The OC's very own all-ages mainstay, Chain Reaction, turns 20 this year and to celebrate, the minds behind the famed venue put together a killer lineup of bands near and dear to the venue and its fans. Dubbed Chain Fest, the event was held this past Saturday at The Observatory in Santa Ana and proved to be rousing success all around.

Photographer Joey Tobin was on hand to cover the event which featured sets from MXPX, The Story So Far, Title Fight, Anthony Green, Circa Survive, Basement, Chon, Citizen, Comeback Kid, Dance Gavin Dance, Elder Brother, Hail the Sun, Mat Kerekes, Movements, Nomads, Onelinedrawing, Secret Space, Taken, Tigers Jaw, Turnover, Zao.
