Last weekend, Texas’ Grand Prairie transformed into an emo paradise for the latest edition of So What?! Festival. The two-day event took place in the blistering heat, with sets from the likes of Attila, Mayday Parade, The Story So Far and Every Time I Die. Christian Sarkine went down to check it out, and also caught Friday’s pre-parties which took place in and around Dallas.
