Warped Tour Confirms Lineup

With veteran acts and latter day heroes on the bill, the Vans Warped Tour will bring a full slate of punk rock and action sports to venues across the United States for an 11th time this summer. Although specific dates have not been revealed, organizers are planning a March 15 Internet ticket pre-sale at

At deadline, an initial lineup of 60 acts are confirmed to appear, with more to be added. As previously reported, the Offspring, the Transplants, Thrice, My Chemical Romance and Fall Out Boy have already acknowledged their participation on the tour.

Among the other acts slated to appear are Motion City Soundtrack, Dropkick Murphys, Senses Fail, Underoath, Atreyu, Tsunami Bomb, Avenged Sevenfold, the Explosion, the Matches, Hawthorne Heights, Strung Out, the Bled, Horrorpops and the Starting Line. The full lineup of confirmed acts is listed below.

Acts will entertain audiences across two main stages, a second stage sponsored by Hurley and eight other branded stages, one of which will be set up just outside each venue. As has become the norm for this outing, not all bands will play all dates.

Tapping myriad sponsors for the tour’s various stages and attractions helps organizers keep ticket prices affordable. One new sponsored music feature is dubbed Energizer Keeps the Music Going, where advance online voting will award one band at each date a 10-minute set extension.

On the sports side, 2005 will bring a daily Amateur Skate Jam, where professionals will judge 20 local skaters at each stop and award prize money. A Punk Junk donation center will benefit local homeless shelters, with needed items listed on the tour Web site and a tour sponsor gift given to those who contribute.
