      Bio

      Warped Tour is back for its 17th year and is sponsored by none other than Vans. Headlining the 2011 tour is 3Oh!3, Against Me!, Asking Alexandria, Attack Attack!, August Burns Red, Gym Class Heroes, and The Devil Wears Prada. Warped Tour dates will of course feature the bands who have become a staple on tour dates in past years, along with some newcomers.

      The Warped Tour was created in 1994 by Kevin Lyman, who was a veteran of the skating scene as well as a three-year Lollapolooza veteran. Seeing how many Southern California punk and ska bands were apart of the skating and surfing scenes, Lyman had the idea to take these bands with similar styles on a series of tour dates. With serious doubts about the possibility of making the tour an annual event, Vans approached Lyman about putting on tour dates for a skating festival. A spark flashed in Lyman's mind and decided to incorporate the two ideas: Thus the longest running, annual North American tour was born.

      While the following '95 and '96 tours only featured a handful of bands, the popularity has grown to such that there are sometimes nearly 100 bands playing on any given tour date. It wouldn't be a Van's Warped Tour without the addition of skating, BMX, and extreme sports demonstrations. There are also various vender booths run by both commercial companies and bands, selling a variety of clothing and accessories. It's also worth mentioning that, in recent years, the Warped Tour has become more environmentally friendly.

      If this year's Warped Tour line-up is any indication, 2011 tour dates will be pretty amazing. There are five stages this year, with the main stage featuring all the headliners mentioned above, plus D.R.U.G.S., Jack's Mannequin, Less Than Jake, Paramore, and Pepper. The Alternative Press/Advent Clothing Stage will feature The Aggrolites, The Expendables, Lionize, and Middle Class Rut. Some of the bands playing the Skullcandy Stage will be Big B, Foxy Shazam, illScarlett, MC Lars with Weerd Science, and Yelawolf. Performers on the Ernie Ball Stage include, but are not limited to Eyes Set to Kill, Madina Lake, My Arcadia, There For Tomorrow, and We're Doomed. Featured acts on the infamous Kevin Says Stage will be The Bots, The Dance Party, Good Guys in Black, Larry and His Flask, The Mezingers, Places and Numbers, Sharks, and Windsor Drive. Remember, not every band is playing every tour date in 2011, so check the schedule to see when your favorite bands are playing.
