pop outfit Passion Pit celebrating the ten-year anniversary of their debut album Manners it appears that other late 00s artists have decided to get onboard this wistful train back to a decade ago. Back then, this lineup would’ve been the kind to decorate a pre-teen or teenager’s dream Fuck Yeah Fest poster—we know it would’ve been ours. With likes of Phoenix, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, MGMT, and Beach House—just to name a few—filling out as headliners to the festival, Just Like Heaven Fest has wrangled together all those indie bands you might’ve filled a mixed-CD with to give to your crush. And if you still find yourself on the fence about JLH Fest, here are five reasons why it is such a sentimental throwback makes it one of the best lineups of 2019 so far.
