Dust off your Vans and skateboards, the Warped Tour is back for an anniversary festival at the Jersey shore.
The beloved traveling punk music/hardcore/extreme sports festival won't be going from town to town this summer but rather will make three exclusive stops on the West Coast, Midwest and East Coast.
For music and skating fans in our area, the Atlantic City Beach will host a two-day festival June 29 and 30.
Punk, rock, hip-hop, hardcore and metal music fans spent a generation sweating at Warped Tour stops around the country -- experiencing crazy mosh pits, extreme sports and hours of rock music packed into one-day stops.
Kevin Lyman, the owner of Warped Tour, announced that 2018 would be the music festival’s last nationwide summer tour. The 25th Anniversary event in 2019 is a way for fans to experience Warped Tour once again with the other two stops in Cleveland, Ohio, and Mountain View, California.
Some of the most famous bands in punk-rock (and other genres) played the traveling festival from Blink-182 to Green Day to All Time Low to Taking Back Sunday to Paramore and hundreds more.
Fans can expect to find out this year’s headliners for Warped Tour 2019 on March 1.
