Warped Tour Stars 2013
by Evan Lucy | June 8, 2013
At this point in its storied existence, the Vans Warped Tour is older (19 years and counting) than most of the mohawked and swoopy-haired attendees that pass through those parking lot gates each year. Indeed, this endless summer is still one of the most well-attended tours, thanks in large part to its mix of established acts and a bevy of under-the-radar soon-to-be superstars. This year, you'll find everything from thinking man's emo (Motion City Soundtrack) and raucous pop punk (The Wonder Years) to EDM (Big Chocolate), electro pop (3OH!3) and ear-shattering hardcore rock (August Burns Red) -- truly something for everyone. We're hoping tour founder Kevin Lyman is purposely holding back some punk rock royalty like NOFX, Pennywise or Bad Religion for the tour's 20th-anniversary trek next summer, but there are still plenty of mosh-pit-ready acts worth your time this year. Before you stock up on sunblock and safety pins, check out this playlist of some of Warped Tour 2013's must-see bands.
