So far, Bring Me The Horizon is the only band to have confirmed participation in 2013’s Vans Warped Tour, but that doesn’t mean it’s too early to start anticipating! December 7th the official Vans Warped Tour website is announcing the first set of bands, as well selling tickets.
Since it’s origin in 1995, Warped Tour has changed a lot. From the 1996 “Sampler” to 1999, names like Sublime, Beck, Rancid, Bad Religion, and NOFX appear a lot. Since the turn of this century, music has changed alot. In the past decade , more names like, Taking Back Sunday, Yellowcard, Fall Out Boy, Matchbook Romance, All Time Low, and Mayday Parade are becoming more frequent alongside the veterans of Warped Tour. There was an emergence of pop-punk, pop-rock, electronic rock, and many other “versions” of rock and punk; who’s participants have earned them impressive fanbases.
So what does a tour who loves people do? They let the big names come play, and let the small bands make names. It’s not a punk tour anymore, that is true, but it’s still a place for people who like loud energetic music to come and fit in. It’s a place that every rock kid dreams about at least once.
Not to mention the lineups. No matter what “kind” of rock or punk you like, there will be bands you love on Warped.
Speaking of lineups, who do you want to see this year? I’m hoping for Pierce The Veil, The Nearly Deads, and All Time Low.
Let me know in the comments!
