For anyone who enjoys live shows, or is a frequent concert goer, you might want to check out Vans Warped Tour, if you have not already. Warped Tour is a huge music festival that tours all over the United States, along with a few dates in Canada, all throughout the summer months. Warped Tour performers consist of many different genres of punk, alternative, ska, screamo, etc., bands that may play the whole tour, or at least a few dates. You can watch numerous bands in just one day because part of the setup includes several different stages; each band is scheduled to play on a certain stage at a certain time. Some bands that played last summer, 2010, at Warped Tour, were Alkaline Trio, The Casualties, Anti-Flag, Four Year Strong, and The All-American Rejects. Along with the music, many tents are set up at Warped Tour for different organizations such as Music Saves Lives, Keep A Breast Foundation, and Peta2.
Warped Tour is a chance to hear great music and see bands perform live, participate in organizations that help changes lives, attend signings and maybe even meet bands, and to have fun in an environment of music, punk, and skate.
According to Warped Tour's website, under the bands tab, they will begin announcing some of the bands that will be performing this summer at Warped Tour 2011. I added a slide show to this post of previous Warped Tour photos from the tour in 2006 all the way to last summer's tour, 2010, giving you at look at the fun before the show if you're attending...or a look at what you'll be missing if you don't! All photos were taken by me.
