The Full Vans Warped Tour 2016 Lineup Is Here!


Though a small factor amongst some bigger shitstorms, we’d argue that one of the many bullets riddled in Soundwave 2016’s corpse is the decision organisers made to drip feed the lineup. It trivialised hype, burnt punters out before the first major announcement even came, and just generally sucked. The format was modelled on how Vans Warped Tour lineups had been announced for the past couple of years, but assumedly after seeing what it did to the ‘Wave, Kevin Lyman and co. have forgone the bullshit and dropped the Warped ’16 lineup with one truly epic bombshell.

Along with the much-adored return of festival favourites like Sum 41 and New Found Glory, the 77-act lineup features some names that makes the impracticalities of the trip fuckin’ sting – Good Charlotte, Less Than Jake, Four Year Strong and Mayday Parade are all at the top of the list, with Every Time I Die, Yellowcard and Whitechapel only enticing us to sell our souls even more. 3Oh!3 are also at the very top of the lineup, because apparently, it’s 2006 again.

There’s even a good sprinkle of talent from Down Under to sink your teeth into – Tonight Alive and In Hearts Wake are both returning to the circuit, and because 2016 is the year where they pretty much become the new 5 Seconds Of Summer, punters will see the international introduction of Sydney pop-punks With Confidence.

Vans Warped Tour kicks off on June 24th in Dallas, and will hit a jaw-dropping 30 US cities before wrapping up in Portland on August 13th. Tickets are on sale now for prices hovering around the $50USD mark, which is juuuuust cheap enough to make us consider spending the other $5,000 needed to knock it out.
