Van’s Warped Tour is touring North America this summer for the 20th year in a row! Warped Tour is a music festival for alternative music. It’s traveling to over 40 cites in the United States and Canada.

 

Doors open at 11:00am and the shows and tents close down by 9:00pm. Tickets are $45 and are available through your local tour dates page. There are usually tickets available the day of the show at the venue box office vanswarpedtour.comreported. Warped Tour offers one complimentary parent/guardian admission to accompany a minor that has a purchased ticket. There is also the Reverse Daycare tent which is an air-conditioned place for the parents who escort their teens to the concerts but need a break from the heat and loud music.

 

If you want to avoid a long admission line all you have to do is bring three canned goods, a $5 donation, or a used cell phone to the Feed Our Children tent and you’ll receive a skip the line wristband according to vanswarpedtour.com. Also the nonprofit Music Saves Lives offers a backstage wristband for the first 100 ticket holder to offer to donate blood or has someone donate for you.

 

Some of the bands playing this year are Breathe Carolina, Crown The Empire, Echosmith, Falling In Reverse, Issues, Mayday Parade, Motionless In White, Of Mice & Men, Parkway Drive, The Devil Wears Prada, The Maine, The Ready Set, The Story So Far, The Summer Set, This Wild Life, We The Kings, 3oh!3, A Skylit Drive, Alive Like Me, Attila, Chelsea Grin, Get Scared, Ghost Town, SECRETS, The Ghost Inside, The World Alive, We Are The In Crowd, Yellowcard, and more.

 

If you plan on going, Warped Tour’s website suggest to bring a small, lightweight backpack, sunscreen, a small snack, a water bottle, a camera, sharpie for autographs and writing set times, and a fully charged cell phone.
