Hundreds of people danced the night away to MCR, FOB, Paramore and more at the first ever E.N.D - Emo Nite Day.

Emo Nite, the regular club-night celebration of all things scene, finally took things to the next level this past weekend (December 3rd) by staging the first ever Emo Nite Day, a one-day emo festival held at LA's Shrine Expo Halls.

Boasting a starry lineup including The Used, Machine Gun Kelly and I Don't Know How But They Found Me, the event also saw DJ sets from the likes of Pierce The Veil's Vic Fuentes, Neck Deep's Fil Thorpe-Evans and William Beckett of The Academy Is...

But there were also plenty of surprises in store for the huge crowd too with Demi Lovato popping up as a secret performer to do a pop punk take on current hit 'Sorry, Not Sorry':

Demi has previously hung out at the Emo Nite club, tearing through Paramore's 'Misery Business' from behind the decks. Seriously, when is she just gonna give us the emo album we all want to hear from her?

Plus, The Chainsmokers also showed up during Captain Cuts' headline set, after famously remixing Panic!'s 'I Write Sins Not Tragedies' during recent live shows over the summer.

Other festival highlights included a Noserfatu dance troupe, some epic MCR-themed cosplay and some very swish-looking merchandise available to buy.
