The 40-date Vans Warped Tour--well established as America’s premier music and lifestyle festival tour of the summer--is set to kick off June 15 in Auburn, WA at White River Amphitheater and wrap up August 4 in Houston, TX at Reliant Park. A music lover’s playground, the Vans Warped Tour has been breaking up-and-coming indie talent as well as both creating and showcasing major established artists since 1995. The nationally-renowned touring festival will be bringing the “Best Day Ever” to fans across the U.S. and Canada.

“Each year as the tour takes shape it is exciting to see it when it comes together. It would be impossible to put on a tour of this size and caliber, for a fair price, if we did not have the support of this wonderful group of sponsors,” Vans Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman. “We’re able to bring the best show possible and in 2013, I’m convinced we will not let the fans down.”

The Vans Warped Tour 2013 multi-stage line-up includes Sleeping With Sirens, Black Veil Brides, We Came As Romans, Motion City Soundtrack, The Wonder Years, Bring Me the Horizon, Reel Big Fish, Crown The Empire, The Story So Far and many more. A mix of hotly-tipped and established artists, the summer trek is the most eclectic traveling festival tour on the planet featuring rock, punk, pop, EDM, hip-hop and rap, metal, indie rock, alt-country, folk-punk, reggae and rockabilly. For the full list of confirmed acts, visit: www.vanswarpedtour.com/bands

Every summer, the Vans Warped Tour has consistently offered a wide-range of lifestyle attractions onsite for a traditionally low ticket price. Following is a list of the new and returning attractions in the Vans Warped Tour tent village and the tour sponsors for the 2013 run.
