 About the VANS WARPED TOUR®:
The VANS WARPED TOUR® is well established as America’s longest-running touring festival, breaking up-and-coming indie talent as well as both creating and showcasing major established artists since 1995.  The nationally renowned festival has cemented its place in history by playing a major role in bringing punk-rock/skate/action sports culture from the underground to the forefront of global youth culture, while at the same time helping those in need and being the first tour to consistently use groundbreaking environmental techniques every year on the road. The Warped Eco Initiatives (WEI) range from biodiesel fuel for touring trucks and buses, to environmentally friendly catering for bands and crew courtesy of Tada Catering. There’s even a solar-powered sound system on the Kevin Says Stage and www.vanswarpedtour.com showcases public transportation options for each tour date and carpool message boards as well as eco contests. The traveling punk rock summer camp features a diverse array of artists–from hotly tipped acts in every genre from punk and metal to rock, pop and hip-hop; as well as a variety of lifestyle attractions for its traditionally low ticket price.  For more information on the tour that Alternative Press readers voted the “Best Tour/Festival” of 2009 and Rolling Stone called “America’s most successful festival” (2005), go to: www.vanswarpedtour.com.
